Simply remove the factory clip that holds the neck to the core support. john-removing-washer-neck-clip And attach it to the battery hold down with the supplied M6 nut. john-relocating-washer-reservior-neck       We designed this kit to be the best fitting kit on the market, the only trimming necessary is to the foglight area of the front bumper (we will show you where in a bit).  Details and product info can be seen HERE.
