REPAIR PROCEDURE

1. With the appropriate trim tool, release the tabs of the sunvisor cap from the bracket, then remove the sunvisor cap.

 

2. Remove both sunvisors:

  •  Remove the sunvisor from the holder.
  • Remove the TORX screws with a TORX T25 bit.

 

3. Push the hook with a flat-tip screwdriver, and turn the holder 90 degrees, then pull it out.

 

4. Remove the front individual map light assembly:

  • Remove the lenses.
  • Remove the bolts.
  • If equipped, release the four tabs, then pull out the navigation microphone.
  • Disconnect the front individual map light connector. If equipped, disconnect the navigation microphone connector.

 

5. Lower the grab handle, then remove the caps with the push pin/grab rail cap pliers.

 

6. Pinch the clips to release the hooks, then remove the grab handle.

 

7. Pinch the hooks on the clips with a pair of pliers, and pull out the clips.

 

8. Pull the front door opening seal away from the A-pillar trim on both sides.

 

9. Hit the upper clip in the A-pillar trim with a rubber mallet. The clip is under the “SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAG” mark. Hitting the clip breaks the projections on the pin and pushes it into the grommet on the body.

NOTE: The upper clip must be replaced with a new one when the A-pillar trim is reinstalled.

 

10. Pull back on the top of the A-pillar trim by hand to remove the upper clip from the body.

13. Cut four pieces of urethane foam, 25 mm x 10 mm.

 

14. On the top of the headliner, attach two pieces of urethane foam near each sunvisor bracket opening as shown.

 

15. Reinstall the front portion of the headliner.

 

16. Reinstall both A-pillar trim with new clips.

 

17. Reinstall both grab handles, the frontmap light, and both sunvisors.
