That baby isn't going anywhere. It is held in by compression against the original with about 10 screws.
Manufacturer says it takes about an hour. HA ! After about 1.5 hours I gave up, called and explained it didn't fit and wanted to return. THEN they give you the real instructions. Just dry fitting it, it looks to be too big for the opening. The top edge has to be pressured upward in order to slide the bottom into place.
You have to pressure the original forward and hold in place with pieces of 2x4. If have large forearms, look for a little helper. There isn't a whole lot of room behind the grills to work the nuts on the compression screws. 2nd time around it took about 1.5 hours. Also, it really helps to have a thumb socket to turn the nuts. It's real difficult keeping a small wrench on those nuts.

I got my 2010 camaro 20 inch new takeoff wheels and tires and they fit and look great on my 2010 Nox. Tried them then put up for winter so no pictures. The wheels sensors are the same GM part #. They would really dress you up especially with that grill. Got mine off ebay for 700 plus shipping.

Does anyone know if the springs from a Equinox Sport will fit on a 2005 fwd using the 2005 front struts and stock rear shocks?

How's the ride on those 20's? I've driven 18's and 19's and the ride is a little harder than the 17" stock Michelins.
By the way, those 20's will screw up the recorded vehicle mileage since one full rotation will be longer than the smaller wheel. The recorded mileage will be less than actual. Just keep that in mind for your service records..
