I did mine with the doors intact (other than the mirrors hanging by the wires) and windows up. When you open the front doors you can get your index finger easily under the back of the front ones and pry up. the backs were a little trickier. I will take them off again tomorrow for ya'll and get some good pics of how i do it. i still have to do my passenger front one so i will do that tomorrow and create a write up on it for ya'll including using a razor to get the old vinyl off. so will be up and ready to go by the afternoon. will not be doing the top ones yet since i have my vent shades on and do not have enough double sided 3M tape to reattach them. but ya anyone who wants this done around new england or around the quad cities of IA and IL i will gladly do them all for ya. just send a PM to me and we will work out the details

Gunner, did you have to take the pieces off, or did the vinyl peel away? I would prefer option # 2. LOL

I m looking forward to the pics. I have this exact problem and want to be sure I remove the strips without breaking them.

Dude, that was fantastic. Never would have guessed those things would come out so easily, especially the back one. Doesn't seem like it would sit tight and not rattle around. Oh well, shows you what I know! lol

Thanks!

Had no trouble at all removing my driver door window sill, just pryed it straight up. I replaced it with a new one, about $120.00 from the dealer, in Mississauga, Ont.
