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?

Leave the cage in. Just remove the plastic trim around back windows

i pulled all the plastic trim also, but there are two stubborn bits that curve in close to the cage. had to wrestle them a bit on the way out, so assumed it wouldn't go back in easily without marking the nice new headliner...

Nah it's ok. You will have to bend the new headliner but it won't hurt it.
