159 boot lid net - installation advice required

I'm looking for some installation advice for the under boot lid net.

I have a net, but no fitting instructions. The net came with 3 different fixings:
2 plastic screw-in
4 short bolts with steel nuts and
2 long bolts with expanding rubber nuts (rubber rawlnut type)

I am guessing the 2 screw-in type hold the elasticated opening part of the net at the top, the 4 steel nuts go along the bottom and the 2 with rubber nuts to the side. I'm concerned that if I put the 4 steel nuts along the bottom they will rub or rattle against the inside of the boot lid even though there is a cut out in the lids inner skin. Any info on how to install the net or feedback from an installation would be most welcome.

Thanks.

I did install a long time ago and to be honest I can't remember exactly what problems I encountered, but I did drill 4 holes and used rivnuts along the bottom of the net, the larger self taping plastic ones each side and the 2 with rubber nuts along the elasticated top. Sorry I can't be precise but that's as much as I can remember after 2 1/2 years.

Good luck.

I'd resist stowing anything on the boot lid with those flimsy gas struts.

Did they not do an under parcel shelf one too?

I believe the net that fits to the 159 boot lid is Part No: 50903171.
Best to check with dealer.
