Hello all,
I am finishing up my build and trying to find out if the black steel bracket/filler panel above the sliding door in my 2020 MR 148, 15 pass is structural or functional? Not sure if it was just used to tie in the ceiling trim or work with the side airbags in some way. It almost appears to be structural, except the fasteners seem a bit light. Pics of panel attached I hope... First time posting.
Can this panel be removed?

Yes remove it. I'm pretty sure its for holding the curtain airbag.
