Re: Roof Moulding Joint covers
I guess this has been resolved, but my covers situation is still a little upside down.
The right side went on smoothly, and the fit is absolutely perfect. Covers are orientated with the two arrows forward, side arrows away from the vehicle.
But the left side is another deal entirely. Despite being orientated with the side arrows facing away, the installation process involved a lot of snapping and re-snapping the covers on to get them positioned correctly, and the resulting fit is still not perfect. Close, but not perfect. On the rearmost left side cover, there is actually a 2-3mm gap along the outside edge of the cover.
My initial reaction was that there must be two kits of three covers, one for the left and one for the right, and I’d accidentally received two kits for the right.
Guess I’m wrong, but still... The right side definitely feels factory correct, while the left feels somewhat rigged.
I wonder if someone who received an FJ from the factory without a roof rack, like a 2011 NSSE or whatever, could weigh in on what their covers look like.
I honestly wonder if there is supposed to be two sets of three covers per kit, but Toyota screwed up the order, decided the numbers didn’t warrant a fix, and shipped what they had.
I mean, two sets with the twin arrows always pointing forward strikes me as a much simpler explanation than those arrows representing where to pull for de-installation... Arrows are always used for direction. Why not just write “pull here” or similar?
