I know how to take out the back seat, the rear covers around the C pillar with no problems, the centre mounted stop light seems to be the only thing keeping the rear shelf in.... How do I separate the two??? The stop light seems to stuck to the back glass with an adhesive but, the bottom end seems to be able to separate somehow.....

can anyone help me with this???

Thank you for all your help.

On the sides of the light there are two tabs to get half of it off to replace the bulb. The rest just slides out after you depress the holding tab you should be able to remove the red part.

The base I believe is screwed into the bottom.

I am not sure though, but on my car it is like this, but I have not attempted to remove the base of it.

I did have a friend who just drilled a hole big enough to get some tin snips in it, then he cut out the hole for my sub port in a few seconds by hand. Was pretty simple and I came up with this elaborate scheme to use what I had to make my port extend into the cabin, which was done with some cardboard tubing, and all. To get it out is another story. hehehe its fairly permanent without some dismantling.

I'm putting in 5 1/4" under the shelf (with only the cover plates above the shelf) which will be getting 40 watts rms from my 4 channel kicker. I'm also installing speaker baffles under the shelf aswell. Original baffles are very high quality plastic but, are too small for the 5 1/4"s...

I've cut two huge holes in the cover for the first aid kit, I then covered them (barely) with the original covers for the rear speakers. I looks great!!!! since the original covers match the interior perfectly and screwed into the shelf material with no problems......

How can I get the rear shelf out?????? The third brake light sucks!!!! How do I separate the two??????
Please help me!!!!!!!
