Apparently also more you order faster shipping you can get for free. Sorry for the thread jack, but thought it might save people money.

Also, while im in here talkin about trim. For the rear window i need new trim, that something a window installer (Safelite, etc) would do?

Awesome writeup thanks, I def have to do this!
Thanks for the advice on where to buy cheap!

However, please leave your questions for another thread. This is a DIY, and I intend to keep it that way.

Yeah sedans are easier, you shouldn't have a hard time with them.

I got mine from the dealer locally for like $11 or $12 each .... the ones i had ordered online weren't the right ones and we needed them asap. A lot cheaper than I thought they'd be...

Key point here people.

I did this last night; it does require patients.

It took me nearly 30 minutes and a few replays of the video to find what I was looking for. It helps a lot to have a mini maglite or similar to shine into the hole.

Thanks for the DIY!
