Cut the holes in the b pillar trim piece and got to the bolts to take the window out. Once the window was out it wasn't too big of a deal to get the new weather stripping on. It doesn't fit perfectly, but it's definitely an improvement over the old cracked busted original. I'll take some pictures tomorrow showing the passenger side (OEM rubber from 1986) and the driver's side with the new aftermarket seal on it.

This may be too late, but the plastic interior trim pieces around the rear windows in my truck are removed. If you need pictures I can take them.

I could use those pictures for sure. Put mine back together and can’t figure out what’s squeaking.

Yeah I just ended up cutting holes in my B pillars to get the windows out.


I did realize that I didn't ever take the pictures of the new vs old weather stripping, so I just did that. Pardon use of the selfie cam, the other camera on my phone has been broken for a long time.


These pictures really don't show as much detail as I hoped, but the old one is all cracked and such, and the new one seals much nicer.

OldGreyBeast, you said you started prying on the trim piece but it started cracking, and this got me thinking... what about securing trim pieces to the metal with velcro? This way they could be removed again without breaking anything. The pieces on the trim piece that lock into the holes would need to be grinded down or removed. I remember taking apart my dashboard many years ago and some of of the pieces above the radio were breaking so easily, it was terrible. All of the heat cycles that the old plastic goes through must do a number on everything.

KivPanther, I will get you those pictures!

Velcro would probably work in some climates, here in AL though the adhesive would just turn to sticky liquid and the panels would pull lose.

Here you go, hopefully you can see what you need to. I cranked up the brightness for the picture. If you need to know the distance between certain holes, etc, let me know, I can measure them.
