Corolla OEM Cargo Net
2010 Corolla S Trunk
Included Mounting Hardware
This automotive accessory installation "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 10th generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013) Toyota Corolla sedan in adding a Toyota OEM accessories bungee cargo net to the trunk.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus, Scion or similar Pontiac sedans or coupes such as the Altis, Axio, Camry, Yaris, Avalon, Prius,  tC, G5, ES350, IS 250, IS F, G6 and G8 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The procedure should be the same or similar for earlier generations of Corolla vehicles such as the 2003-2008 models.

I purchased this Toyota Corolla cargo net with mounting hardware on Amazon.

The only tool needed to install the cargo net is a standard flathead screwdriver or a pop rivet removal tool used to pop out the black plastic "Christmas tree" or "pop rivet" friction fasteners.

Pry Out Plastic Fastener
Two X-Mas Clips Removed
Peel Back Trunk Carpet
First pop open the trunk and locate the two round black plastic fasteners at each corner of the trunk closest to the tail lights.

Gently pry out the two fasteners at one corner of the trunk with the flathead screwdriver or a automotive panel removal tool.

Peel back the trunk carpeting and slide the self threading panel clip metal piece of the mounting hardware on to the mounting hole near the bottom of the trunk.

Slide On Metal Threads
Replace Trunk Carpet
Screw On Cargo Net Hook
Make sure that the hole in the self threading panel clip lines up with the hole in the trunk's body panel.

Replace the trunk carpeting and thread in the cargo net hook into the lower hole. Do not over tighten the cargo net hook.

Push In Top Friction Fastener
Right Side Complete
Left Side - Remove Fasteners
Re-insert the pop rivet friction fastener into the upper hole.


Peel Back Carpet
Slide On Metal Hardware
Replace Trunk Carpet

Repeat the same steps on the right side.

Pry out the two friction fasteners, slide the self threading panel clip onto the lower hole, replace the carpet, screw on the cargo net hook, and push in the top friction fastener.

Lower Hole - Screw In Hook
Attach Cargo Net
Envelope Bungee Net Installed
The final step is to attach the loops on the envelope style bungee cord cargo net to the hook on each side.
Bungee Cargo Net Opened

Save Friction Fasteners
Be sure to save the two pop rivet friction fasteners that you removed just in case you need them in the future.
