The goods turned up
Time to install!!
Here is a picture of the engine before starting, lovely and dirty!!!
I spent a good hour cleaning up the engine bay, with clothes and brushes, with it ending up looking like this!
I installed the Rain tray cover, this just clip into place, no required additional securing of it
And then the Battery cover, this just slides into place.
So now onto the OEM Right Engine Cover, the before shoot!
For the Right engine cover you do need to install two secure parts first.
Step 1 â€“ take require parts and put together as per pictures below
Step 2, remove current bolt in place shown below
I compared the original bolt and new part!
Step 3 install new bolt
First secure part installed and completed
Second secure part installation!
Again take parts and put together.
Step 1 Take one of the rubber gommets and using the Bolt removed from the first secure part, put screw through gommet and then screw into the (holder) bracket and you should end up with the following;
You will see in pictures additional screws, two of these will be used to secure this item to the car. The screws will be cut down, as these ones in the picture are too long!
Step 2 "The holder (bracket) needs to be attached to the underside of the main radiator support
(right under the rubber seal) on the B6 models there are no pre-drilled holes for this, like the B7 models. I measured up a few times and tested out the cover in place and then drilled two holes and installed the bracket in place as seen below!
Step 3 â€“ Install the OEM Right engine cover, stand back and just look at install
And now the completed Engine bay area with the new covers
Very happy with the results!
