Installation

  1. NOTE: These steps are only necessary when installing a new component.

    NOTE: When transferring the headliner harness to a new headliner note the location of each electrical connector during removal and maintain those locations when transferring the harness. If equipped with noise cancellation the microphone connectors are the same but are not interchangeable and must maintain their original locations for the system to operate correctly.

    NOTE: Obtain the specified adhesive commercially. Depending on the headliner and optional wiring harness(es), the purchase of multiple tubes is suggested.

    1. Using tape, mark the wire at the exit points for proper length from headliner-to-body / roof connectors.
    1. Carefully remove the wiring harness from the original headliner.
    1. Using a marking tool, mark the new headliner with the routing and exit points of the wiring harness from the original headliner.
    1. NOTICE: Make sure not to damage the wiring harness when cutting the excess adhesive from the wiring harness.

      Cut and remove any excess adhesive from the wiring harness.
    1. Position the wiring harness onto the new headliner, making sure the harness has enough length to be connected to the body / roof connectors at the tape location(s) applied earlier. Apply tape to temporarily hold the wiring harness in position on the headliner.
    1. Apply the adhesive in the same location as the factory installed adhesive along the full length of the wiring harness-to-headliner to avoid any NVH concern(s).
