    Help with identifying a broken part

    Can someone help me with identifying the broken part number shown in the pictures below. This is where the Tonneau Cover pins lock it in place. I have tried top check the diagrams and may have found it but not sure. Once identified the question is also what is involved in installing it. Thank you in advance for any assistance!

    Hi Skip - I had to replace one of those. PN 51-43-7-002-503 Left or PN 51-43-7-002-504 Right from the parts diagram. You have to pull the rear trim panel. To the best of my recollection, remove the scuff plate at the threshold (3 screws) to expose the lower screw holding the trim panel. Then at the top of the door frame, pull the rubber moulding cap to the side to expose the upper bolt holding the trim panel. I think those are the only fasteners. You have to remove the trim panel to access the little screws holding the "top finish panel" (the broken piece) in place. I tried an epoxy fix on my broken finish panel - didn't work too well so went with a new one. Have Fun! - Mike

    Thank you so much Mike! Greatly appreciated. Not sure if I tackle the repair myself, but it sounds like even I could do that... And the best news - the part is only a little more than $100!

    Have a great week!
