...so now how do I get the rest of the rear deck off?


And how the heck do you get the clips for the rear pillars on and off???

This one just popped off from pulling too hard, but I can't see for the life of me how to get it back on.

you need to pull those plastic push in things out, and then attach them to the pillar trim, then push back in...

and take out the plastic push in things on the front of the rear deck, and it will come right off

Have you done this before, or are you just guessing?

I suppose the tar paper isn't reusable, eh? Do I need to get more from a parts store?
