I was washing my old Ridgeline (541 miles) yesterday. I noticed an item on the cab roof that kind of threw me. At the very rear of the roof, on the driver's side, is what appears to be a removable cap about the size of a nickle. Anyone have any idea what this access is for?

There is a thread about this somewhere. I'll look and see if I can find for you.

Are you talking about inside the cab? If so, if you have an RTL with sunroof it is the cover for the manual crank for the sunroof, should you ever loose power you can still close the moonroof using a tool in your tool kit that should look like z shaped tool. If not, I am not near one now so I am not sure what else it could be.

No, I'm referring to the exterior of the cab. I can't believe I hadn't noticed it before.

Tool in your tool kit.

2. What toolkit
3. Where is it?

Teach me obi-wan. :confused:

The toolkit is with the spare in the trunk. The manual crank is the "Z" shaped thingy. Works really well, but I use the manual switch;) .

I knew about the tool kit but didn't know about the manual crank for the sunroof. The things you learn on the ROC!! Thanks!!

Access to install auxilliary antenna is my guess. ;)Being 6'6", I can tell you there is one on the other side as well. Had to go check and confirm due to my partzimers.:rolleyes:Anyone remember twin hustlers, and no I am not recalling a threesome.

Has this been resolved? Although I don't own an RTL, I've close-ups pics of an RTL model and nothing sticks out other than the two roof trim nut covers as shown below.

No, but I think you just presented the resolution. That panel, I guess must be removable because it houses the radio antenna. :cool:

Actually, the XM antenna is a few inches in front of this trim and if you needed to mess with the XM antenna or antenna module, the headliner needs to removed. :)

I had to remove this trim in order to route my magnetic SIRIUS antenna through the hole where the wiring harness for the upper brake light is located. Talk about a pain! I didn't want to remove the headliner so I opted to go with "hooking" the antenna wire using a...ummm...hanger, then pulling it through the right-rear C-pillar trim. God only knows how much time I wasted trying to snag the freakin' antenna wire. I finally hooked it though. :D

Oh man, the memories this toggles. I had twin hustlers, three police antennas, and a am/fm antenna on my 74 RoadRunner (7mph city/15 highway). Trucker quote "That RoadRunner has more antennas than a porupine has quills". Miss those good ol days.... ;)

I really want to hear more about this manual sunroof closure. Anybody heard of this? :confused:

Allo? :D And where do we think that the factory roof rack attaches?
I wondered about that but he didn't have a roof rack so being the woman I am...let the idea leave my head. :confused:
