re: Subject: Door trim revised, removal


From: Joe Rae

I am removing the door bumper/trim on the outside of the door, I have the 

trim off of the car but there are strips of rubber compound glue, that held 

on the outside door trim, I cannot get this off.
Joe:  body shops use a razor blade tool to cut the glue off.  The blade has
"runners" on either side of the blade to let it ride very slightly above the
paint.  If you use the blade without runners, you'll likely score the paint
with the blade.  I think Bentley references this tool.
Tool may be available at parts stores; you might be able to jury rig one with
tape and a razor blade scraper.
