Insert male fitting with lock washer through hole and tighten half nut.
Screw female elbow to valve of spare tyre.
Route hose and male connector between spate tyre and cover.
Alternatively, Identify male fitting position on inside panel if possible.
Drill 10mm hole (caution for electrical wiring behind panel)
Insert male fitting with lock washer through hole and tighten half nut. Use supplied body washer.
To drill a round hole in thin sheet metal (body panel), take a piece of cloth for example an corner of an old tea towel cut into squares, an old flannel or anything you don’t mind cutting into squares. For holes up to 10mmØ I would suggest starting with a piece approximately 50mm square, and fold it in half, and then half again.
Drill a small pilot hole in the required location (3mmØ)
With the drill spindle stopped, locate the folded cloth centrally over the pilot hole and fit the large diameter drill to the machine. (10mmØ)
Advance the drill through the thin sheet metal, it may be difficult to get the drill to start cutting, but a gentle force should be used until the cloth has been pierced, taking care not to distort the sheet metal, the drill will then advance normally through the metal.
Apply standard clear nail polish to exposed bare metal and let dry for 24 hours to prevent body panel rust. See test results below (to avoid)
