Exclamation Outside black pillers (help Please!)

I have searched for a how-to-replacement guide and can't seem to find one.
I know I seen detailed instructions with pictures but darn if I can find it.
If anyone can direct me to the link or thread it would be appreciated.
Someone just tried to break into my car last night and bent the drivers pillar all to hell and then smashed the window after the fact. No use whining about it so off to the wreckers for the 2 parts (window & piller) I can do the window no problem. I just need the instructions on the black cover on the door so I can take it off at the wreckers.
Thanks!!

Thannks alot! The one I seen was different but hey whatever works......
Thanks Again!

They didn't even steal anything...after all that trouble of bending the piller and then breaking the glass while doing it. This was on my GT so all it had was the factory alarm..I guess I'll be installing a few upgrades to the factory alarm!!

Well it cost me $62.00 (glass and piller) which I figured was pretty good. I did all the work myself and saved a ton of money thanks to your help!

I got the Glass and pillar at a auto wrecker here....It was harder then I thought it would be to put the glass in; but the pillar was a breeze I don't know what the cost would be from the dealer now.... but back when the removal/install link above was written the author says:

5288840-AF Molding C - $20.25
5288841-AF Molding C - $20.25
5288838-AG Molding B - $13.75
5288839-AG Molding B - $13.75
5288836-AF Molding B - $20.25
5288837-AF Molding B - $20.25

Those are the part #'s and the dealer price.

Glad to hear they did not take anything. Suxx having your ride trashed. About 5 years ago had a 94 S-10 they broke into and all they took was my headset for work (Guess they had a Plantronics system without a headset)

To slightly off topic. Love the paint on the ride but I woulda had a Conniption on this model for rubbing that friggin belly ring all over my paint

Exclamation Re: Outside black pillers (help Please!)

I had my Acura broken into a few months back. They tore the center part of the dash to complete sh*t just to get the radio out. What sucks is I had just upgraded the dash to a newer custom model. Spent like $1300 on the radio, dash, and alarm. Battery went dead at the mechanics so alarm was useless. Anyhow police found the radio shortly after at a pawn shop. I still haven't got the dash right again.

Thumbs up Re: Outside black pillers (help Please!)

sorry to hear that your cruiser was broken vandalized and glad to see you got it fixed.I had my Elcamino's drivers window shot out a few years ago along with 28 other cars but that history.
your cruiser looks really great, did you place at the show where the picture was taken?

I didn't take the pictures they did them at the show. I didn't even notice to be honest; had I been there at the time......well that's a different story

No, it was mostly imports. The show was called "Drive" it is an annual show held here every year. I went with my buddy who owns a shop that does the doors/stereos/Wheels ect...He just asked me to come because he helped me with the doors and he just wanted a varitaty of cars that his company had done. His car is on the left side of my car. You can see his back door

It always seems to happen that way..the one time something isn't working
