    Default Vec C Strut Brace

    My strut brace arrived this morning and when I went out to fit it I got all confused about everything I am not that good when it comes to car mechanics.

    Anyone got pictures of theirs fitted or a how2??

    Thanks for any advice.

    OK went back out and had another look - it seems that they are things in the way that will stop in being attached.

    Anyone had similar issues????

    When fitted they sit over the top of the brake fluid reservoir and the header tank,just make sure it clears the brakes by a couple of mm (if needed a couple of washers does the job).On some cars there's a nut on top of the inner wing this needs cutting off or the base of the brace needs cutting to clear,also after fitting close the bonnet carefully as it can bend the bonnet (mainly the 3.0d).
