Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the
correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners
requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service
procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint
surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and
may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when
installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

3. Install the bolts/screws to the center of the grille.

Tighten
Tighten the bolts/screws to 4 Nm (35 lb in).

Decal or Stripe Replacement


A pressure sensitive adhesive adheres the stripes and decals to the painted surfaces.

Use a wetting solution in order to lift and position the stripe or decal during installation.

A wetting solution ensures a better bond between the stripe or decal and the panel assembly.

If the metal or underlying painted surfaces are damaged, repair and refinish the metal as needed
before you install the stripes or decals.

Notice: Striping material highlights vehicle surface imperfection. All dings, rough metal, paint
defects and uneven two-tone paint breaklines must be eliminated before stripe/decal application.
Freshly painted surfaces must be allowed to dry thoroughly before installing stripe or decal.
Residual solvents in fresh painted surfaces can lead to subsequent blistering problems if stripe or
decal is applied before complete release of solvents.

Maintain body surface and decal temperature between 21-38C (70 -100F) during installation.

Important: Do not apply the decals when the body surface and the decal temperatures are below
21C (70F).

Use auxiliary heat sources to warm the body surface and decals if the temperature is less than 21
C (70F).

Notice: Use of harsh chemicals when cleaning can damage exterior lamps. Suggested cleaners are
a mild soap and water, or Varnish Makers and Painters (VM&P) Naptha. VM&P Naptha is a specific
type of naptha and should not be substituted by any other naptha.

Important: When you apply stripes or decals on flexible surfaces (fascias, etc.), use the WET
method. The WET method reduces the formation of bubbles under the decal due to the outgassing
potential of the flexible materials.

You may apply stripes and decals dry. If the stripe or decal shows bubbles, use the "wet" method.
Use the "wet" method for large graphics packages.

The following equipment and materials, or the equivalent, are necessary when making a quality
stripe or decal installation:

Wetting solution foaming type window cleaner that does not contain ammonia
Silicone, wax and grease remover
Varnish Makers and Painters (VM&P) naphtha
Isopropyl alcohol
Squeegee about 75-100 mm (3-4 in) wide, plastic or hard rubber. Deburr any sharp or rough
edges in order to prevent scratching of the stripe or decal
Water bucket and sponge or spray bottle
Sandpaper 800 grit or finer, wet or dry type
Heat gun 2011 General Motors Corporation. All rights reserved.

from the panel surface.
5. Remove all traces of adhesive residue from the painted surfaces using the following items:
Silicone, wax and grease remover
Varnish makers and painters (VM&P) naphtha.

Installation Procedure
1. Prepare the surface.

Notice: To prevent possible vehicle, stripe or decal damage, always refer to manufacturer's
packaged instructions.

Important: If the area where you apply the stripe or decal has been refinished, remove any
imperfections that may show through the stripe or decal.

2. Clean the painted surface with the following items:


Silicone
Wax
Grease remover
3. Clean the area where you apply the stripe or decal. Use a 50/50 mixture of isopropyl alcohol
and water.
4. Wipe the panel surface with a clean cloth while the solvent drys.
5. Apply the wetting solution to the area where you install the stripe or decal.

7. Remove the backing material of the stripe or decal as needed.
8. Install the stripe or decal to the panel.
9. Working from the center if possible, squeegee the stripe or decal into position.
10. Apply additional wetting solution in order to ease installation of the stripe or decal.

Apply a soapy wetting solution on the top side of the stripe or decal for the following reasons:

In order to ease the pull of the squeegee on the stripe or decal


In order to eliminate the possibility of damage
11. Apply heat to the stripe or decal at recessed areas.
12. Press the stripe or decal into recess in order to obtain a firm bond.
13. Use adequate light reflection in order to detect any irregularities in the stripe or decal that
may have developed during installation.

Important: Do not use a razor blade or a knife edge.

14. Use one of the following items in order to remove all bubbles by piercing:
A safety pin
A needle
A tool with the same size piercing tip
15. Pierce a bubble on the outer edge.
16. Force the air out from the opposite edge with the blade of the squeegee.
17. Install all previously removed components. Clean the components as needed.
