Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
There is a rust whole about the size of two quarters in the frame of my under the trunk how dangerous is it and should I be driving it
If it's the Malibu,the subframe is only in the front,holds the engine and trans,the whole back from about the front seats is unibody. The whole structure is just sheetmetal welded together. If the front is solid you are OK the only risk is if you get rear ended in an accident.
It would be weaker with the rust,also the hole could let exhaust fumes enter the car if there were a leak in the exhaust or extended idling .

First you will need a chrome removal tool KD 2038 or similar. You slide it under the edge of the trim between trim and glass, and slide up or down until you can make contact with clip. This tool will pull the clip back and let the trim pop loose. Now removing the glass. You need to be very careful. I wear a pair of heavy leather gloves while cutting the glass out. I have a Blue Point brand # YA 109A cutter from Snap On but I'm sure you could find it in another brand. You get it worked under the edge of the glass and pull. I guess fine wire like piano wire will work but have never tried it.
You might also find that one of your glass people does a little work on the side and have them drop by and cut it out for you.
Good Luck and be careful

It is best to replace the complete line, if it is rusted and you splice it , another leak spot might spring a leak, when you last expect it, better safe than sorry.
