992 Wing Riser Installation

  1. Gather required tools 
    • ¼” Socket Wrench with T25, T30, and 8mm sockets, ~6” extension
    • ⅜” Socket Wrench with 13mm socket, ~6” extension
    • ⅜” Torque Wrench
    • Microfiber towels, to protect paintwork
    • Blue loctite

  2. Using the ¼” socket wrench with T30 attachment, remove the four screws securing the wing to the risers. A microfiber towel is helpful here, to avoid damaging the paintwork. Note the position of the front screw before removal, as this affects the wing angle of attack. Remove the wing.

  3. Note for later re-assembly: the bolt with the shoulder goes in the rear.

  4. Pull the oil cover release inside the cabin. Remove the plastic trim surrounding the oil cap, which is only secured by push clips. While not totally necessary, it may help to temporarily remove the oil cap for extra clearance.

  5. On the passenger side of the car, carefully pop off the two cosmetic plastic covers, which are only secured by grommets and push clips.

  6. Using the ⅜” socket wrench with 13mm socket and extension, remove the two large bolts securing the duckbill. Slide the duckbill rearward to remove.

  7. Using the ¼” socket wrench with T25 socket, remove the six screws securing the engine cover to the body. There’s an electrical connector underneath, which must be disconnected before this cover can be fully removed.

  8. Pull upward to disengage the cover from the push clips, then lift the engine cover slightly, to avoid tugging on the electrical connector. On the connector, slide the red tab outward to unlock, then disconnect.

  9. Remove the engine cover by sliding forward, to avoid scratching the risers.

  10. With the risers fully exposed, note the position of the two mounting tabs, as they’ll be transferred to the RSNV bases. The tab with threads is for one of the six screws removed in step 7, while the tab with a hole interfaces with a push clip connector on the engine cover.

  11. Using the ⅜” socket wrench with 13mm socket and extension, remove the three bolts securing each riser to the body. A microfiber towel is helpful to avoid scratching the paint when removing the horizontal bolts. There may be some adhesive between the riser and body, which should be easy to work loose. After removal, clean the area below the riser of any dirt or debris.

  12. Using the ¼” socket wrench with 8mm attachment, remove the bolts and washers securing the mounting tabs to the risers. It’s best to remove these tabs one-by-one and transfer over to the RSNV base, to ensure they’re re-installed in the same orientation.

  13. Depending on your desired installation, use the six included T30 screws to install either the wing delete caps, or the RSNV wing risers onto the bases. These screws may have blue loctite pre-applied, but if not, it’s recommended to apply some to the threads. Torque these screws to 6 N-m.

  14. Time to re-assemble! First, attach both risers to the body using the three 13mm bolts. It’s recommended to apply some blue loctite to the threads, and torque to 12 N-m.  

  15. Re-install the engine cover, not forgetting to first re-connect the electrical connector. To avoid scratching the risers, it’s best to slide the cover in from front to back, and temporarily hang microfiber towels over either side of the cover. Note the push clips on the engine cover, which must be aligned with the holes in the mounting tabs on the risers. 

  16. Re-install the six T25 screws securing the engine cover.

  17. Slide the duckbill forward to re-install, noting the tongues on the duckbill which align with the grooves in the bumper.

  18. Re-install the 13mm bolts securing the duckbill. The washer may hang up on the plastic trim as you’re installing the bolts- don’t worry about it, keep tightening until the washer slips past the plastic trim, and is fully flush with the body.

  19. Re-install the cosmetic plastic covers on both sides, ensuring the push pins are aligned.

  20. Re-install the wing (if applicable), ensuring the bolt with the shoulder is in the rear, and the front bolt is in the appropriate position for the desired angle of attack.
    • Lowest position: low downforce, low drag. Ideal for top speed.
    • Middle position: medium downforce, medium drag.
    • Highest position: high downforce, high drag. Ideal for cornering grip.
