How to access rear shock top nuts on 997 cab?

Recommended Posts

How do you obtain access to the rear shock top nuts from inside the cab? I see there is a cover panel behnd rear seats, and once the panel is removed access to the top nuts are probably right under it- but I am not sure how to take off the interior cover panel without damaging something.

Any tips / pointers would be appreciated!

n/m - found the answer:

with the top closed, open the top a bit so that the rear piece (wing/cover) goes up, then there are two cables attached to the roof that you can access. At the bottom of the cables they will pop off the mount, thus releasing the top so that you can fold it forward. Then pry out the 4 plastic carpet retainer push-pins and work the bottom cloth cover back/up/out and there are the bolts. SUPER EZ!!
