Step 1: Remove passenger side dust shield behind tire, exposing OEM oil cooler lines and filter.

Step 2: Remove fasteners on inner fender liner and pull back to expose OEM oil cooler and bracket assembly.

Step 3: Remove OEM oil cooler and lines and filter from vehicle.

Step 4: Install -8 unions into oil filter housing with metal washers (with rubber inserts) provided.

Step 5: Remove oil cooler brackets from vehicle, using factory hardware bolt the bracket adapters to the OEM brackets (the longer 3 bolt bracket adapter goes toward the bottom of the OEM bracket). Using included hardware attach the bracket adapters to Setrab oil cooler.

Step 6: The 4 bolt bracket shown here.

Step 7: Before installing these two fittings into your Setrab oil cooler, use oil or sil-glide to lube o-rings.

Step 8: Be sure both copper washers are on the banjo fitting, attach lines to fittings before attaching to Setrab oil cooler.

Step 9: Install Setrab oil cooler in vehicle using OEM hardware.

Step 10: Attach fittings to -8 unions on the oil filter housing.

Step 11: Reinstall oil filter.

Step 12: Zip tie oil plug wires to bracket.

Step 13: Reinstall dust shield, it will protrude slightly further than stock, you can modify, but it will not affect anything as is.

Step 15: A zip tie here keeps this wire right where you want it.

Step 16: Be sure your duct fits well on the face of your oil cooler, loosening the brackets and moving it around can help get it where you need it.

Step 17: This is about how well the duct should line up.
