    Earlier today I was looking to drop 2/3 bench upright, however it seemed impossible without removing the load cover, after a tug and pull I eventually gave up. How do you remove the load cover cartridge??:banghead:

    drop the back seats then open the drivers door iirc and pull sideways out of the car. it attaches to 2 brackets fixed to the rear of the double part of the back seat. it slides sideways off these brackets

    Its a heavy old lump!

    I think it's very well designed though, how the netting extends to the roof in both positions etc, genius :)

    I never knew that! Cheers dude! haha. Mine spends most of its time just sat in the boot as I take my bike places too often. On the odd occassion I put it back on I always seem to have to remove it unexpectedly the next day. And it's a pain to remove with kids car seats in.

    Lol I dunno!

    You know how the netting/shade thing clips into the roof? Well if you drop the seat backs so the load cover is next to the back of the front seats the netting will extend double height and clip into the roof (see the clips?) - to act as a sort of lightweight cargo bulkhead.
