I found a wrecked '05 GXP/SLE that I want to remove the door cladding and rocker molding.

Never having seen one with the parts already removed, I need to know the best way to remove them (and without BREAKING them).


Any pics or suggestions on HOW to get them off, special tools, issues to watch for, etc.?


Thank,
Ken

No special tools needed. The door cladding is taped on with double sided tape. Carefully pry them off.

The lower skirts and cladding have clips on the bottom and in the wheel well, from what I remember.

Fishing line with two dowels can be used to "saw" through the tape once you get enough space to start working it. Use at least 10lb fishing line or a microbraid.
