Hatch removal...

So... how does the hatch come off one of these things? Looks like the headliner has to come down to get to bolts that hold it on?

Thoughts?

I think you can just pull the pins on the hinges. They have a circlip on each side, but pop those off, and the hinge pins should come out.

^ What he said! The hardest part is pulling all the wiring up from the driver side of the car. The disconnects for the harness are down by where a cd changer would be located.

ya. you need to pull the headliner a little on the drivers side to get the harness out, but other than that, it's pretty straightforward. pull the wiring harness, pull the hinge pins, pull the struts, and pull it off.

So, I'll follow up on this. Here's what I did.

I decided that I didn't want to deal with my headliner. I removed the wiring from the "new" hatch while getting it ready for installation. While my hatch was still fully attached to the car, I labeled all the ends of the wiring harness before pulling them out of the hatch through the hold on the drivers side.

Pulled the pins and took the hatch off as normal, then set the new one on and put the pins back in as well as the struts. With it attached and holding itself up I ran the wiring harness back through the hole in the hatch and plugged everything back in. From then on it's normal parts swapping (rear wiper motor, decor panel, etc etc).

Really heavy. You will need at least two people for this.

So, I just swapped a 'new' hatch on my 96.

In my haste I didn't label all the wiring. I've got one extra connector...green plug on the passenger's side. Don't recall where that went and I don't see anything obvious.
