Step 1: Remove Cruise Control Module (If Applicable)

  • If your vehicle is equipped with cruise control, you will need to removed the cruise control module. Use an 8mm socket to remove the two bolts that hold the module into the vehicle. 
  • You can set this aside by resting a microfiber towel on the brake rotor and securely placing the module onto the towel.


Step 2: Remove Factory Sound Deadener

  • Depending on your vehicle, your factory sound deadener will be held in with either two or three push pins.
  • Using a push pin removal tool, remove the push pins.


Step 3: Install The New Sound Deadener

  • Once you have removed the factory sound deadener, take this time to clean up the area.
  • Place the sound deadener with the "flap" facing toward the inside of the car.
  • Replace the push pins with the included push pins, securing the new sound deadener.


Step 4: Reassemble

  • Once you have secured your sound deadener, you can reassemble your cruise control module, splash shields, reinstall your wheels, and you are good to go.
