E87 Window frame cover replacement

Post by jay100 » Thu Mar 29, 2018 4:11 pm

Hi all, Picked up a 2011 E87 1 Series with some damage to the window frame cover on the rear door - picture below. Been looking for a DIY guide to replace but no luck - Is this something that can be done without too much trouble? If so anyone know where I can find a guide? Cheers in advance.

B Pillar trims can be replaced, but it's a pain of a job.

Hi

I did this repair to my car. It was the rear/passenger, but I think the principles are the same. There are some guides available. I will try and dig out, but essentially you will find it is just a few torx screws to release it and refit.

rear door

I thought it was a piece of preverbial, took about an hour all in.

voila!
