Installing the Brackets AIR BAG 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 to you or others. IMPORTANT: Plan all cable routing before the installation. 1 Remove the rear-door panel assembly. For removal instructions, refer to the vehicle’s factory service manual. 2. Route the wire from the lighthead through the bracket. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN SCREWS/NUTS To avoid damage to the lightheads do not overtighten the screws and nuts. 3. Mount the lighthead to the bracket. The Viper EXT mounts without the bezel using hardware supplied with the lighthead; the Impaxx mounts with the bezel using the supplied 6-32 Phillips screws and 6-32 nylon lock nuts. 4. Position the assembly on the rear door of the vehicle at the location you want. The position you select should lie within the fixed area of the window glass. Using the assembly as a template, mark the centers of the three mounting holes.
