Testimonials
This site is great, i recently got my Evo X a few months ago and I've been asking for help with what parts would be good for a first time Evo owner. They got back to me right away and gave me some very good suggestions on what what I should buy. I have a long list made of all the parts i want i just can only get them like 1 at a time, I save up and buy something then just repeat. so I just wanted to write and say thanks for all the help and to tell people that this is the site they should use for Evo parts. Thank you
Adam Ridings

Install Tips: Removing Vortex Generator

Removing MR Vortex Generator : Lancer Evolution VIII

 

Published By:  Justin Hamel  (May 1st, 2005 at 9:12pm)

Product: Removing MR vortex generator

 

The only reason we did this write up is because we had to remove a stock MR vortex generator when installing a new Tyrant performance carbon fiber vortex. Tools used for this were a hair dryer, spatula, glass cleaner and paper towel. 

 

1. You will want to unclip the body trim that runs from the roof line to the bottom of the trunk. We suggest popping the trunk, and starting there and working your way up the roof line. You will need to do this on the drivers and passenger side of the EVO.

Tech Tip: Be very careful when removing these, they take a little pressure to unclip them.

   
2. Starting on the passenger side, we heated up the vortex with the hair dryer for approx. 2-3 minutes. This allows the double side tape to easily remove from the car. The longer you heat it up, the easier it is to remove. To get the peeling process started, we used a spatula to lift the vortex from the car.

Tech Tip: We did this in sections, fin to fin. Heat it up and then peel off. Once you get half way down the car, it is easily removes from there.

 

   
   
3. Using a combination of the hair dryer + elbow grease helped us remove the remaining double sided tape that was left from the old vortex.
