I have a damaged rear applique on my passenger side rear door. I have a replacement part but am not sure how to remove the damaged part.

Also, not sure how to install the replacement part.

Has anyone changed this part out that can share their insight?

Thanks in advance for any help!

From the looks of the part, pull back the rubber trim/seal on the door side and you should have access to the screws. Once those are removed, you should be able to use a pry tool to pop it off the rest of the way.

Looks like the far side sort of wraps around the window side, so just fangled it off. If any double sided tape is used, just make sure you clean it off real well and use alcohol to wipe off any residue before reapplying new stuff. If it seems stuck on really well, can probably use a heat good to soften the tape

Good luck, I have faith you can do it!
Thanks!
I will give it a try.

I wanted to update my post to enable closure.
Pulled the rubber window seal forward away from the applique (trim) and exposed the screws.
Removed the three screws.
The applique hooks on along the back edge of the door. So, just had to pull up and to the rear to remove.
Basically, reverse the process to install.
Thanks, rambleon84 for your input!
