Subaru: Roof Molding Studs

When it comes to repair information, vehicle makers use a wide variety of terminology for replacement parts. All of the different names can be confusing, especially when repairing a variety of vehicle makes and models. When searching for repair procedures, knowing what to look for can save valuable time. Recently the Ask I-CAR team was asked, is there is a procedure for the roof molding bolts on a Subaru?

Searches through the body repair had yielded zero results for roof molding bolts. As it turns out, this specific hardware is referred to as a T Stud. Subaru has a procedure for installing these studs on the vehicle. The T Studs are supplied already attached to a plate and the plate is then welded at each end to the roof panel.
