Window Trim Separating

Recommended Posts

I've got a problem with the window trim separating from the door on my 95 GS3. This gap creates a slight but annoying air leak around the window seal. Can someone tell me how to remove this trim piece without damaging it so I can properly reattach it? Is it held on with clips or double sided tape? Here's a photo. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

im pretty sure you got to take the door panel off then roll the window all the way down and see if you can get in there to pop it out.it might acually be screws holding it in.

Damn...I have the same thing only no where near as bad (on the driver's side, right?). I was going to use this glue/clear sealant I used in other cars called Weld. I was going to rough up the backside with a dremel, apply a little Weld, and clamp it over night. I figured I'd unhook the battery so the lights won't stay on (since the door would be open while the clamp is in place. I never considered letting Lexus guys spend $$$ to fix it. I don't even know how it happenned, just appeared one day a few months ago. After reading the posts, maybe someone tried to break in?

has anyone had that problem with the 98+ model? because my passenger side chrome window sill is sticking up a little. it looks like its held by double sided tape. any comments would be greatly appreciated.

The question is, how do you take it off? I think I can fix it once it's off, but I don't want to damage it further by doing it wrong.

A trusted body shop suggested an epoxy & clamp approach, but I'd rather fix it from the inside if I can. Thanks.
