time of installation. Blocking the holes of the
cooling fan will cease to allow the temperature
to be lowered and will cause breakdown.
• When installing to the car, the unit should be
securely fastened at a location that will not
interfere with driving.
• When making a hole in the chassis, check that
the gas tank, break pipe, wire harness, or
other part is not located on the other side, and
be careful not to cause scratches.
• When attaching the mounting fittings 2 to the
DAB hideaway unit, use only the supplied
mounting screws 3 (M5 x 6 mm). Use of
