Step 1: Select Driver’s or passenger side lens. Instructions will be the same.  Remove original screws (Fig.1). With the screws removed be careful  not to change the position of the taillight assemble. Note the size  difference of the two screws. The large size goes to the outside of the  lens (Fig.2). 

Step 2: Insert the Large 2” replacement screw through the front side of the  new H/D taillight guard starting with the outer top mounting hole.  Place one of the Black Plastic Lens Spacer over the large 2” screw from  the back side of guard (Fig.3). Insert screw and assemble into outer top  hole (Fig.4). 

Step 3: Start outer top screw but do not tighten. Leave loose to allow for the fitment  of the remaining 3 screws and spacers. Move to the inner top screw location  and insert a Black Plastic Lens Spacer behind guard and into lens mounting  opening (Fig.5). Insert Smaller 2” Philips Head Screw through the front of  the guard and into the lens assemble (DO NOT TIGHTEN). Follow the same  procedure for the outer lower and inner lower mounts. Remember that the  larger 2” Philips head screws go to the outside. Confirm fitment of cover and  proper placement of Black Plastic Spacers prior to tightening (Fig.6). 

Step 4: With all screws and spacers properly positioned, proceed to tighten screws.  DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN, it is possible to crack the factory lens if  excessive force is used during the installation and the tightening of the  replacement screws (Take Your Time) (Fig.7). 

Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4 for opposite side (Fig.8).
