The rear decklid / rear window filler panel needed some attention, as the channel around the rear window was rusty and leaked into the trunk. We didn’t want our new trunk floor to be taken out the same way, so we elected to replace this panel.
A window was cut in the panel to gain access to the spot welds on both sides.
Like many repairs, the first steps are to drill out the original spot welds and separate the old panel from the body structure.
