Before I go and break things that I don't know for sure how to remove I think i'll ask. How do you remove the air vent covers, trim pieces around the window and lock controls and the little rings around the locks themselves? Thanks!

AIr vent covers are easy. Just unscrew the screw in the hook thingy and pull the center bezel out. As for the locks. I just take off the whole door and pop them out through the back

MIgh be an easier way to do it but I take off the whole door so I can squeez the clips that keep it in place. you can try poping it off the front but you mught break it.

Ok Im guessing that you are going to painting these items. As for the AC vents just take a flat head screwdriver and towards the middle push the handle upwards so the screwdriver pushes the middle piece down. As for the door parts, simply unscrew the screws that are on the door lift the door panel upwards and then once off you will see the door pieces to take off.

You can pop the door lock surrounds off with your fingers actually. Same thing with the door controls. Or get a flat head screwdriver, cover it with some electrical tape and slide it under the edges. Pop it up gently and they will all come right off.

Or remove the door panel,as said above, which is simple as well. One bolt behind the door handle, use a phillips or a 10mm I think and unbolt it. Then undo the screw in the "Sail Panel" near the window. After that, I think there are maybe 4-5 screws on the bottom door edge. Take the Grab handle and pull up and out gently. Then you can reach around and unhook the module wiring clips and then push the pieces out. But I still say its easier to just pop them loose and unhook them.

Best way to remove the radio bezel is to:

remove the trim panel beneath the steering wheel (2- torqux(sp?) screws)
once you get the screws out the panel will pull off
remove the screw by the little hook thing
gently pull the whole bezel off. It should only take about 5-10 minutes at most.

Well since paint, primer, time would cost 30 + I just bought them off ebay for 25 bucks :D They are just molded covers......fit like a glove too. They have all diff colors. I'm gonna get one for the over head display too I think. I just wanted to try these out first to see if they are junk. They aren't top notch, but they aren't complete junk either....

Everyone that sees them in person loves them.

Yea I never noticed you the one under the steeringwheel had screws until the bottom snapped off because the whole got bigger than the screw....

Idk, I have always done that but 9 months later the damn thing falls to the floor, I had to bang the plastic back to keep the hole shape for the screws.
