Fit the bracket on the back of the leading-edge support to the engine mount as show. Press the left-hand hole on the bracket into the locating pin and secure the other hole with an XW02 screw.

Align the wing and the engine mount as shown and fit the parts together so that the five holes indicated line up with the lugs on the engine mount. Fix the parts together with XW02 screws in all five holes. Align the engine mount brace with the assembly and fit over the mount as shown. Secure the engine mount brace with XW02 screws in the two holes indicated, then secure with two XW03 screws into the other two holes as indicated.

This issue/stage is now complete. Store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.
