Wheel well flare / molding removal and replacement.

Recommended Posts

We purchased the 2018 RX350 used with about 30k miles on it. It was in excellent shape, but I never noticed until a recent car wash that someone had used lots of touch up paint on the wheel well flare/molding on the front and rear passenger side to cover up some scratches.

So I ordered some new replacements and plan to put them on my self. I'm pretty mechanical and it looks like it may be an easy replacement, but I want to be sure before I start popping off clips to remove them.

Has anyone replaced the wheel well flare/molding before? If so, is it really a simple replacement? Can someone post removal instructions?

Thanks for your help!

It is very simple which you will see(15 min). There is an important screw to remove a clamp behind the molding. I can only refer to the rear molding.
