It seems pretty easy to do. Seems like you have to dremel a cutout for that white piece that the tool tray screws into but I have fears of dremeling too much going thru the deck

Anyone know off hand the part number for that white screw block? Or any tips on getting it out of the OEM trunk? It's wedge in pretty good.

Default Re: oem csl bootlid trunk diy install

Apologies for the mega old thread revival.

I just installed my OEM CSL bootlid today and like others asked above I am looking for the "how to" install the oem toolkit in the OEM CSL lid.

It will drive me crazy until I get it fitted so any help greatly appreciated.

Cut a square:
remove the square peg from the oem metal bootlid. measure the opening dimensions from the oem metal bootlid and transfer to your oem csl bootlid. use a thin round cutting wheel bit to cut 2 diag lines and 2 veritcal lines without crossing intersections. then use a nibbler or a very fine dremel bit to make the square corners.

Widen the groves:
the thickness of the metal for the peg is much thinner then the material used in the oem csl bootlid. if you look closely at the square peg, there are groves on all 4 corners. these groves press up against the walls of the square opening when the tool kit is closed. but since the oem csl bootlid walls are thicker, you'll have to widen the grooves on the square peg just a little bit. use the same round cutting bit to widen the groves. hold the peg in hand (where gloves) and score along each grove of the peg until its at the desired width.

just do a little bit at a time. be careful to not poke through the other side of the bootlid

Dont have any cutting tools and never used them but might still try it! Is this the only way?
Also, what about mounting the plastic strip/hanger thingy?

Thanks for your reply, read your install pdf about 10 times prior to installing the lid. Many thanks
