Hi. Brand new to this forum. Thanks for existing. Has anyone ever removed the rubber guards on the bottom of the door frames that protect from scuffs from shoes entering/exiting? To they just pop out with a trim tool?
Thanks, Lonn

Hey Lonn don't leave your readers hanging how did you succeed. It might seem strange, but I was wondering that same thing on my 05 I am a retired combination autobody repairman I never removed one myself.
FYI: To remove the door sill scuff guards: They're held in place by a full circumference of 2-sided tape. On the3 4-door model, the front ones also have 4 panel fasteners. The rear have 2 panel fasteners. Simply pry up the outer edges and then use a panel-fastener removal tool to pop out the fasteners. To replace. trace a line around the outside circumference, put down the double-sticky tape, place the fastners in the scuff guards and press into place. If you have to buy replacement fasteners, be careful not to buy ones that are even a little fatter than the originals; it'll be near impossible to push them into the metal rocker panels.

Thanks for reminding me to post my fix.

And thank you for posting your fix, I was thinking of refinishing the rocker panels i'm beginning to see blistering.
