I’m finishing up the VCM install and I have one questions as the color with crayon Instruction Manual sucks; what does this push pin connect to? If makes me think I’m missing a bracket as there is nothing for this center push pin to connect to.

I was just fixing mine... the previous owner really shorted out on the process.

From others who have done it apparently there is nothing that that clips into. Just push the push pin in there for a complete and move on. Apparently the VE cars have clips there so VCM put a hole there. Our cars only have the mounting brackets on the sides.

Unused on ours....This link, around 12 minutes shows what it would clip into.

My suggestion - throw an extra push pin in it

It’s too bad the VF didn’t have the center bracket as it would have been even more secure.

The Harrop unit on mine comes with a Centre bracket and makes the center hole useable.

What does the center bracket look like? Where does it connect to the front bumper/grille?

The VCM unit appears to not use the center hole

Per a random G8 thread - "Drain in the bottom before the filter......" I didn't install it on mine...

These align the brackets - per the video above around 6:30
