Hello,
I can't find access to the rear suspension mount to install the rear strut bar. How do you remove the package shelf??

What kind of car do you have? if it's an s14 with the round speaker covers, just pop it up. if it has the larger speaker covers you need to unbolt the rear speakers first.

Yes, its an s14 '96. well the loudspeaker grills have no visible screws from either side. And ir requires quite a lot of strength to pop it up, if it is how it should be done, I kind'a afraid to brake it.. But if it's how it should be done, i''ll try.

Well it work so I am happy :)
Although it seems I've misunderstood the direction of popping it off. It's much easier and safer to the trim if you:
1) remove the black near vertical trim just behind the seats
2) and slide the package self towards the front of the car

This is incorrect. All S14 model rear deck covers simply snap up, there is no way to remove the speakers or their grilles until the cover is out of the car.
