First order your new valance from gm.

Tools needed:
small screwdriver
7mm socket and ratchet or wrench

First remove the four screws on each side of the valance.



Second use a small screwdriver to remove the 4 clips on bottom of the valance


Third use a small screwdriver to carefully insert just below the bumper and the top of the valance and "pop" the clips off the top of the valance. Then the valance is removed.
Half way done.


Fourth remove the small clips off the old valance and place them on the new valance. The three small holes need clips not the big hole.


Dont forget the one on side.

Fifth Insert the clips on top of the valance into the bumper and hit it with your hand to make sure the clips are in all the way. Then insert the 4 screws on each side and the bottom clips.



Now your done. :D just need to get the dual exhaust installed.

your link doesnt work and Im not familiar with that business.

If you wish to use them you may want to call them with the part number.
Its a GM part.....soooooooo try your dealership parts counter or I gave you
another site where you would just drop in the number and buy it in my last post
(www.gmpartsdirect.com).

and it fits perfect even tho its gtp
I have it on my 2005 and they didnt make a GTP in 2005. ;)
Pix of my car are around the site somewhere... lol

It actually fits most of the G6's....unless you have an 09.5 model or
the GXP back fascia.

BTW- this is a How To Thread.

Yes ... thanks for instructions ... did mine today
Technicly is was easy...
However
Physicly it was a challenge ... my neck is hurting big time ... lots of contorting and awkward positions ...

My suggestion ... use a lift or ramps ... its no fun doing it lying on the ground
