If you are referring the to F32, I did mine last weekend. Very easy.

1. Clean side skirts.

2. Jack car up or use ramps so you have enough clearance to use a cordless drill under them.

3. Peel off double sided tape on side skirt extensions and place them on. The F32 ones have grooves which fit perfectly on the side skirt so you cant really stuff it up. (test the placement first before removing the double sided tape so you know the exact position). The double sided tape holds the extension in place while you drill the holes.

4. Use a 6mm drill bit to drill the holes in the side skirt. I started with one at each end then proceeded from rear to front.

5. After each drill hole, insert the plastic rivets which come with it. Note, these are really tight and can be a pain to get in. Requires muscle and a short phillips head screw driver. Once in though, they are very secure.

6. Repeat on each side.

F31 but I am assuming it is the same? Do the ones for the F32 have a lip on the inner underneath?
