REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 and 2
- Open the rear gate.
- For the pick-up, have an assistant support the gate while you remove the gate hinge stay attaching bolts, then remove the rear gate from the truck.
- For the Pathfinder, prop the gate open, mark the bolts by scribing around them, then disconnect the prop struts. Have an assistant support the gate, then remove the nuts and lift the gate from the vehicle.
- Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Adjust the rear gate for proper alignment.
See Figures 3 and 4
The rear gate may be adjusted by loosening the hinge attaching bolts and moving the gate as required. The height may be adjusted by adding or removing shims at the rear gate hinge.
