Installation of Steel Skid Plate (Pics)

Recommended Posts

Well it wasn't real easy but having 4 hands is helpful...

First remove the bumper and headlights... several screws are removed from inner wheel wells in order to get to the screw that hold the bumper in place, Once those are removed there is a plastic release then holds the bumper slides in & out of on the sides... As one holds the bumper, the other guy detached tubing if you have pop up headlight washers, also remove one wire harness if you have PDC...


Once off.. then drill holes on the inside where they are clearly marked for you... Different size holes are need for propper fitment.


Then attach plate and attach round washers once plate is in...

Use a socket and a hammer to lock down those large washers...


Also where the tow hooks are, that area around where the exsiting cover was needs to be cut so that the plate sits flush on the bumper.. as seen here...


Then put her all back together..

Also I changed out the H11 Fog lights to match the Bi-Xenons color now..

And it will look like this..


Only good pic I have from a distance since I installed before my race last weekend..

Thank you to everyone that has posted information pertaining to the installation of the stainless skid plate. Many posts recommend that you reach up inside the bumper (from the wheel well) and locate the lever that will let you remove it. For those of you with a turbo the intercoolers make this step very difficult.

The easiest method for finding the lever is to remove the headlights. This is very easy to do following the instructions in the owner’s manual and using the supplied tool in the back of the Cayenne. The Cayenne and Cayenne S owners should consider this method as well, as it really is much easier.

I’ve attached a couple of images that show the placement of the lever for those who are not familiar with where it is. Keep in mind, there is one on both sides. In one of the picture you can see the headlight washing fluid hose, the wiring harness, and the wires for the side marker.
