Nissan Pathfinder Luggage Rack Fairing Removal


The area behind the fairing was incredibly dirty. The only way to properly clean and wax the area is by removing it. But how in the world do you remove it?

Pry the cover upward. Start from the rear and it will eventually pop up.

Here's what the fastening system looks like. The cover has plastic posts with a metal thingy around it. The post inserts into a hole and the thingy causes a friction fit. Use a #30 Torx to remove the 2 bolts on each side or cheat with a 5/32" allen key.
