Default ebay screwed***UPDATE***

well I bought some matte black vinyl off of ebay to do the window sill fix like alexcoqui
did in this thread.
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...hlight=#931708

won auction on the 17th
paypal same day, e check clears on the 22nd
received a email saying will be shipped on the 24th with tracking #

today I sent the seller a email via ebay asking when to expect it.

he sent back right away saying item has been received with a quote from the tracking # saying so.

WTF

Yeah, follow up on that tracking number. It should say when and where it was delivered.
Definitely use PayPal, the wife has had to do it a few times.

UPDATE

after a few emails back and forth with the seller asking me to give it a little time
thinking it may have been lost in the mail somewhere.
and me being a patient person (really I am) I waited.
I did believe the seller shipped it since he is a power seller on ebay
and he always replied back to my emails.


well it came in the mail today

let the window sill repair begin

question...Who did you get it off of? Or what did you type in on ebay to find it?
And how do you take the window sill off the car??

I pulled my driver'* side rear sill off. It has clips attached to the sill that fit into holes inside the door. To remove the rears, carefully pull them up... A little at a time so you don't bend it. They just push back on. To do the front ones, you need to remove the top triangular trim piece just over the door panel on the inside of the door. Grab it and pry. After that'* off you may see three nuts that hold the mirror on. If you don't you need to pull the piece of gray insulation out (it'* not attached) and you'll see the three nuts that hold the mirror on. Take the nuts off and the mirror can be moved out of the way. Be careful to watch the wires that control the mirror. Move the mirror out of the way and you can get the front sill off.

Ok so to get the front ones off you have to take the mirror off then pry it off slowly...but the rear ones all you have to do is slowly pry them off.

What did you use to pry it off with? flat head screw driver? putty knife?
