Hey guys,

Has anyone installed a Maxton Design front splitter and have a bit of a how-to guide. The instructions that come with it are useless and their website isn't much better. I might be missing something but from what I can tell you cant install it with the bumper on the car as there is no access to tighten the nuts, however you cant install it with the bumper off as the splitter covers the plastic bumper mounting clips on the underside of the bumper so you wouldn't be able to remount the bumper.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

What do the supports bolt to, and did anyone actually do any balance testing with it on track? I've seen splitters get ripped off by the shear power of the wind if the anchors aren't tied to something strong enough.

It may provide too much front downforce and should probably be paired with a different spoiler in back.

I ended up emailing them and running them through the issue, turns out you need to drill holes in the splitter where the splitter covers the plastic screw clips. Makes you wonder why they don't add the holes into the mold when they manufacture the splitter.

Yep, it's put on with bar on car, it's a bit fiddly but can be done.
Remember to measure twice and only drill once!
The end result is worth the effort!

Just look for the mounting bolts and nuts underneath and it should be fairly straight forward !
