Cargo cover repair

First of all, I'd like to say what a help this forum has been. I've had my dark blue 2.5 2005 "autotragic" for about a month and a half. Even though this is my first post, I have been lurking and learning quite a few things including how to swap in an aftermarket radio, replacing the plastic dash box with the nicer covered one, and much more. I've picked up most of these improvements via my local junk yards, where I recently found a cargo cover from an Impreza. It had some heavy parts stacked on it though, it didn't pull out and was a bit banged up and dented. After talking to the yard owner, I managed to get it for $3. I figured I could get it home, take it apart and straighten it out. Only problem is I can't figure out how to take it apart. Anyone have any idea? Sorry if this is a repeat, I tried searching through old threads before posting. Many thanks.

Re: Cargo cover repair

Can confirm, have never had a need to take that part apart. Try checking in the Technical Documentation forum for a diagram in the shop manual/owners manual? I would assume it's fairly straight forward.

Re: Cargo cover repair

I would think that the cargo cover is a completely non-serviceable part, especially considering that it has pretty strong springs inside of it to retract the cover. Typically, things like this (i.e. cargo covers, seatbelt retractors, tensioner assemblies, etc.) are not user serviceable.

Even if you could get it apart to 'fix' it, you'd never get it back together to work right again.

Re: Cargo cover repair

arrow-up Ah, good point. Also... it's like a $30 part functional
