2. Locate and remove the bolts that are used to secure the sides of the lower black factory trim piece. They are found in front of each front wheel well (one per side), and are removed using a 7mm socket.

5. Locate and remove the two downward facing screws that are located on the inside of the factory side trim pieces (see photo). They are directly behind where the installer is pointing in the photo. There's two total, one on each side, which can be removed using a small Phillips screwdriver. It may be necessary to remove the top 7mm bolt that is on the front inside wheel well. Just turn the vehicle’s wheels to get more room, and slightly pull away the inside plastic fender molding to better access these downward screws.

6. Starting at the side, carefully remove the factory Mustang front spoiler assembly by hand. Just pull gently and it will pop out, one section at a time. Be very careful to protect the sensor attached to the factory front spoiler assembly. You will need to gently pop out this sensor by hand (see next step).

10. Carefully clean and dry the lower front section of the body, right in front of each of the front wheels, using safe, mild soap and water. This is so that the adhesive used in the new CDC Chin Spoiler properly adheres to the sides of the vehicle.
11. This step is optional. Using black spray paint, carefully paint the front of the Mustang plastic windshield washer fluid reservoir. This recommended step makes sure the reservoir is not visible when viewing the vehicle from the front, since the new CDC Chin Spoiler has a larger opening than the stock chin spoiler. Of course, be very careful when using spray paint. Make sure to use sparingly, cover all other portions of the vehicle to avoid overspray, and use spray paint in an open, well ventilated area.

12. Carefully place the new Classic Design Concepts Chin Spoiler into position. Watch and make sure that all ten of the CDC Chin Spoiler’s tabs slide carefully into the factory opening. When done correctly, they should snap in.
13. Carefully re-install the factory sensor on to the CDC Chin Spoiler using the stock fasteners. They will clip into place by hand.

14. Carefully peel back one end of the adhesive tape backing on each end of the CDC Mustang Chin Spoiler. Peel it back 3-4 inches, enough so that you can access this later in the install.

15. Carefully stretch the Classic Design Concepts Chin Spoiler around the sides of the car and match it up with the two holes on the ends. Using a small Phillips screw driver, put in two screws (one per side) in the downward screw holes located on the inside of each side of the spoiler. Using a 7mm socket, put in a bolt in the front of each wheel well (one per side), which secures the sides of the spoiler.
