2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Re-Installing the Cargo Cover
April 14, 2015
So I have an expensive purse. Most days it is worth more than the sum total of its contents, cash and credit cards included.
On the rare occasions that I need to leave it in the car, I'm careful to lock it in the trunk or hide it under the cargo cover in a minivan or SUV.
That's how I realized the cover in our 2014 Jeep Cherokee was snapped in backwards.
I pulled the handle back to stretch the cover into position, but it stopped at least 6 inches short of locking into place. Squaring my grip and putting more weight behind the pull, I tried again. Still no dice.
I looked at it again and realized whoever used it last installed it backwards, which causes the cover to roll from under the plastic casing instead of from the top of it. On second look, I also noticed the exposed metal fasteners, which should have indicated that something was wrong.
