rear valance removal

Recommended Posts

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Peter,

On either side of the valance where the supports are runs a bolt into the bumper. Utilise a 10mm socket and extension. Prior to doing that I would suggest to spray some penetrating lubricant on the bolt.

Peter,

So to understand correctly when you mean the front lip you are talking about the splitter? The item that is a left and a right side piece? I think that after my Esprit finally gets out of the dealership ( no not out yet ), I am going to remove the new one that has been installed. From there I will make a mold of it and repeat it in carbon fibre. I have a few other bits I want to change out and make molds of and repeat in carbon fibre.

Little bit of a spring clean up on the motor eh? I take it that all is running fine with it now.
