    I will be removing the headlining soon , to do an aerial change ,and a headliner colour change ,the only problem I am having is the large clip at the rear centre of the headliner,
    In Elsawin it just shows what needs to be done to the clip ,squeeze the two wings on the clip, GREAT !!!!!!!!! how do I squeeze the wings ????? its behind the steel in the roof .
    Does anybody have any advice to offer on this , I am trying to remove the liner without any damage, so I can sell it on, to offset the cost of the new one .

    Hi I need to remove rear passenger pillar in order to run reverse cam cable. Anybody got any pics I could follow or is this a mission impossible. I've already striped out the rear boot panels.

    I didn't take mine out, just tucked the cable behind the panel edge. You can do the same on the bottom edge of the roof lining. You do need to remove the A pillar cover, the end plate of the dash and the glove box then you can feed the cable into the space behind the Head Unit. Use a few cable ties behind the glovebox or it will drop down over time.

    Is it this one one. And where does it go in the tail gate before the reverse light power. Or before the reverse detect wire. Back of the head unit
