Interior Trim Parts Questions

I just scored a set of D90 SW interior trim panels. I have two part related questions. Take a look the images below.

1. My side trim panel is missing one of these glued in metal pieces. As far as I know they can't be ordered separately. Does anyone happen to have a spare from a retired trim?

2. What is this electronic part that is installed on one of the side panels? Is it a motion or glass sensor for the alarm? Can I get it wired up to function? There seems to two sensors on the front and a plug on the back.

#2 is an ultrasonic sensor for the stock alarm on some models. Probably not going to be easy to wire it up to anything else.

It's also probably not worth the effort. Most of those I have ever had in cars have been a false alarm nightmare.

Great idea but then I would have to also drill into the tub to make it fit. Not sure If I want to go that route.

I was envisioning a socket or two replacing the sensors coming out the side. then again, I don't have a sense of the size of the thing.

Aha! That could work. I thought you were talking about the missing metal piece. The sonic sensor pops right out. I could make a plate to fit but its located at the top of the trim near the roof so that wouldn't really be a convenient location for an 12v plug. Good to keep in mind though because I'm thinking about adding a fridge at some point.

I would check with Justin at Lucky8. I bet he has some old trim pieces sitting around. Or ebayUK, you could buy the trim and have them pull the spacers and just send those to you

I'll check with Justin. eBay is not a feasible option as I don't feel like paying $400 for a metal insert.

Find a metal pipe with similar OD/ID, cut it and have it yellow zinc plated.

I expect nothing less in terms of advice from a MacGyver!



Actually this is the most plausible route if I don't find one soon.

Seriously, I think the correct sized spacer in nylon or metal epoxied to a fat washer would do the trick.

I know but I have an unfortunate obsession with trying to keep things somewhat original.

These metal spacers are are to allow the tightening of the bolts that fasten the jump seat backs to the side walls. Are you putting in the jump seats? I sold my seats years ago. I'd rather have the cargo space & better visibility off the right hand side (blind spot).

For a long while I had a removable rack of 2 seats on the left side, then I sold the set of four & bought a flop down seat from RN and drilled it to mate up with the seat base "fasten-downs" I installed on the seat bench.

I also took the spare tire off the rear for better rear visibility too and moved the 3rd brake light up, centered in the area when the washer jet is located & moved the jet about 3" the the side. I actually replaced it with an LED lamp from "Truck-Lites" (semi-trailer lamp). My spare sets in the garage unless I go on a trip, and then it goes on the roof rack (why pack around 80 lbs I rarely use).

Dennis,

I'm not putting in Jump seats. I'm installing the trim then Mantec internal window guards over them.

I thought those holes with metal inserts were to fasten the trim to the body using fir-tree clips? If not, what are the fir tree clips for then? Looking at the parts in the attached picture, which parts do i really need? I have the lower bracket in my truck already but not the upper.

OK, just to be sure we're on the same page. I have a '97 & the factory NAS parts book for the '97 (& fiche too). I'm looking on Fiche 5 and page D7. I think the Fir tree clips you are referring to is item 7 in your post (8 in my book) ?? They clip the window trim onto the area where the roof & side panels join each other. Those clips in my book are part # mwc6203

The yellow zinc metal sleeves (as far as I see) aren't even listed. I have 5 of them per side, the front most 2 being about 4" apart and the remainder are approx. evenly spaced towards the back of the vehicle. They are located below the window in a horizontal line. The seat back Bracket (AWR4613 {fiche 5 pg F15}) bolts screw into item 19 (in my '97 book), though it's not clear from the fiche where item 19 is located. Item 19 is a rectangular piece of flat metal with a nut adjoined to it (looks to be 3/4" tall X 1-1/2" long. These are not show on your post (probably a 1995 part book).

No because his aren't window guards, they are screens.

Dennis.

I have a NAS 95 D90 and I am looking at the NAS Parts Manual (97), an 87 onwards manual and the attached picture which I found on the internet. The first two shows trim where the set belt roller is inside the trim. The attached picture shows it sitting outside of it and thats the kind of trim I bought. The trim only changed significantly in 07 right so I'm hoping this trim will fit? I don't know from what year the trim is. I can post pictures. The NAS manual shows the flat bracket you're talking about. Does that go into zinc sleeves to secure the trim?
