REPAIR PROCEDURE

  1. Remove the headliner by referring to the electronic service manual.

NOTE: Make sure you do the battery terminal disconnection procedure after moving the front seats.

Do not disconnect the roof wire harness from the driver’s dash area; once the headliner is lowered, detach the roof wire harness from the headliner by carefully peeling back just enough tape to remove the harness.

NOTE:

  • Do not remove all of the tape; it will be reused.
  • Make sure the roof wire harness is out of the way so that it does not get tangled with the headliner when you remove it from the vehicle.
  • Leave the AM/FM antenna attached to the headliner.
