REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
The interior trim panels are either held on with screws (vehicles with base trim option) or with plastic push pins, which snap into holes in the metal body panels behind the trim panels (vehicles with custom trim option).
- Remove any peripheral trim pieces covering the edges of the trim panel to be removed.
- Before removing the trim panel, locate all retaining screws (these usually are not hidden from view).
- Remove all of the trim panel retaining screws.
- Gently pull the trim panel from the body panel. If the trim panel resists being removed, there may be trim panel retaining push pins.
- Use a wooden stick or trim tool to gently pry the trim panel away from the body panel at each push pin.
Do not pull on the trim panel itself to pry the push pins out of their retaining holes.
- Pull the trim panel away from the body, then check the back of the trim panel for any wiring or other components which may still be attached to the trim panel.
- Remove the trim panel from the vehicle.
- Attach any wiring or other components detached during removal.
- Position the trim panel onto the body panel so that the push pins and body retaining holes align.
- Push the trim panel in until the push pins snap in place.
- Install any retaining screws, then install any trim pieces.
