Some trimming is required. Place all components that are removed on a flat, sturdy surface. All items will be reinstalled unless otherwise noted after the baseplate is installed. The dimensional variations between otherwise identical vehicles can be considerable. While the baseplate was designed for easy installation, it may be necessary to tailor the baseplate slightly to compensate for vehicle manufacturer’s tolerances. The BX8869 Tail Light Wiring Kit is recommended for this vehicle. NOTICE • Handling of some cosmetic parts when installing this product may require the use of protective covers, rags, specialty tools, etc. to prevent damage. • When using power drills be aware of the dangers of torque and drill bit length. • When using a reciprocating saw be aware of objects behind the cutting surface. • Use a good quality paint to spray cut edges of frame to prevent rusting. • Be sure that ALL electrical connections are plugged in and accessories are functioning properly before reinstalling the fascia. • The baseplate is computer tested to your vehicle’s GVWR, exceeding this weight will void the manufacturer’s warranty. • Be sure to use Loctite® Red on all bolts before tightening. Tighten all bolts according to the torque chart provided. • Dealer or installer be certain the user receives these instruction sheet. • If the baseplate is in an accident, it must be replaced. DO NOT use it again! An accident can cause unseen damage and using it again could result in more damage or serious injury. DO NOT use the baseplate if it is damaged or missing parts. 405-0307 Page 2 of 6 2/28/14 BX2802 2012-14 Fiat 500 Abarth/Turbo 2014 Fiat 500c Abarth Installation Instructions Tools Required Large Vise Grip Utility Knife Phillips Screwdriver Torque Wrench Tape Measure Loctite® RED T30 Torx 10MM Socket 15MM Socket 10MM Wrench 15MM Wrench 1 2 3 Item No. Part No. Description Qty. 1.................................61-7123..............................BX2802 Baseplate............................................................1 2.................................Existing...............................10MM Washer..................................................................8 3.................................Existing...............................10MM Bolt........................................................................8 4.................................226-0046(not shown).........Class III Safety Cables.....................................................2 5.................................229-0359(not shown).........3/8” Quicklink, ZP.............................................................2      1.
