Installing lower air ducts eventuri help!!!

Can't seem to figure out how to reinstall these damn lower ducts back into place after the scoop install. Any help? Seems impossible to do from above the car.

It's a little trickY BUT there are a notch on back of air duck that you have to either line up perfectly or getting snugged enough where it won't move. Not the best design but you will get it. Get a very bright to see. Only way to do it is from top as it has to be SLID DOWN into notch

A tip, slide your hand into the air duct in front bumper and it will help push it in

If your arms are long enough you can push from top and bottom

Thanks guys. I got it. What I did was force squeeze my hand in between the wheel well(soft plastic) and between the duct and I pushed the duct until it clicked. Was a ***** to do but got it done. Haha
