Mounting Instructions

Step 1 - Remove Upper Hood Panel.

Using a T40 Torx driver, remove the two bolts on the upper hood panel. Then remove the panel by lifting it up and towards the windshield. Once removed, set the panel aside.

Step 2 - Remove Lower Hood Panel.

Remove the T40 Torx bolt holding the lower panel in place. Remove the panel by pulling it away from the vehicle at the top of the panel, and then sliding the panel down toward the bumper. Once removed, set the panel aside.

Step 3 - Remove Fender Clips.

On the driver's side, use a plastic trim removal tool to take off the outer fender's plastic clip (circled in blue). Then remove the plastic clip (circled in red) situated on the inner fender.

Step 4 - Remove Driver-Side Fender Bolts.

Use a T40 Torx bit to remove the seven bolts (circled in red) on the outside of the driver-side fender. 

Then remove the three T40 bolts located on the inside of the fender (circled in red).

Step 5 - Loosen Speaker Panel Bolts.

Use a T40 Torx bit to loosen, but not remove, the two driver-side speaker panel bolts (circled in red).

Step 6 - Remove Driver-Side Fender.

Remove the driver-side fender by pulling it away from the body of the vehicle and working it around the door latch. Once removed, set the fender aside.

Step 7 - Remove Driver-Side Hood Panel Bolts.

Use a T40 Torx bit to remove the four bolts (circled in red) securing the hood panel to the vehicle. Then use a plastic trim removal tool to remove the remaining clip (circled in blue).

Step 8 - Remove Driver-Side Hood Panel.

Remove the driver-side hood panel by pulling it up and away from the vehicle to release the tab (indicated by the red arrow) near the A-pillar. Then pull the panel away from the vehicle. Once removed, set the panel aside.

Step 9 - Remove Grille.

Locate the two plastic tabs at the top of the grille (circled in red). Then squeeze them and pull away to remove the grille. 

Step 10 - Remove the Driver Seat Adjustment Buckles.

Begin removing the driver seat by undoing both of the adjustment buckles with the red pull tabs. 

Step 11 - Disconnect Connector Under Cup Holders.

Use a plastic trim removal tool to pry up the front of the plastic cup holder and pop it out of place. Once removed, set the cup holder aside.

Looking into the area where the cup holder was, locate the connector with blue tabs (circled in red). Reach in and disconnect it. Then feed the end that attaches to the safety harness out from under the center console and towards the driver seat. 

Step 12 - Remove Driver-Seat Safety Harness.

Feed the safety harness through the back of the driver's seat.

Step 13 - Remove the Driver's Seat.

Remove the driver's seat by pulling the release handle (circled in red) and tilting the seat forward, up, and out of the vehicle.

Step 14 - Connect Battery. 

Use a 10mm socket to connect the red wire from our harness to the positive battery terminal and the black wire to the negative battery terminal. Then tuck the relay next to the battery so it is out of the way.

Step 15 - Remove Center Console Bolts.

With a 10mm socket, remove the four bolts (circled in red) along the bottom side of the center console. 

Step 16 - Remove Driver-Side Kick Panel Bolts and Clips. 

With a 10mm socket, remove the two 10mm bolts (circled in red) on the bottom of the driver-side kick panel. 

Then use a plastic trim removal tool to remove the two clips (circled in blue).

Step 17 - Remove Shifter Trim Bolt. 

Lift up the rubber shift cover and use a T40 Torx bit to remove the bolt circled in red below. Then remove the shifter trim. 

Step 18 - Route the White Connector Lead.

With the switch disconnected from the wiring harness, route the white connector lead from the battery under the center console into the cup holder area. Then continue routing the connector down and around the shifter and toward the fire wall. 

Note: Be sure to route the connector around the shifting bracket, not through it. 

Then continue routing the lead towards the firewall and out of the hole (circled in red) at the back of the passenger side kick panel. 

Step 19 - Remove Switch Blank.

To mount the switch, use a pick tool to pop out one of the factory switch blank covers.

If you're going to use the included round toggle switch, use a pair of flush-cut pliers to trim the key slot off of the switch as shown below. 

Then use the step bit to drill a hole in the switch blank cover to about 20.5mm, or until the toggle switch fits snuggly. 

Feed the white lead of the switch through the drilled hole on the front of the switch blank. Then press the switch into place, making sure the double lines on the switch are on the top half of the switch blank cover.

Step 20 - Connect and Mount Switch.

Route the switch lead from Step 18 through the back of the switch panel where the switch blank was removed. Then connect the lead to the switch and press it into place.

Step 21 -  Route the DT Lead. 

From the battery, route the DT lead through the bottom of the center console following the same route as the switch lead in Step 18 (the path is marked by the red line below) but coming out of the driver-side kick panel. Then cross the lead behind the steering column going up towards the A-Pillar.

Route the DT lead past the A-Pillar and down behind the front grille (the path is marked by the red line below). Use zip ties to secure the wiring away from any moving parts and to clear the driver's side foot well.

Step 22 - Connect DT Lead To Splitter Harness.

Connect the DT lead routed in Step 21 to the included DT splitter harness. 

Step 23 - Bolt Roll Bar Mounts to Bumper.

Start by sliding the ring of the roll bar mount over the bumper bar. Then align the platform on top and fasten it into place with the supplied bolt, washers, and nut using a 10mm wrench and 3/16" Allen Key. 

Step 24 - Secure SS3 LED Pod Brackets.

Secure the SS3 Universal brackets to the roll bar mounts using the supplied 10mm bolts and washers. Be sure to only hand tighten them to allow for adjustment later. 

Step 25 - Reinstall Grille.

Feed the DT leads from the splitter harness in Step 22 through the front of the grille. Then reinstall the grille by guiding the tabs back into place with a plastic trim removal tool. 

Step 26 - Connect SS3 LED Pods. 

Insert the included nuts into the SS3 LED pods, making sure that the nylon rings face the inside of the pod. 

Next, plug the DT Leads into the back of the SS3 LED Pods. Then secure the SS3 pods to the universal brackets installed in Step 24 with the supplied 5/32" Allen bolts and washers. 

Step 27 - Aim the SS3 LED Pods.

Test the function of the SS3 LED Pods and aim them as desired. Tighten down the hardware with a 10mm wrench and a 5/32" Allen Key. 

Step 28 - Reassemble the RZR.

Reassemble the RZR by reversing the steps used to take it apart. Make sure to zip-tie any loose wiring to keep it away from hot or moving parts.
