Install

Installation procedure is the reverse of removal, except for the following:

Caution:
Repeated installations might strip the door mounting holes for the closeout panel. On installation, hand-start the screws so as to reduce the risk of stripping the threads.
Install rivnuts where any of the mounting holes for the closeout panel are stripped. Use a 7.5mm drill to prepare the hole for rivnut installation.
