Step 01

This matches the designations printed under the Rear Exhaust Sections:

Push the Right Rear Exhaust Small Cover (R1) onto the outside part of the Right Rear Exhaust Section. These do not require screws:

Repeat this step for the Left Rear Exhaust Small Cover (L1) on the end of the Left Rear Exhaust Section:

The final result should look like this:

Step 02

This is just like the previous step. But this time, press the respective Rear Exhaust Big Covers onto the inner parts of the Rear Exhaust Sections:

The larger exhaust covers should be to the inside, like this:

Step 03

Slot the end of the Left Rear Exhaust Section into the Rear Exhaust Middle Section as shown, then secure with one (1) GP screw:

Step 04

Slot the end of the Right Rear Exhaust Section into the Rear Exhaust Middle Section as shown, then secure with one (1) GP screw:

Thoughts


The Rear Exhaust Holder was not used in this issue and will be installed with Pack 31, so keep it safe for now. Also, keep any extra screws as they will be used in later assembly steps. Everything is plastic in this pack.
