The Front Right Wheel Arch Liner

Step 01

Retrieve your Front Right Engine Bay Liner assembly from the previous phase. Fit the four posts of the Front Right Wheel Arch Liner into the matching holes on the outside of the Front Right Engine Bay Liner, as shown:

Secure these parts together with four (4) EP screws, as shown:

Step 02

Retrieve your Body assembly and carefully turn it upside down on a soft cloth. Lower this Wheel Arch Liner assembly into the inside of the front right wheel opening.

Make sure the Right Headlight wiring is not trapped or pinched under this assembly to prevent damaging it:

Secure the Wheel Arch Liner assembly to the body with two (2) CM screws, as shown.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:
