Great idea using the ladder ! My 240 wagon is a '90. I would like to get a better idea of each wires function on the drivers side and passenger side.
** Just realized the license plate lights don’t work. Are they powered via the driver side ?

Update: Talked to Swedish Car Parts regarding the harnesses that go to the hatch. First: they were not all the same. He suggested to first note the type/style of connector ( ie round or square ), and the shape of the harness coverings ( square or round ). In regard to using the ladder to hold up the hatch, he said a blanket should be positioned between the hatch and roof.
I'm still at a loss as to how the headliner gets pulled back, any help here will be appreciated.

The head liner is a stretchable vinyl that has a 1/4" wide stiff plastic strip sewn around the edges. The plastic strip turns under into a crimped strip of metal welded the entire circumference of the liner.

Gently pinch and pull a place on the edge of the vinyl until the strip is out of its slot. You will need to take the rear storage light off anyway to get to the wiring and that will give you a place to pull without much tension.

Amateur Tip: Wear clean gloves, if you've been into the black butyl rubber sealing the hinges.

Miserable job.

I’ve seen speakers installed in the gate. Must be a job to run the wires.
