14. Reinstall the fill plug. Torque to 12 ft-lbs (16 Nm).

15. Wipe up any residual fluid on the vehicle, and inspect for leaks. 

16. Carefully reposition the right fender and reinstall the three fender fasteners. Torque to 35 in-lbs (4 Nm).

17. Install the push rivet to secure the fender to the footrest.
