Mounting Instructions for Viper® EXT and IMPAXX® Lightheads
NOTE: For electrical installation instructions, refer to the Installation and Maintenance Instructions packed
with the Impaxx or Viper EXT.
Mounting the Lights
AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT—Do not install equipment or route wiring in the
deployment path of an air bag. Failure to observe this warning will reduce the
effectiveness of the air bag, or potentially dislodge the equipment, causing
serious injury or death.
IMPORTANT: Plan all cable routing before the installation.
1. Raise the vehicle hood. Locate the plastic panel between the radiator crossbar and the grille fascia
(Figure 1).
2. Remove and retain the three plastic quarter-turn panel fasteners. Remove the plastic panel.
3. Locate the mounting position on the extruding grille members (Figure 2 on page 3). Using the bracket
(8613163) as a template, center-punch two drill-position marks on the mounting point.
DRILLING PRECAUTIONS—Before drilling holes, check the area you are drilling
into to be sure you do not damage vehicle components. All drilled holes should be
de-burred and all sharp edges should be smoothed. All wire routings going through
drilled holes should be protected by a grommet or convolute/split loom tubing.
4. Drill two 1/4" holes in the mounting location at the drill-position marks.
5. Route the wires from the lighthead through the bracket.
