Roof panel remove

    Hello Victor0512, Did you do the install yourself with DVD,etc..? Did you remove headliner to see the position for install only or to run wires? I am not technical, so will take somewhere for install. But, I have seen others with DVD on the side instead of middle, which I didn't like. Thanks. Crystal

    @crystal , I remove all the panels because I did the install myself. I also seen the monitors on the side and I didn't like either. There was a reasoning for it , when you install a monitor , some places place a wooden board to hold the monitor in place between the monitor and the headliner by removing the headliner I was able to get a exact location of the roof support beams which I drill on to which helps keep the monitor solid in place. If I did the side install like others have you would need to go with a smaller monitor. The other reason was if you notice in the picture , the airbag run all along the back on both side so if I did the side install I risk losing my airbag. Safety is always 1st It took me 2 days because I did it in winter. The van is big and you have a lot of room to work with. But a few thing to consider, i pick the monitor only screen because they are slim and the monitors that come with DVD are bulky, saves on head room. That's why I pick to have the DVD separate , plus it looks clean and like it came from the factory. Plus the tvs I got can be move side to side for viewing from any seat. The only cables you run from the top is the AV cables and the power cables, then run them behind the airbag and down the side pillar. My Nv is a SL model 3500 . So if you have a SL it should look the same. I did it myself because if I take it somewhere to install what I did it was anywhere between 2k to 3k . I plan for everything I needed which helps.
