How to Install a EGR Superguard Bug Shield on a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Series


Today on this 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Series HD, we are going to be installing EGR bug shield part number 301401. When installing our bug shield, the first thing we need to do is go ahead and open up the hood. The bug shield is going to attach to the underside of the hood, using the existing holes. If you look here at the rear side and follow along the edge, you can see we have 5 existing holes here that we are going to use as our attaching points to our bug shield. With the existing holes located in the hood we can go ahead and start installing our bug shield. :32

We are going to take the screw plugs that are provided with the installation kit and those into the existing holes into the hood. You can see on the one side of the screw plug has a boss head, and that is actually the side that is going to attach to the bug shield. The other side has a compression fit that is going to go in the existing hole. We want to one of these into each existing hole. We can next take our bug shield and start ing it onto the hood. If you look at the back side of the bug shield, you can see we have slots here that are going to go over the boss heads of the screw plugs that we ed into the hood. 1:09

If you look right above those you have some more slots here. These are going to seat over the clips that are holding the decorative strip over the hood. From there you want to take one of the Phillips head screws, along with the flat washers that are provided with the kit, and it into the threaded holes on the screw plugs. You want to make sure the boss head of the screw plug is fully ed in the slotted hole here, because otherwise, when you go to tighten it down the screw plug will want to rotate and the bug shield will not tighten down onto it. I am going to hand tighten this one until we have all the fasteners in place. We want to repeat that for all five of the fasteners. Then we can check our alignment and see that the bug shield is centered properly on the vehicle. With all the Phillips head screws in place and hand tightened down, I am going to go through now and make my final adjustment. Again, you can see with the holes being slotted, we have some side to side adjustments we can make here. This is going to ensure that we have our bug shield as centered on the vehicle as possible. A couple indicators on the hood that we can use to ensure it was centered, you can see on the bug shield itself right here, that we have an indicator that will tell you where the center of the bug shield is. If you lower the hood down, you can measure from the edge of the hood, to the edge of the bug shield on each side to ensure its centered that way as well. It looks like we are pretty well centered there. 2:39

With that, we can tighten our screws down the rest of the way. You want to make sure you do not over tighten these because they will strip out. With those tightened down, our installation will be complete. You can see now with the hood closed and the bug shield fully installed, you can see how the curves of the bug shield match up perfectly with the contours of the body lines. That will conclude the installation of EGR bug shield part number 301401 on this 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Series HD.
