Demonstration of Minor Drilling in a Spare Tire Pan


What we will do next is tighten this down just enough to snug it to hold it in place, and then we will see where to drill or holes out using the hitch as a template. We will use the hitch as a template to drill or holes, so we will just use a drill and let the hitch do the work for us, we will punch right through this thin metal with a half-inch bit.

Now we are back inside the vehicle here, we will go ahead and apply sealant to the holes to keep exhaust fumes from coming into the cabin. We will put a simple circle around it then put the bolts through and then go back underneath and start tightening them down. All right, now we will go tighten them back up.

All right, now we will go tighten them back up.
