    Lower the windows and pull off the door cards, there are two screws that hold them to the door. Be sure to use the right size screwdriver as they will easily strip and you cannot replace them with normal bolts as they will hit/scratch the glass when going up and down. Another method is to make a notch with a small chisel and carefully hammer them in a anti-clockwise fashion if they do happen to strip. (Part no. 90154-60027)

    Exactly. The part no. I mentioned was for the screws. Don't try and push the weatherstrips down to hard either, they always stick up a little bit. Just match them with the trim part on the rear quarter windows in height.

    Yes remove the door card. 2 screws holding them on, 1 at each end IIRC.

    I've had the horror of those screws in the past. Ended up having to drill one out. Glad the punch worked for you.

    All you gotta do is get a fitting phillips. Give them 2 good hits with a deadblow to 'crack em' and they come out normally.
