    Default Fitting VXR insert...

    What do I need to do to get my VXR insert to fit onto my rear bumper as the 2 brackets seem to be in the way??

    Cant see your pictures too well, but they should just clip in, with a bit of help from a hard thump and a strategically placed block of wood behind the bumper.

    Are those brackets needed as they are the only thing I can see that will stop the insert going on, only thing is I'm a bit nervous about cutting a brand spanking new bumper lol

    DO you mean the clips by the Orange Arrow??

    If so, they fold under and clip into a clip on the under side of the bumper!

    I bent those inwards after heating them up and then drilled the diffuser underneath and put a clip on it as normal fitment.
    All solid and fitted fine.
    Check out my pix

    Default insert

    not the ones in the orange arrows, the two longer bent ones ( in the FIRST pic) either side of the exhaust exit holes. those in the orange arrows can be clipped up and should be clipped up.
