How to Install the WeatherTech Easy-On Stone and Bug Shield Deflector on a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado


Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab, we're going to be installing the Weather Tech easy on stone and bug shield deflector. Part number WT50258. This Weather Tech bug shield is specifically designed to fit your 2015 and up Chevrolet Colorado.It's designed to protect your Colorado's hood from flying debris and bugs, which later lead to paint chips and bug stains. How it works is, it's going to redirect air flow up and around your Colorado, preventing impacts to your hood or windshield. It's scratch resistant, it's virtually indestructible and it will absorb impacts for large rocks.Not only is it going to protect your Colorado, but it's going to add style to your ride. It attaches underneath your hood with the included self tapping screws, so you can rest assure, it's not going to fly off during your travels.Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed.

We've got some pre-assembly to do on our bug shield, before we move onto our Colorado. Let's go ahead and get started.We're going to be working with the two furthest most holes out on the end. We'll take one of our black clips, and we're going to be installing it in this direction. We'll need a black screw and a black washer. Put that on, once we line it up, it will be coming down through the top here.

Get it started. Then to finish it off, we'll need a Phillips head screwdriver. Once we get it nice and tight, we can repeat the same process on the other side.Once both black clips are installed, we can open up our hood on our Colorado. Now let's take our bug shield and put it in the position. What we want to do, is we want to center the two tabs here up with the hood latch.Once we've got our bug shield where we want, we can then mark out where our black clips are on the actual hood.

Now it doesn't need to be a large mark. This is just going to give us the position of where we need to put our protective film, so our clips do not scratch our hood. You can see I've already got a small mark on the inside, you'll want to do that same for the other side.We'll need to take our included alcohol swabs and clean the areas where each tab is. Each tab has some adhesive underneath of it, that way when we pull the paper, it will then be able to stick to the underside of the hood.Now for this specific tab, when we actually install it permanently, we will pull down on that weather seal and the tab will go underneath. That's going to be the same for this one down here.

So what we'll do is, we'll just take the alcohol swab, and just clean up that area on each tab.With everything cleaned, we can now remove the bug shield once more. Once we have it marked out, we need to remove a small bead of caulk underneath our hood here, that way the clip can easily slide in place. You can just take a razor blade, and cut out the area there. You don't need to cut out too much, just where your mark was.Now we can take our protective film, place it over the spot where we cut it out. We can repeat that process on the other side, and then pull off the adhesive paper, and permanently put it into position. We'll need to remember to put those tabs underneath the weather stripping here on each side. Just push it in place. When we get to our clips, we'll want to be sure and push those on. You'll have to apply a little bit of pressure, but they should just clip right in place. Just like that.Now we can take our remaining hardware, and put it in place. We'll take the plastic washer and the self tapping screw. We're going to go up into the underside of our hood. Then we can repeat the same process on down.With the bug shield installed, we can close our hood and see how it looks.The last step is to install our bump on's. All these are really going to do, is prevent the bug shield from coming in contact with our Colorado as we're driving on the road. We can spread these out evenly along the bug shield. You can go along, test out where it may come in contact, and then we can place our bump on's on the Colorado. Just like that. As you can see, rather than coming in contact with the hood, it's just going to come in contact with the bump on.Perfect.And that's going to complete our installation of the Weather Tech easy on stone and bug shield deflector. Part number WT50258, on our 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab.
