As there is a few guys on the site doing type r styling to their 5 door, decided to help out with a little how to.

in this thread i will tell you how to do all the kit

hope it helps:)

tools needed
flat head screwdriver
philips screw driver
10mm socket an ratchet
pliers
PATIENCE:)

APPROXIMATE TIME OF COMPLETION: 4-6 HOURS

so this is how it will look before you start




i decided to start from back to front

so lets begin

1. removing rear arches:

first remove star head screw from inner arch next to back door and one opposite



next remove 1 popper from underneath rear splitter the one that joins the arch to the splitter

then simply pull and the arch will come off dont be shy to be ruff to get it off

Do this for both sides

2. removing rear bumper:

first remove the 4 cap covers two each side


this will unveil 1 10mm bolt under each cap


undo these 4 bolts

next remove 8 poppers along the lower rear splitter


next remove 1 starhead screw each side of the car that was underneath the arch


now its a matter of giving the bumper a pull to get it off
**be careful if you have parking sensor this has to be diconnected**
if you have parking sensors simply disconnect


this should leave you with this



3. adding type r splitter your bumper:

first lay down a sheet for the bumper to lie on as you dont want to scratch it

next remove 2 10mm bolts that holds i one single triangle do this for both


next remove the poppers along the top of the splitter


next simply prise the bumper from the splitter there are little clips all the way along easy enough to just prise apart

the do the reverse to fit new splitter
you should be left with this


4. refitting rear bumper:

as stage 2 but in reverse

should be left with this


5. refitting rear arches:

first of all you will need to get these clips as the type r aches are different


take one clip and snip the top of the circle head till you can get smallest square possible

remove the 5th clip from the bottom and replace with new clip


as you can see from the pic the difference between clips

then just repeat stage 1 but in reverse

should be left with this



6. removing front arches:

first remove 3 starhead screws from the arch closest to the door


remove one popper just above they screws


just above that popper is another screw and popper above the tyre

next follow the arch under the bumper and u will find a rubber fin behind that there will be 2 poppers and a screw


then simply pull the arch off

repeat this process for the other side

7. replacing side skirts

you have already removed the front arches

firstly there is 3 poppers along the inside of the skirt next to the exhaust


next remove the star head screw next to the rear arch


now u are ready to remove

BE WARNED DO NOT PULL SKIRT FROM THE SIDE U WILL BREAK ALL CLIPS

go to the rear arch and pull the side skirt towards the back tyre it will come off but may need some pulling, you will be left with this


to get the white clips out twist and pull the put them on new skirt

u can just push the new skirt on now repeat for other side

beware u will be left with a gap at the back door this is normal

you will be left with this



8. removing front bumper:

firstly remove all the poppers on the panel under the bonnet



next remove 2 starhead screws one each side that was under the arch


next remove 4 poppers under the front splitter

now u should be able to completely remove the bumper by pulling and be left with this


do the same process as stage 3

then simply do the reverse to refit

now refit the front arches

JOB COMPLETE:D:D:D:D:D

you will be left with this :cool::cool::cool:




WORD OF WARNING
THIS MY CAUSE WAR WOUNDS:facepalm:




ENJOY :)

like to say thanks to tony (saint2k) for letting me use the photos of his car

That's alright, I've already got a restraining order on it!

No, I actually considered a Golf before this car and before I got my previous Civic, too.

What's it like compared to the Civic?

Also those clips you mentioned; didn't know about that, where do I buy them?

Hi Gee,

Do the side skirts fit straight off on the five door or do you need to modify or buy ones already to size.

Cheers
