How to replace weather stripping 1993 Suburban driver door

Hello, I am trying to replace the weather stripping from the driver side door frame on a 1993 Chevy Suburban and am not finding a lot of info on how to remove the plastic trim/molding that goes around the door frame and covers the groove the weather stripping fits in. I am able to pry some areas loose, but then I get to a corner or an overlap and cannot get it free. Do you know, or by chance know where to find, a step-by-step process on how to remove the plastic trim that goes around the inside of the door frame and over-laps the weather stripping/water seal? Of course I have tried prying gently at the plastic, and I can get large pieces to loosen, but there seems to be some sort of hidden tabs or screws at the edges and corners that will not come undone, without possibly breaking something. Specific problem areas are the kick panel at the bottom left side (wraps around into the pedal area), one screw along the base/step area that is hidden under the seatbelt retractor (really GM?), and the entire right side, behind the latch, which does not want to even budge. If you need more info just let me know. Thanks in advance!

Yes. Behind the carpeting in the trunk you will see a small plastic clip or "rivet". I think there are two, but you will need a small hammer to knock that out. Be sure to be ready to catch the taillight before you do it. You will also need spare clips to reattach it. I havent bought them from the dealer for mine, and it seems to be secure. No water has entered the housing or the trunk, so I dont believe they are necessary.

SOURCE: Replacing side view mirror, pulling off side door panel.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge

How do I remove and install driver window weather strip on 1985 Chevrolet el camino?

The best way is remove the door panel and take out the glass. Part of the track is bolted in and some of it just presses into the channel. Any of the seals across the top of the door, like if the window is down and your arm is resting on them. These just pry off and push back on.

1995 Saturn SC2 leaks when it rains - Water comes in from passenger side (upper frame) and somewhere in the trunk. Put silicone gel on the foam stripping, did not stop the water. Replace the door and trunk...

You can actually find NOS weatherstripping for old Saturns at getsaturn At least I was able to buy a new one for a 94 last year. It is a website for a Maryland dealer who sells at below regular cost. I have had 5 saturns and they never sold me a bad or wrong part. You could also look around on ebay, but what you would find there is another used leaky one.

How to change front driver side door hindge

You merely open the door, and unbolt the bolts/nuts from the frame. You could support the door on a small table while you remove the hinge-bolts. You may have to get into the door panel to disconnect the wiring plugs.

Removing door panel from a 1997 GMC Suburban

Door panel is attached to door frame on the sides and bottom perimeter with push-in fasteners. There are screws that attach the arm rest/door pull to the frame , and also the panel trim around the door open/close handle.

Locate and remove all screws.

The perimeter of the panel is popped away from the door frame by inserting a flat blade screw driver between the panel and the frame.
There is a trim tool for this that works better than a screw driver. Pretty inexpensive from an auto parts store. Once the sides and bottom are free, the panel is lifted up to disengage it from the top portion of the frame where the panel is attached to the inside of the window trim.

Be careful not to pull or yank the panel too far out because of the wires that are attached to the inside of the panel.

Those plastic fasteners are replaceable, should any break when they are popped out (again, auto parts store carries these).
Hope this helps...
