    Default Irmscher Front Splitter Fitting Tips....

    Ey-up chaps, hope you've had a good Christmas. I have my genuine Irmscher front splitter for my PF/L sat in my garage ready for fitting, but before I do does anyone have any tips on fitting it..?

    I know with the copy ones the bumper is best to come off to make bonding it on much easier, but what about the proper one..?

    Surely leaving the bumper on would make pulling the old splitter off easier and pushing in the new clips for the Irmy Splitter....?

    Cheers in advance all

    From memory when I fitted mine , it was a little awkward with some of the clips when fitting the new splitter and had to leave two or three off with the bumper still on the car (4 years ago) That was before I knew how the bumper came off and would recommend removing the bumper now as that only takes 10 minutes

    When I took mine off the signum I just jacked it up and got under neath. Clip it on and a few screws or some sealant

    just wait for the swirl valves ect to go and get the garage to do it. Its bound to happen sooner or later.
