Have a 2017 honda Ridgeline slider to installer at the dealer.
NAGS booked at 7HR.
Dont think it will take that long but I find when NAGS has long HR there is a lot of take apart.
Anybody done one.
Any advict. Thanks
Just did one yesterday. Not much more fun than the old one but here are some highlights:
- Still have to remove backseats but a little easier than previous.
- Dealer part comes fully assembled including middle piece. No transfer OTHER than motor/cable regulator assembly
- cut out sides and bottom first with Fein knife. Hit top last because pinchweld has a dip
- Transfer of motor/cables are tricky. We got the passenger side cable secure first, then the drivers side but slack was minimal. Have to compress retainer springs and then work it in with a fibre stick into it's channel. Much like a cable release on a door handle but sitting inside a one inch deep channel.
- disconnect seat belt which has to go behind the cables once part is installed.
First one took us 3-ish hours. Not the worst but if you can get the part fully assemble with motor, it is MUCH easier.
