Rear parcelshelf replacement

Hi everyone

When i purchased my 1980 SS2 two ugly speakers fitted in rear parcel shelf .Ive purchased a second hand one same colour and need to fit cant find any description to follow. Is it a case of rear seat removal, also any special tools required apart from spanners and socket set thanks

The bottom seat pulls up to be removed. The upright cushion has a screw in the lower corner and they have to be removed. Open the boot and you will see 2 bolts protruding thru the metal behind the seat. These have to be removed as well. Do not drop these because they will fall down under the gas tank. Once the upright seat is un-fastened it can be removed. There is a tendency for leather on leather surfaces to stick over a period of time. Use a plastic scraper or similar device to separate accordingly. You may encounter this on the top part of the seat back where it meets the leater panels on the sides.

Hi Hornets7


It's covered in section S8 of the Series 2 workshop manual under the heading "Rear Window - To Remove". Obviously you will probably not have to go through all the steps involved, but as part of the procedure the rear parcel shelf has to be removed, which is documented.



My car is a 74 "series 1" so can't offer any more help than that.

I posted at the same time as Wraithman, hence the duplication.

Hi,


Just one other thing to be mindful of is the heated rear screen wiring. Make sure you do not disturb it as where the wiring is soldered onto the edge of the glass heater element it gets quite corroded and can easily be pulled away.


It should be well secured as trapped under the rubber and then runs under the rear parcel shelf into the boot above the fuel tank but just be careful not to pull at it anywhere near the glass screen.


Those speakers sure look YUCK but also looks like you may have to do something with the edge finisher as it looks modified for the speakers



All the best


Steve

Check a few plugs if sooty. Does it blow smoke upon startup?
