With the towbars and their instrucion manuals, you are more likely to find a hand with a pin. This will tell you that you have to draw something in pencil, which will be the case especially if you need to make small changes to the bumper, for example.Montageanleitung MVG Stift

In connection with cutouts on the bumper, you will also find a deburrer in the installation instructions, with which you must then deburr the cutout as cleanly as possible. Otherwise, the risk of injury from small chips is high. Also, the file is important in this context and often has to be used in cutouts on the bumper.Montageanleitung MVG Entgrater und Feile

This pictogram indicates that you should work in pairs, for example when removing the rear apron. This is much easier for two, with fewer accidents happening at the same time.

The wrench with screw and the drill show you that you have to tighten something or use the drill to drill holes. The spatula is used whenever you need to remove the underbody protection.
