Default Boot Positioning

Found a factory boot for my 2005 vert. My question is on the rear deck does the flap from the boot go inside the trunk lid to assist holding it down or is the flap suppose to stay on top of the deck lid?

Thank you for the help.

Cool Re: Boot Positioning

It stays on op of the deck lid....BUT.....Under the edge of the trim...and under the cloth top.

What I mean by that is....
The only place that the cover is on top is the forward facing extensions beside the back seats; which snap down on either side.
(You do have snaps, I assume???)

There is a narrow and wide black plastic fin that goes under the trim behind the back seat (the forward oriented edge of the middle of the boot cover).

But, the back end can be difficult....as.....
The back and corners should go over top of the cloth top; but, at the same time be under the body edge trim. This can be problematic at times.

My 2006 Black Sheep was no problem at all. In that, I could slip the edges under the trim with little effort when the top was completely down.
**However, on my now possessed 2005 Dream Cruiser vert, the top cloth cover comes tightly against the left and right corners of the body trim.
**This requires me first putting the top completely down - then slightly raising it - and quickly going to the back of the car to slide those corners down, before the last little bit of air leaks out of the system....and the top goes all the way down again.

**I thought this might be only a glitch on mine.....but the other Gen 1 PT Cruiser convertible owners at Branson last weekend confirmed that they have to do the same thing. Maybe they fixed this glitch in the 2006 and ups.


Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help. I never would have guess that. I will have to go out and give it a try on my 2005 (Gracie is her name) Charcoal Gray model.

I am doing an interior color change and found a light gray factory boot new still in the OEM package. Just got her back from the upholstery shop with the new light gray leather seats and door panel inserts.

New light gray sun visors are on order and new light gray carpet mats with PtCruiser emblems have been ordered.

It's coming along.

Thanks again.
