PACKING REQUIREMENTS

Bootliner

  • 1600mm cut length of 30mm self-adhesive loop fastener
  • Minimum of 10 self-adhesive loop fastener tabs

Rear door cover

  • Minimum of 12 self-adhesive loop fastener tabs

VERY IMPORTANT PREPARATION

To ensure a good bond, when using the self-adhesive hook & loop fasteners to attach the Bootliner to the plastic / metal trim (Not the carpet); it is most important to remove silicone film from the vehicle trim. Silicone is applied during manufacture and can also be found in many valeting products. It is highly likely there will be a build-up of silicone. Before applying any selfadhesive fastener pads, the surface MUST be thoroughly cleaned using a silicone remover. (The fasteners cannot be used once it has been in contact with silicone). We recommend "Intensive Tar Remover” made by AutoGlym and available from Halfords. Wipe off thoroughly any residue with a separate clean dry cloth. Unfortunately we are unable to supply this product, as it cannot be transported via our postal carrier.

NOTE: the adhesive takes 24hrs to reach full adhesion – do not disturb during.

PREPARATION

  • Remove the parcel shelf, it can be replaced later. Unlock the rear seats and fold flat.
  • You will need a pair of scissors and a spoon

  • The Bumper Flap either folds into the vehicle OR can be detached and stored elsewhere when you close the tailgate.

SEAT FLAP

  • The Seat flap is designed to protect the top of your rear seat giving additional protection from drooling dogs etc.
  • The Seat Flap can also be used in conjunction with the Rear Plus Option(s). With the rear seats in the folded position the Seat Flap extends the coverage over any exposed section of the seat backs and the headrests
  • Attach the Seat Flap to the loop fastener strip that has been manufactured into the Boot Liner just below the top of the rear seats.
  • The flap is then placed over the rear head rests and down the back of the passenger seats.
  • If the Seat Flap sits over large headrests and obstructs your rear view: carefully create openings in the flap to accommodate the headrest posts.
  • Be aware the Seat flap may cover your rear seat belts, so please ensure they do not obstruct them if in use

TAILGATE COVER

  • Use the self-adhesive loop fastener tabs to attach the cover to the plastic trim.
  • The four hook & loop fastener straps pass behind and then over the door handles to fasten back onto the cover.
