  • NP Cargo Area Question!

    Hi all, just wondering if anybody can please tell me how much space is behind this panel bulge (figured I would ask here before tearing it apart)? I am guessing it is there to allow for fuel filler?

    If I am looking for a spot to install a small sub and this Joe's out at me.

    Any help would be great. Thanks all.

    The passenger side has a factory spot for a sub, a search should help you find a few pics.

      Thanks, will give it a go. Never have much success at searches.

      Would you happen to know how much space is behind that trim regardless?

        Have a look at this video, surely if there's room for a compressor, a sub will fit.

          Now THAT is interesting, as I was talking about that giant bulge on the driver's side, which you can see at the start of the video. 🤔

            From what I remember that’s quite a cavity in there - only retained like that for the rear AC in the Exceed model.

            The black thing over the wheel arch is a redundant air duct (for the rear AC the GLX and GLS didn’t get at the NP level).

            Depending on on the size of your sub it should fit easily.

            To to remove the trim you first need to remove the piece that surrounds the windows. Then remove the retaining screws and that panel should lift out. The seat belts need to be unbolted from the body too.

            Cheers

              Thanks so much Bennie. I have the Exceed, but reckon I will crack it open and investigate further. This is my first Pajero, only had it a fortnight and realise after endless hours on here that there is so much to learn.

                  Also, you have save me some pain by letting me know exactly what is hiding there.

                  Such a good little community here.

                    Just pulled all these panels out over the weekend to run cables for my reverse camera, which evidently after testing and it worked, ended up not working once I finished hooking everything up (I'm pretty sure I damaged the connector trying to push it through the door grommet) anyway, if you do want to get access to it, you 100% will need to take the top trim off first before you can get to the bottom, and use these trim tools they made the job alot easier too

                    If you want any other photos let me know as I'm going to have to do it all over again once a new camera rocks up in a few weeks.

                      One step ahead. Already got the trim tool kit ready to do some damage (or as little as possible)!

                      Good luck with your new camera LP.
