Dismount the rear, centre headrest (1). Now dismantle the rear-seat bench (2) and the rear-seat back (3), including the centre armrest.

Remove the damping material (1) of the sound insulation mat along the perforation (2) on the partition wall in the central area, so that the steel plate is exposed for the making of the cut-out.

Open the boot and take out the floor mat (1). Now dismantle the rear trim (2) on the partition wall , by undoing the four fastening screws (3) and lifting out the central fastening cap (4) .

Cut the dismantled boot trim as is shown in the above drawing.


The cut-out centre piece is no longer needed.

3. Make the cut-out for the ski-bag cassette

F 39 72 021

The cut-out for the ski-bag cassette is made from inside the vehicle. Centring points (1) are struck on the dividing plate to the boot, and these indicate approximately the position of the cut-out to be made. Firstly, a guide line (2) is drawn with the metal ruler between the upper and lower centring points (1) on the right-hand side or it is marked with a strip of adhesive tape . Then the left guidance line (3) is drawn with a dimension of 228.5 (+ 1 .5). Now the lower guidance line (4) is drawn by connecting the lowest centring points. Next the upper guidance line (5) is precisely drawn with distance dimension of 321 (+ 1.5). Auxiliary drillholes (6) (0 Bmm) are made in accordance with the above diagram, so as to ensure secure guidance of the air-pressure saw (see magnification). Then with the help of the air-pressure saw the cut-out is made. Now check whether the ski-bag cassette fits into the cut­ out made. If necessary , rework the aperture.


Care should be taken that the dimension 321 (+ 1.5) from the lower edge is drawn and complied with precisely.


Remove material cuttings, deburr the plate edging of the ski-bag cut-out, correct if necessary and paint the bare parts of the plate with zinc dust paint.

F 39 72 024

From the passenger compartment, and with the help of the supplied, self-cutting hex-head screw (2), screw

the inserted ski-bag cassette through the partition wall.

The required tightening torque of the hex-head screw is 9 Nm.
