Liftgate Emblem/Nameplate Assembly

Caution:

Refer to Exterior Trim Emblem Removal Caution.

Procedure

  1. The part and surface should be 21?°C (70?°F) prior to installation. The vehicle should remain 21?°C (70?°F) for one hour after assembly to allow adhesive to develop sufficient bond strength.
  2. Use a Heat Gun or equivalent to remove the old nameplate. Clean all adhesive from the liftgate panel and wipe the surface dry with a clean lint-free towel prior to installing the new nameplate.
  3. When removing protective liners from the adhesive tape, be careful not to touch tape with hands and do not allow tape to come in contact with dirt or any foreign matter prior to adhesion.
  4. Using the previous witness marks of the old emblem/nameplate or making measurements from another alike vehicle, use masking tape to reference the alignment of the new emblem/nameplate to the liftgate panel.
  5. Close the rear liftgate panel prior to adhesion.
  6. Using the palm of the hand, wet out the emblem/nameplate to the rear liftgate panel to ensure full adhesion of the emblem is made.
