Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

You have to remove the center rail cover, (on the outside) and the tail light assembly to release the cable from the center rail as well as the front pulley.

If you accept my additional service request for your email address, you can give me your email in a private info box and I'll send you the instructions in a PDF file, the file is rather large.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it.

I do not have access to your email address,

Ok thanks.
How can you take the center rail cover if the door doesnt open. You can take the back off no problem . What about the front? Is it held in with clips that you can easily slip it out or is it bolted in like the back of the coverthanks
