Before temporarily installing the new parts, apply body sealer to the reinforcement, side impact protection beam and backside of the new parts.
1) Apply sealer evenly of about 10 mm (0.39 in.) from the flange and 3 mm (0.12 in.) in diameter on the outer panel and apply just enough sealer for the reinforcement and side impact protection beam to make contact.
Bend the flange hem about 30° with a hammer and dolly. Then, fasten tightly with a hemming tool. HINT:
