    any closer pics? its different to that one, the bits you screw down are different shapes if you get me and were u screw in on the drivers side is little vents under it so theres nothing for the screws to go into

    One posted above looks like gen. Irsmcher extension. Depending on the copy you got will depend on your fixings. Normally just drill and screw into scuttle panel. Just becareful not drilling through the Washer jets

    Have you got any pics of the panel your trying to fit, there are some good copies and most fix exactly the same as the genuine extension

    you generally drill a 6-8mm holes through the lip an into the scuttle tray then pop some plastic push rivets through to hold it all together

    the original Irmscher fitting instructions can be found on here in one of the how to or technical sections
