Detailed instructions and a template for your specific car will come with your new set!
Step (1) Identify all pieces in your kit by holding each piece up to, and comparing them with, the edge of each vehicle’s door.
Step (2) Open the first door and clean the edge of the door from top to bottom with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free towel. Pinch the wet towel between your thumb and forefinger
NOTE: It is critical to the installation that car door edges are completely free of ALL residue. Otherwise, the door edge guard may not engage or grip the door’s edge properly.
Step (3) Cut out the door guard template provided with your kit. Fit the notch of the template around the door handle.
Step (4) Align top edge of door edge guard with lower edge of template alignment notch as shown.
Step (5) While holding the door edge guard with one hand, use the soft side of a 12 oz rubber mallet to begin tapping the guard channel
Step (6) Continue tapping the door edge guard channel onto the door’s edge moving toward the top and then proceed to the bottom of the door.
Step (7) Carefully close and open the door to ensure door edge guard has sufficient clearance from any adjoining body panel.
NOTE: Removal of some door sealant may be required on certain vehicles. Adell has developed a special tool for executing this procedure,
