INSTALLATION

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

HINT:

  • Use the same procedure for the RH and LH sides.
  • The procedures listed below are for the LH side.

PROCEDURE

1. INSTALL REAR BODY NO. 3 PROTECTOR LH

HINT:

When installing the rear body No. 3 protector LH, heat the vehicle body and rear body No. 3 protector LH using a heat light.

Standard:

Item

Temperature

Vehicle Body

40 to 60°C (104 to 140°F)

Rear Body No. 3 Protector LH

20 to 30°C (68 to 86°F)

NOTICE:

Do not heat the vehicle body or rear body No. 3 protector LH excessively.

(a) Clean the vehicle body surface.

(1) Using a heat light, heat the vehicle body surface.

(2) Remove the double-sided tape from the vehicle body.

(3) Wipe off any tape adhesive residue with cleaner.

(b) Installation temperature

(1) When the ambient temperature is below 15°C (59°F), perform the installation procedure after warming the vehicle body surface (installation surface of the door frame, etc.) and tape to between 20 and 30°C (68 and 86°F) using a heat light. When the ambient temperature is higher than 35°C (95°F), cool the vehicle body surface (installation surface of the door frame, etc.) and tape to between 20 and 30°C (68 and 86°F) prior to installation.

HINT:

  • The most appropriate temperature for installing the tape is 25°C (77°F).
  • When the temperature is low, the tape turns stiff and falls off easily. When the temperature is high, the tape loses elasticity.

(c) Before installation

(1) Make sure any dirt on and around the vehicle body surface where the tape will be installed (installation surface of the door frame, etc.) is removed, and that the surface is smooth. If the surface is rough or dirt remains when pressing the tape onto the surface, air will be trapped under the tape and result in a poor appearance.

HINT:

Spray water on the shop floor to settle any dust.

(d) Key points for handling the tape

(1) The tape bends and rolls up easily. Store the tape between flat pieces of cardboard or other similar objects and keep it dry and level.

NOTICE:

Do not bend the tape or leave it in a place with a high temperature.

(e) Key points for the installation of the tape (how to use a squeegee and the installation procedure for a flat surface)

NOTICE:

  • Position the tape with a high level of accuracy to achieve a neat finish and to avoid peeling.
  • The tape cannot be reused because it deforms and will not fit after removal.

(1) To avoid air bubbles, slightly raise the part of the tape that is going to be applied so that its adhesive surface does not touch the vehicle body while applying the tape. Tilt the squeegee 40 to 50° (for pressing forward) or 30 to 45° (for pulling) from the vehicle body surface and press with a force of 20 to 30 N (2 to 3 kgf) while moving the squeegee at a constant slow speed of 3 to 7 cm (1.2 to 2.8 in.) per second.

NOTICE:

Be sure to observe the specified pressing speed, force and angle of the squeegee to avoid wrinkles and air bubbles.

HINT:

  • Either angle of the squeegee (for pressing forward or for pulling) is acceptable.
  • Be sure to apply the tape while removing the release paper 10 to 20 mm (0.393 to 0.787 in.) from the edge of the squeegee.

(f) Key points for the installation of the tape (how to use a squeegee and the installation procedure for corners)

(1) Remove the release paper and apply the tape carefully with your fingers.

(2) Before applying the tape to each corner, heat the tape using a heat light and gradually apply it to avoid wrinkles in the tape and achieve a neat finish.

(g) Check after installation

(1) After completing the application, check if the tape is applied neatly. If the tape is not applied neatly, apply new tape.

NOTICE:

Do not reuse the tape.

(h) for Double Cab:

(1) Using a heat light, heat the vehicle body and a new rear body No. 3 protector LH.

(2) Remove the peeling paper from the face of the rear body No. 3 protector LH.

(3) Align the rear body No. 3 protector LH as shown in the illustration and using a squeegee, apply the rear body No. 3 protector LH.

(4) Remove the application tape from the face of the rear body No. 3 protector LH.

(i) for CrewMax:
