Well, your issue got me thinking....maybe those "extra" lifting cables I planned to disregard are actually needed to prevent the poor-fitting cargo cover from falling downward ? Do you have the cables installed ?Looks like everyone's cargo cover fits nice and snug. My cover seems to fall off the side panel ledges easily unless it is lined up perfectly. Do I have to take a heat gun to the lips on the side of the cover and bend them out?
Sorry Mud, thought I replied to this. Esaleris is right about the lack of support when the liftgate is closed.The lifting cables aren't tensioned to provide support for the cargo cover. Note that there are two variants of the cargo cover. If you get the narrow one it will always not fit the cargo space. I ordered the wrong one and found that to be the case. The correct variant should rest peacefully on the lip in the cargo area.
Good tip, thanks !Sorry Mud, thought I replied to this. Esaleris is right about the lack of support when the liftgate is closed.
After looking at the various styles, I do have the right cover. Ended up making "spacers" from some new heater hose and putting on the pivot posts. This keeps it centered so that it rests solid on both left and right lips of the cargo side panels.
