Hi, 

 

I'm putting together a brake cooling kit similar to that of the stillen. I want to utilize the same part of the bumper for the intakes and this means removing the covers next to the "bumper fangs". Is this something I can gain access to just by removing the undertray or does the bumper need to come off? I am trying to minimize risk of messing about with the pedestrian impact system if at all possible.

 

Thanks in advance

 

David

They are easy to remove once you have the under tray off.

 

However - they hold the front impact sensors for the bonnet pop up system so you will have to relocate those somewhere else.  I'll dig out a picture in a moment from when I removed my front bumper...

 

Edit:  Here you go, you can see the sensors hanging from the wires (circled in red):

To be honest, you could just cable tie them somewhere. That would prevent the lifter light coming on. If you disconnect the sensors from the loom then the light would come on and I think that's an MOT failure.

But it might not activate the system if you don't bolt them somewhere on the bumper.

If someone were to walk out in front me and smacked their head on my engine block because the system didn't fire I'm not sure I could live with myself so I'd have to bolt them on.

I wont be doing anything that compromises the system. 

 

I cant even bring myself to cut holes into my cars. If it can be an oem type fitment or easily reversible then it wont be happening.
