    In removing the front door trim #6 Disengage clips D using a fastner remover from the body. What is a fastner remover from the body and how is used? Also the trim stick you refered to in your answer where do I get one and how do I use it?
    Auto Mechanic: brownjeff, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago
    a parts store will have a trim stick. it is a piece of hard plastic used to pry with. The fastener remover from the body is a push in pull out connector this is what the trim stick is for to pry them out with

    once I disengage clips D will I have to replace them or can they be used again? How difficult is it to re-engae the clips? Are here any other parts besides the mirror assembly that I need to replace?
    Auto Mechanic: brownjeff, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago
    Normally the clips can be reused. they go in easier then they come out. Should not need any additional parts
