Question about 2009 Honda Accord Tourer

1 Answer

Does anyone know how to remove the covers ( on the rear) of the roof rails on the Accord Tourer please?

I have pushed and pulled them in ever direction but think if I use too much force I will break the internal clips. I have tried to find a download supplement to the workshop manual as the main one doesn't cover the Tourer but have so far been unable to do so.

    The plastic curved bits at he end unclip, I used an electrical scree=wdriver so the plastic didn;t get damaged. Feel the front edge below the rail and you'll find the gap, Wiggle that a bit then put screwdriver under the main section of the curved section [outside edge] and pry off gently and slide towards the back of the car. They're fairly flexible and robust.

Hi,
Just had to do this today and also found no help on the www.
To do it I used a small electricians screwdriver as it's got a plastic coating and won't damage the plastic. Anything flat and wide will do, but cover with a cloth or tape to prevent damage.
To take off the curved sections [the ends] feel under the rail at the front edge of the plastic curved section and you'll find the join. I gave this a bit of a wiggle to free it up a bit and then went to the bottom outside edge. Put the screwdriver in there and gently pried off the plastic cover sliding it backwards when free. They're fairly flexible and robust.
Taking this off reveals two 10mm bolts [same in the front, but total of 4 in the middle section]. The plastic strips just pull off.
Top tip: Note the order you take everything off as it needs to go back in reverse order.

SOURCE: Bumper cover removal

It is a little more complicated than that. There are two nuts below the headlight assemblies in the engine compartment. You will need to remove the battery and overflow bottle to get at the one on the passenger side. Remove the turn signals in the bumper, then there are 2 or 3 bolts holding a mounting bracket behind the each of the turn signals. There are a number of bolts with washer heads and reatiners on the underside of the bumper as the previous responder indicated.

Start with the rear console. Two screws on the sides, then open the console and pry up the plate in the bottom.   Remove the screws under the plate.  Pull emergency brake lever. Remove cup holder insert. Three more screws to remove. Now the console will come out when you lift it and pull it back out of the clips. Next remove the ashtray. One screw behind the ash tray two more for the cover. Disconnect wires. the stereo is accessible.

This is a real pain, took me forever to find mine... there is a little TINY slot that you can fit a VERY small flat head screwdriver in to pop it off.

Dont worry, the plastic is durable, just try to use a precision screwdriver if you have one and basically pry it open. it really will just Pop off once you get in there

I would like to know how to change the battery in a 2008 r350 Mercedes


Try this To get to it is complicated


Move seat as far back as possible. Seat rails have covers on them - slide them forward....the left one will only slide forward, cannot be removed. Between the two seat rails you will see two little battery cover mounting nuts. Use 6 mm T-handle hex key to remove the nuts. Move seat as far forward as possible and twist rear rail covers to left and right and then pull toward rear of car. Pull back/fold floor carpet under seat from front to back (carpet is perforated so you may have to really yank the first time). There are two more battery cover mounting nuts between rear seat rails. There is a battery cover with an air vent pull it slightly to right and then lift out. There is a vent hose attached to battery on left side -- pull it out. Unfasten & remove attachment nuts on left side (low). Remove the battery attachment once those nuts are off. Push battery to the left. Disconnect battery negative lead (right) (do not let it touch pos. lead on left). Remove cover from pos (red/left) terminal and disconnect lead.

2004 f150 dome light with center roof rails, how do you replace the light bulb on the drivers side. This is the type that you push on and push off.


Double check, the rail system roof console should be held on with just spring clips ( check for a screw facing down, or to the side, pull out the rail accessory boxes to be sure ).

If so, start on one side with a hook plastic trim tool and pull down to release the spring clip, and work your way around.

On the back of the roof console the bulbs are installed in 1/4 turn bulb holders, remove form the back to replace the bulb.

The windows and sun roof doesnt work i think i have a blown fuse


The fuse and relay box on the E30 and E36 models is located in the engine compartment. The E36 models also has relay boxes located under the left side of the dashboard.

Circuit Breakers
Resetting & Replacement

Circuit breakers are located inside the fuse panel. They are automatically reset when the problem corrects itself, is repaired, or the circuit cools down to allow operation again.

One of the less known about fuses that can cause all this to go out is the fuseable link. It is in a black plastic box near the battery. It is an appx 60A thin metal strip fuse. Check the website link to the right for more info.

Also, I suggest check your Fuse Diagram in the BMW 525i Owners Manual here.

Power Sunroof
Emergency Closure Operation

The sunroof is equipped with an emergency closure feature should the sunroof motor fail or the vehicle has lost electrical power. To close the sunroof under these conditions:
  1. Remove the front headliner trim panel.
  2. Using the 6mm hex key that is included with the tool kit, insert the key into the hex socket and turn the socket to close the sunroof.

  3. Close the sunroof lid and loosen the screws on each end of the gates.
  4. Pull in the retainers, remove the center screws and lift off the lid.
  5. Remove the cover over the motor and gearbox. Close the sunroof lid, if not already closed.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness and remove the 3 mounting screws. Remove the motor and gearbox.
  7. Push the cables back evenly on both sides. Remove the rail covers and pull the cables out of the guides.
  8. Place the cable in the center position of the gate and press off.
To install:
  1. Install the cables to the gate. The cable are marked with the proper side of installation. Do not lubricate fabric covered cables.
  2. Pull the cables through guides and align the cables. Insert a hex key through the gate and cable at the 0 position.
  3. Install the motor and gearbox. The motor and gearbox must be synchronized with the hole in the drivegear aligned between the centers of the 2 gears. Torque the bolts to 2.0 ft. lbs. (2.8 Nm).
  4. Install the sunroof lid. Use new screws and torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
  5. Adjust the sunroof lid. Pull the roof liner frame into position and clip into place.

E36 Models
  1. Close the sunroof fully. With a quick actuation of the sunroof opening button, open the sunroof so the back edge of the lid depresses 0.08-0.12 inches (2-3mm).
  2. Slowly push the roof liner panel back into the roof. Do not force or use a quick motion or damage could occur.
  3. Remove the mounting screws and pull the lid off at the rear side. Do not operate the sunroof with the panel removed.

  2. Adjust the sunroof lid. Lower the rear of the lid by operating the motor. Pull the liner forward and clip into place.

Good luck.

Rear passenger fell into the door


You need to remove the handles, there should be small covers blocking the screw, remove these, then gently pull by the bottom of the cover, you should feel the clips holding the cover to the metal frame of the door. Remove them all round and push the cover up so the window seal jumps out from the rail. Should be easy.

Wind noise on 2006 Kia Sedona


  1. Pull the covers off from the top front of both rails.They are only loosely clipped.
  2. Undo the 2 screws found at the front and the 3rd screw at the back end of this base piece.
  3. Remove the base.( the nuts are locked in on the roof)
  4. Do this boths sides and then simply release the adjusting clips and slide off.
  5. Replace bases and screws in original positions and push on covers.
Best with 2 people.One each side when sliding off the cross rails.

Solved! And it looks neater.
