Default How to install 97 side skirts?

Guys,

I guess I am being a moron but I am not working out how to install the 97+ sideskirts on my pre-97 SC.

The lower area with the 4-6 holes I am not seeing these holes under the car to clip these in... What are my missing? The rear molding was cake but this side is killing me!!

I tried searching but no luck...

Your not going to see any holes under the car. They go straight into the side where the front and rear side moldings were removed (door sits between them). The front moldings are held in by screws which you have to acess by removing or moving the wheel well splash sheild out of the way. Once the original side moldings are off you just pop in the new ones. Hope this gives you a better Idea of how to get them on. Good luck with the install

There's only one nut inside the fender that holds the front molding, and the rest you can just pry it off.

I think it's time consuming to remove the front molding.

Guys,

I have the front and rear moldings already off. I am trying to install just the sideskirt. Where the sideskirt curves to go under the car there are 7 holes in the sideskirt. It is these holes I am having problems with. Here is a picture of them circled. Are you saying I don't connect those holes to the car?



Thanks,
Jonny

Again, they screw into the car. Once you pull the moldings you'll see. You have not pulled them all yet because you still have your door sills in (or you'd have already know this )

I have everything off the car that will possibly come off. Still have no idea what about 4 different holes go to. When you switch to 97+ are there cerain holes in the sideskirt that go unused?

OK guys, here's my questions.



I don't have any holes on my undercarriage for #1 to go into...

Does anyone know the correct name/part number of the clip that goes onto #2?




Are my correct to assume that the clips that go into #2 push into holes in #3?



On a pre-97 model #4 is a bolt, which obviously doesn't work anymore. Does anyone know the clip (which would be the same as the clips in #3) part number? To make it easier, does anyone KNOW, not guess, which parts I am looking for on this list?



Thank you very much

Jonny

"I don't have any holes on my undercarriage for #1 to go into..."

The holes are actually there but hidden by rubber grouments. I did not even bother screwing anything there and all works fine.

You can find similar clips for #2 which goes into #3 at the dealer or if your lucky you can get similar ones at your local autozone, kragen, etc. I was missing a couple and just got somthing that would hold it in from autozone.

Again don't worry about #1 holes as I didn't use them and had no problems..

Bryan,

Thanks for your response. I am hoping someone can tell me from the list which ones the correct ones are so I can order them from Lexus. I just want to make sure it is done right and don't want to risk it coming off or getting damaged. I have bought the ENTIRE 97+ body upgrades brand new so I have a lot of money invested into making it perfect!

Regards,
Jonny

That is perfect man! I don't suppose you have one zoomed out just a little? Thanks again, exactly what I needed! Also, one that goes further down so I can see how many of each I need?

ACleanSC4: were do you get those diagrams with the part numbers from! Those look like dealer diagrams and off the computer! Is there a website you can go and find all those?
