Again, about removing the weatherstrip

Sorry for bringing up a new post since this topic has been discussed several times, and YES I did read those posts. But today when I try to remove my old weatherstrip I found it is not that easy:

1. where shall I begin? someone mentioned I should start from the "far left" side for the driver side, so that should be the side close to rear?

2. It's very easy to mess up the paint even if I put cloth/paper under my screw, when I put my screw between the weatherstrip and the door and turn clockwise, it does lift up a little and I can see one white plastic pin coming out, but I also noticed that the paiting under my screw is also screwed.

3. I don't know how many plastic pins are there, so when I lift them all the weatherstrip should automatically come out from the glove right?

Anyoen has done this before could u give me some help on this?

Thanks in advance!

Just FYI for those who try to order the parts from hondapartsdeals. com, the part # 72375-S30-003 is NOT what you are looking for, it is for inside door seal, NOT the outside door window weatherstrip.

I just received the wrong parts and I am so pissed off. I didn;t find the right part on their website, if someone knows the part # or where can I get a replacement online please let me know. Yes I am talking about the outside door window weatherstrip fading real bad.

Thanks!

thx

Do I have to take off the side miror first? Someoen mentioned just use a screw to lift it up without removing the mirror, I am confused....

btw, is it easy to remove the mirror? where shall I start?

Thanks!
