    Default Front Splitter help

    Hi all, lookin at getting one of thse for my SRi cdti
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2006834460...84.m1423.l2649
    Had one on my 2.2 sri but was fitted when I bought it.

    Had a look but cant find any pics or how 2's on it. The one I did find I think had the pics lost when the server was changed over the other week.

    Are these easy to fit? Do they just slide on or do they need bonding? I know some people fit screws to make them harder to steal but where do the screws screw into as I cant see much surface area to screw onto?
    Any pics or how2's advice etc, greatly appreciated.

    What I had to do with mine was bond it on. Used some fibreglass stuff on the back of it. Can use screws but it's a small lip to attach. I'm sure someone else will give you a better idea!

    Thats what I thought but the pic in the link doesnt seem to have those I dunno what you would call them? Pegs? along the top that would slot in the holes. When I emailed the guy he said it didnt have them and I would have to use screws which has confused me a little.

    You'll need to use tigerseal on that one... When you remove the rubber splitter it slots through holes around the bottom of the bumper... So once removed you'll have about 8 ish slits.... The genuine splitter then lines up and has tongues which stick out and then slot into the slits and click into place. The aftermarket one dont have these tongues so its tigerseal instead
