I do not.
I can't comment on the placement of cruise control but I imagine it would be obstructed...
The installation of the push bar and it's accompanying hardware seemed pretty simple, assuming you can manage the removal of the bumper cover. Best of luck! I think Setina includes installation instructions if I recall correctly.
the bumper cover has remarkably few fasteners. bulky, but not difficult.
Does anyone have a copy or PDF of the install instructions?
Yes, I'll scan it tomorrow and post ... unless someone else beats me to it.
Send me a PM with your email. I have scanned the instructions which are three pages, but don't see right away how to post on this thread.
Setina Instructions for PB400 Pushbar
Okay, sorry it took so long. But here is the three page instruction detail for the Setina PB400 Pushbar. I had to degrade the copy of page two since it was too large for this forums rules. PM me if you want a full set as one file or the good page two.
Thank you very much!
Turned out great and I really appreciate it
serious question, what is the purpose of a push bar on a non-LE vehicle?
It's a great place to mount additional lights, looks cool, and adds a touch of utility appearance.
...it helps fill up the parking space...aalll of it....
because we can... a not so serious answer. But besides the other stated reasons, it keeps the "park by touch" people off your grill...
westin push bar elite
Hello! I couldn't find a thread for this.
Has anyone installed the westin push bar elite on their explorer? I personally like the looks of this push bar over others on the market. I found it on carid. The description says it's for the interceptor version, but I'm curious if anyone's put it on models other than the interceptor. I just don't want to cut out holes in the plastics.
Any advice is appreciated!
One thing you must keep in mind is that if you have Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) any bull bar installation will likely interfere with it.
For those that have the Setina, did you order it from them direct? Or was it purchased through somewhere else?
I had phoned Setina initially. They gave me the full retail, but said they do not sell direct. However, they did give me colour options. I ended up purchasing through the nearest police safety supply (Dana in Miami) at lower than the Setina retail.
Did you install it yourself, or have someone else do it? I think the dealer I bought my Explorer from is a police upfitter, I might have them do it but I'm thinking they might charge an arm and a leg for it.
Thanks for the info.
I placed my order from http://www.fleetsafety.com/.
If you are comfortable removing the entire front plastic cover of the vehicle, it is an easy install. The surprising part is how few fasteners actually hold the entire front on the car. Measure carefully, do a loose install of all parts before tightening the D bracket to the steel bumper bar. Then remove the push bar, reinstall plastic and reinstall pushbar, otherwise you'll likely end up removing the plastic to make adjustments. Setina instructions are good.
can i ask if it doesn't affect the adaptive cruise control sensor?i want push bar also for my ex sports
Welcome to the Forum. :wavey:
I would think that if it is mounted in front of or very close to the radar unit that it likely will affect the Adaptive Cruise Control.
I have a 2015 Sport with adaptive cruise control. If anyone finds a bull bar/ push bar which we can mount (that doesn't effect the ACC) then please contact me as I am also on the lookout to add one.
I would write to Setina and ask that very question. I'm sure they want to sell more, and if they can modify to accommodate the demand I'm sure a redesign would be in the works.
Does it block the adaptive cruise control sensor?
