Seeing if any of you have had this problem. I keep finding little problems with my 22K miles SSEi.
On both of my front doors. The body side moulding has separated from the door in the lower front corner of each door. It makes the moulding really stick out from a side angle view. Is this a common problem? I don't see how to fix it since the moulding has stress pulling it from the car. I see it'* using double sided tape which has come loose.
I have what appears to be the start of that problem on the front part of the left rear door. A friend had a '99 Grand Prix that had a more serious problem. Some body moulding tape at the local department store and some small C-clamps took care of the problem. It turned out to be easier than I had feared. This is an option, if you're out of warranty.
Mine was already coming off when I bought the car (36,000mi). It'* a real pain in the ***, 'cause every time I open my left rear door it catches on the driver door and rubs into the paint. I need to get that fixed. Not sure what caused it.
The problem with plastic is that you just cant put it back on, because "plastic remembers" and will just revert to sticking back out no matter what you try short of putting a screw through it.
I had to replace the rear passenger side molding on my 98, a brand new OEM part. Cost 300 some dollars when all was said and done. And my driver side rear sticks.
