Slide down and hold the lock button inside the compartment to unlatch the front cover.

Separate the front cover starting from the bottom right corner with the visor facing you. Carefully pull out the front cover until it detaches from the visor.
Place the original front cover inside the External Tracking Faceplate box for safekeeping.
Insert the tabs on the front cover into the slots on the visor. Press the right side of the front cover first, and then press the left side of the front cover.

With the front cover attached to the visor, press the center of the front cover.

Make sure to minimize the gap between the front cover and the visor, and that all tabs are fully locked into place.
