What’s up, guys? Today, we will be installing our low-profile fender flares on this Cam-Am Maverick X3. So let’s get right to it.
[0:30] So we’re going to be starting on the front passenger side. The first thing we’re going to do is remove all of the following T30 screws out of the factory plastic. Now we’ll grab our passenger side front flare. We have all of our hardware removed, so we’ll take our flare, get it laid up into position, and then start installing our provided hardware in the factory threaded holes.
[01:15] We’re going to take one of our M6x30 screws provided in the kit, and these will thread right into the factory clips. You want to make sure you go to install this screw that you install one of the SuperATV beveled washers there. And what we’re doing is getting our fender flare up in the position to where it’s going to stay in place for us. We’re not going to fully tighten anything yet because we may have to adjust it around a bit to get all the hardware in.
[01:52] So we’re going to install our M6X30 bolt through here just like this. Make sure that you have the washer—line it up with the factory hole where we previously removed the hardware, that had the nut on the backside of it. Once we have it through, we’ll take one of our fender washers and one of our nylock nuts, place the fender washer on the thread. And then go ahead and start the nut on the threads of the screw.
[02:28] Next, we’ll take the factory screw that came out of this hole and get it popped back through both layers of plastic (the front and then get it through to the back). You may have to kind of pinch the plastic together. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to get it all lined back up. Just kind of thread it through.
[03:00] Once we have our threads popped through our plastic, we’re going to grab our bracketattach the short side of the bend here to the threads. The longer side will be where we are going to attach our fender flare. Now we’re going to take one of our M6x20 screws, the shorter screws in the kit, pop it through, and then line this up with the hole and the bracket.
Then we’re going to take a M6 flat washer, and slide it onto the threads and take one of our M6 nuts and get it started. We’re going to go through and fully tighten our hardware, and then drill this hole here.
[04:02] So now we’re going to take a 7/32 drill bit drill straight through the hole and the flare through the factory plastic. Once our holes are drilled, we’ll install our hardware. The holes are a little tight, which is good. We’re just going to run it in through the hole with our impact, and thread right through the plastic until we get a couple of threads on the backside.
Then we’ll take our fender washer and reach up inside. Drop the fender washer on, and then take the nylock nut and get it started. Then we’ll grab our 10mm wrench and our 4 mm allen and fully tighten the hardware.
[05:03] All right, now that we have our front fender flare installed on the passenger side, it’s a good time to mention that you can trim the bottom of this flare off if you’d like to. And if you are running a nerf bar that’s making contact and pushing it out, what you may have to do is make a little bit of a notch or an indention just so that nerf bar isn’t pushing your flare out. We’re probably just going to leave ours how it is today. They’re sitting well and looking good, so now we can move onto the rear.
[05:30] Now, moving on to the rear, we’re going to go ahead and remove this rearmost torque screw right here as well as this 13mm bolt. We’re going to grab our passenger-side rear flare and the factory screw that we just removed from the rear of the plastic here. Now grab one of our fender washers out of our kit, pop the screw through the fender washer, and put the screw through the flare. We’re going to line it up with the factory hole and go ahead and get it started.
[06:44] Next, we’re going to take our factory bed bolt and line it back up with the hole. I’m just going to go ahead and get it started just like that. So now we’re going to line up the holes on our flare with the factory cutouts on the plastic.
[07:13] Now we’re going to get our M6x30 hardware and install it through the fender flare to the factory plastic. Then we’ll install our fender washer and lastly, our nylock nut. We’re going to pull our flare up and tighten it, and then drill our hole directly through the flare and the plastic. Once we have one hole drilled, we’ll install our hardware and drill our last hole. Then take our M6x30 hardware, and we’re going to run the screw through the plastic.
[08:20] Once we have our hardware installed here, we’ll line up the flare and drill our bottom hole. Now that our hole is drilled, we will grab our hardware, and start it through the hole here. Install the fender washer, the nylock nut, and then we’ll go ahead and fully tighten all of our hardware on this flare.
Now we’re just going to repeat the same steps from the passenger’s side to the driver’s side.
That’s all there is to it to install SuperATV’s Low Profile Fender Flares on this Can-Am Maverick X3.
