Question about 1993 Chevrolet Suburban
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.

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
