sun roof


if you're talking about the felt seal it's really easy.

open the roof. look at the felt and you will notice a rail groove. that is what holds the felt in place. you'll also notice that there are small phillips head screws every 4 or 5 inches. back these out and you can pull the felt up. to install the new just slip it under the rail's lip and insert the screws.

i don't recall exactly but some roofs had the felt in sections maybe 4 and some perhaps only 2. you really shouldn't have much problems with this job. you might also lube your roof's rails so the roof motor won't have to work so hard.

good luck!
Thanks Much!

The rear rubber has a grove that fits into a thin rail behind the roof, but I can't figure out how to get it in? Whats the trick? someone must know.
