Please read and understand these instructions completely before installation to avoid injury to yourself, damage to the vehicle or accessory.
Be certain to follow all specifications. For proper installation, two people are required
Dealer: These instructions contain important information for future reference and must be given to the customer at time of purchase or
upon completion of installation. Torque specifications must be followed when tightening bolts.
a) To apply the edge guard (Item C) to the windshields (Item A/B), find
a clean flat area where you can lay down both windshields. With an
extreme caution, partially remove the protective film and apply the edge
guard (Item D) using manual pressure to ensure good adhesion to both windshields.
b) Attach pivot components (Item F) to lower windshield with supplied hardware as follows. All screws that are passing through the windshield will be tightened later in step f). Do not over-tighten the screws that combine the slide arm with the lower pivot, these 2 parts need to swivel.
c) Assemble all hinges (Item D) to lower and upper windshield (Item A & B) as per drawings.
d) Attach clamps (Item E) to the roll cage of your vehicle as per drawings. Attention; all
clamps are not installed the same way. Do not tighten at this stage; you will need to
make adjustments later on.
e) Install windshield to top clamps only, using 2 M6 x 16 knobs as shown. Adjust height position and level of the windshield to ensure good fit with the hood. Tighten both knobs and top clamps only with specified torque indicated below.
f) Adjust all remaining clamp positions and tighten all screws with specified torque indicated. Ensure that the windshield is perfectly level before tightening. If the windshield isn’t level, windshield functions will be affected. Over-tightening clamps to roll cage could cause parts failures.
To operate the tilt mechanism:
Simply loosen both ‘T’ knobs (without removing them) and push on the lower windshield from the inside of the cab until the desired position is reached. Then tighten knobs. Note that there are 3 pre-determined positions on the slide arm; closed, half-opened and fullyextended.
To open vehicle hood:
Remove both ‘T’ knobs and fold the lower windshield upward as per picture.
