  • Remove the roof trim (it is secured by eight clips). First grasp the inside using the finger tips of one hand and pull it out towards the edge of the roof. Then, use the other hand to carefully pry up the outer side using a plastic weatherstrip tool. Unhook the roof edge trim from the clips.


    Note!

    The roof trim is securely installed, therefore force is required to remove it. If necessary, lubricate the tip of the weatherstrip tool to facilitate removing the rubber strip. Use rubber lubricant, P/N 1161150-6. Do not damage the roof trim strip or painted surfaces.

  • Measure the front edge of the right-hand roof trim for cutting as illustrated. Measure from the ends (1) of the two profiles on the inside of the roof trim

  • Mark the same dimensions on top of the two profiles and at the sides so that the cut on the top of the roof trim can be marked.

  • Carefully mark the top of the roof trim where it will be cut

  • Pull off the rubber strip between the markings on both sides of the roof trim strip so that the rubber strips can be cut off
