No it does not, the side mouldings are seperate and pull off by lifting upwards, don't bend or they will snap. They push onto a metal channel welded to the bodywork pillar. I'm assuming your talking about the outer trims.

How to replace 2009 Jeep Patriot driver's side mirror casing

There is actually two panels that you must take off in order to remove the mirror. It's the same for both sides. 1) The rounded triangular trim at the top front inside door comes off first. 2) Small square trim piece directly below it is next. Both can be removed with trim tools which you can get at any automotive store. Lordco, Napa, Princess Auto, Canadian Tire for example here in Canada. After the trim pieces have been removed you'll see three screw studs pointing inward towards the dash board. 3) You'll use a 10mm socket or a screwdriver with an adapter to take off the nuts. Be careful not to drop the nuts!! And thats it. The mirror housing will now come off of the door. 4) Replace with new housing and reverse the order in which you have just taken it off.

How to change the headlight bulb on the passenger side of 2005 equinox

Step 1 - Raise the hood and remove the 4 push-in retainers that go along the top of the front grille. These are each two part retainers - remove both parts by prying with a small screwdriver. Nothing comes off here - this just makes the grille loose for maneuvering the headlight assembly around to get it in and out.
Step 2 - Remove the "bow tie" trim piece that runs from headlight to headlight thru the middle of the front grille - it is cheap plastic so do this carefully (mine looks like chrome with the Chevy 'bow tie' in the center). To do this, use a flat-bladed screwdriver and a rag (to protect the headlight). This trim part comes off - I started at the driver's side and work toward the passenger side. Place the rag below the trim on the headlight. Carefully pry up on the trim piece with the screwdriver and work the trim with your fingers until it pops out of the headlight assembly catch. There are lock tabs on both the top and bottom of this trim piece when you get to the grille area. Work your way down the trim piece by prying wherever you locate a tab and protecting with the rag as you go until the "bow tie" trim piece comes off. The headlight assembly catches are the tightest. Set it off to the side so you don't step on it or scratch it.
Step 3 - Unbolt the light assembly. There are two hex-headed screws on top and one 10MM down inside (towards the center of the car). Remove these 3 bolts.
Step 4 - Remove the assembly - There are 2 guide tabs in the lower outside part of the light assembly (opposite the 10MM screw). Wiggle the assembly while pulling out (forward). When the tabs clear, lift up on the headlight and it should be easy to work the rest of the way out to gain access to the headlamp.

Step 5 - remove and replace the bulb - it is halogen so you DO NOT touch it with your fingers because the finger oil will cause a hot spot and the bulb will burn out fast. Handle the new bulb with a clean cloth - a clean sock works well.

Driver power seat

Yes, that piece is called the "recline cover". You will need the trim color code from the vehicle identification plate on the inside driver's door frame to match the trim plastic color. This is going to be a dealer part or perhaps an ebay part but make sure the trim color is a match.

Heated seat switch bulb replacement

Had the same problem. Bought a new switch online for about $20. Remove the trim piece around the shift knob and then you can easily disconnect the switch and replace it. To remove the trim piece, start from the top and work your way towards the back of the car. There are three clips that hold it in place on each side and it will just pop off easily.

Driver's side mirror replacing

My Saturn is a 2001. I just worked a screwdriver around the rim of the plastic trim; it is held on pretty tightly by a couple of metal clips. Can anyone tell me the size tof the bolts holding the mirror (so I borrow the right socket from my neighbor :))?
