Step 7

Optionally, install a black anti-theft security screw in the hole on the right side.

Note: Take care to not overtighten the screw, it only needs to be snug to work.

Step 8

Don’t forget to remove SnapPlates for automated car washes. Most touchless washes are fine, but better to be on the safe side!

Step 3

Turn each screw counterclockwise (lefty loosey) 1/2 turn to loosen the latches by 0.25mm. Pull each latch with your fingers to make sure they are extended and then try the fit on the grille.

Repeat up to four times (two full turns) as needed.

Important! Contact support before proceeding past two turns. If loosened more than two turns, the SnapPlate could become stuck in the grille and it may be very difficult to remove.
