Pull up on the corner that is away from the mirror. If I pull up mine just pop right off. About 1/2-3/4" slides under the mirror.

VER YVER YVERY common issue. New parts run about 20 from the ford dealership. Take off your door panel, take off your mirror, pull up on the old ones, push on the new ones, done. VERY VERY easy and simple.

dang! that's cheap (inexpensive) enough!

i had two (of the four) on my escort that looked like utter crap (and the other two weren't as bad, but would have been noticeable if they didn't change as well)... cost me $140 for the set of four!!

(btw, the official name for the part is "beltline moulding") ... $20 a pop is cheap enough. I'll add this to my list, as I've had some stubborn tree sap crap get on and start staining mine...

This thread just saved my life. lol Mine is bubbled on the corners and I actually just got done yesterday pulling a whole wad of rust out fro underneath I'll try and get a pic of what it looks like. It might be past repairable.

I think $20 was what I paid....I feel safe saying $30 is more 'normal' for anyone to walk up to the parts counter. I have kind of a hookup at Ford. lol.
