“In this issue, the oil tank assembly is fixed onto the front right wheel arch.”

This stage will be very similar to the work we did on the Front Left Wheel Arch in Stage 12.



Materials: The Front Right Wheel Arch and Support are metal, and the other parts are plastic.

Front Right Wheel Arch

Step 1

Fit the two pins of the Front Right Wheel Arch Support into the matching holes at this location on the bottom of the Front Right Wheel Arch:

Step 2

Secure the Arch Support to the Wheel Arch from the other side with two (2) AM screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 3

Like the Windshield Washer Fluid Tank in the previous stage, fit the Oil Tank Bottom onto the post at this location on the Front Right Wheel Arch, then fit the Oil Tank over it and orientate it as shown.

On a real Pontiac, I believe this is actually the radiator coolant overflow tank. Note how the two rounded corners at the rear of the Oil Tank fit around the nearby screw heads (arrows below). 

Step 4

Secure the Oil Tank and Oil Tank Bottom to the Front Right Wheel Arch from below with one (1) CP screw:

Step 5

Push the D-shaped pin of the Oil Tank Cap into the matching hole on top of the Oil Tank, as shown:


We won’t finish assembling and mounting this Front Right Wheel Arch until the next month’s parts arrive, so keep it safe for now.
