Floor Mats



See Figure 1

The floor mats are a very handy item to have for your vehicle. They can be helpful at keeping the carpet in good condition. The mats must be installed in your vehicle with no folds or rolls. They must be inserted flat as not to get caught up under the gas or brake pedal. Position the mat 1 inch (25mm) away from the pedals on the driver's side. Some models have a pin where the driver's mat hooks onto to keep it from moving while driving. The other mats can be positioned in their appropriate areas.
