Instructions do not state whether or not the factory shield gets reused.

Just finished installation. Step J in the instructions says to place the canister onto the bracket and install rear bolt. What rear bolt? The original one won't work because the bracket is not threaded. And a new nut and bolt is not included. Luckily, I have a large assortment of miscellaneous nuts and bolts. 😉

Overall an easy install. but the directions aren't all that clear. The small nut included in the kit for the rubber bumper is not 10mm as stated. The directions also don't tell you that you'll need a 11/16 for the nutsert install. There was no info on how to release the plastic clips on the evap lines. The larger of the two evap lines kinks in its new location. I'll likely just replace the whole thing with rubber tube. The directions also said to cut into the electrical loom. I see no reason to do this if you route the plug up and above the unit it reaches fine.

I agree 100% with everything stated by David Costa with the addition of the instructions not stating the EVAP sensor has a lock tab on it and it breaks when clocking 180° per instructions. Remove the sensor then replace and clock 180°. Easy install otherwise.

I'm going to be doing this install soon (haven't received it yet). I see that the instructions were last updated on 10/29/2018, so I guess not all over the above feedback has been incorporated yet. I'm still a little unclear on some of it...

  1. "There was no info on how to release the plastic clips on the evap lines." So how exactly is this done? Some tips to prevent me from wasting time and potentially breaking the clips would be appreciated.
  2. "The larger of the two evap lines kinks in its new location. I'll likely just replace the whole thing with rubber tube." Is this still required, or do the included tubes now address this?
  3. "instructions not stating the EVAP sensor has a lock tab on it and it breaks when clocking 180° per instructions. Remove the sensor then replace and clock 180°." So do I rotate it 180° and just expect to break the tabs, or how exactly am I supposed to do this part?
  4. Maybe it'll be obvious once I have the part in hand, but where exactly is the bracket supposed to be placed along the crossmember? Wherever gives the lines the most reach?

Thanks!
-D.L.
