Roll-cage removal in 97 SW
apologies if this has already been asked, i couldn't find it...
i'm removing the headliner in my SW to get re-covered... i read on another thread that it's easier if you remove the roll-cage.
i unbolted all of the roll-cage i could get too and it came pretty loose, but it felt like i wasn't able to move the main/vertical sections out of the way unless i took out the bottom-V section. i was able to un-bolt the bottom-V enough to get a lot of play in the main section, but it appears that i'd have to take the console out to pull out the bottom section entirely.
i managed to get enough play to get my headliners out, but it feels like it would be a nightmare on re-install, so i want to try and fully remove the cage next time...
so my question is... do i have to remove the console, or is there some trick to getting the main section out the the bottom section loose? do i just need to yank on it a little harder?
