Download Installation NOTE: • Be careful not to damage the paint finish. • If you’re also installing door edge guards (sold separately), install them before you install the body side moldings. • Body side moldings should be installed only if the ambient air temperature is 15°C (60°F) or above. • To allow the adhesive to cure, do not wash the vehicle for 24 hours. • These instructions are for the left side of the vehicle. The same procedure applies to installing on the right side of the vehicle. Front Door 1. Align the front template on the driver’s door as shown and secure the template with masking tape. 2. Peel back approximately 1½ to 2 inches of adhesive backing, and tape the ends to the front surface of the body side molding. Remove the small end pieces of adhesive backing. 3. Clean the location where the left front body side molding will attach with one alcohol swab. 4. Align the left front body side molding with the front template and attach it to the driver’s door. If the vehicle has door edge film installed, align the end with the door edge film. 5. Remove the front template. 6. Press on the left front body side molding firmly with the palm of your hand while removing the adhesive backings. Remove about 2 to 4 inches at a time. 7. Using a rubber roller, apply firm pressure while rolling to set the adhesive. Rear Door 8. Align the rear template on the left rear door as shown and secure the template with masking tape.
