The following is only a brief overview of the instructions,download the Adobe PDF file for complete installation instructions.

Unpack the Strut Tower covers and confirm you have one Passenger side and one Drivers side Strut Tower cover. The underside of the covers will be marked with a "P" for Passenger side or a "D" for Driver side. Place the covers on the top of the strut tower by aligning the fingers of the underside to the center hole of the in the shock tower. Be sure the notched portion of the cover is facing towards the fender. Once aligned the covers should snap in place with a good push.
But be sure to read the below instructions thoroughly before beginning.

Please read through the instructions carefully before starting this project.  Take the time to get all the materials together as well as all the safety equipment.


1. Identify the driver and passenger side covers by looking for the "P" and "D" on the underside of the cover.

2. Snap the covers in place by lining the fingers on the underside of the cover up with the center hold in the shock tower. Make sure the notched portion of the cover is facing towards the fender. The covers need a pretty good push or rap for the fingers to seat in place.
