Just curious .... I'm replacing the belt line, felt etc in my doors.
My question ..... I know you need to take out the rubber stop at the bottom of the door..Its not just slipping off! If I give it the yank job.. how much damage do I do....and if it comes off how big a PITA is it to get back on? Anybody got any tricks?

It should just pull out, try starting at one end. To reinstall, put a little oil on the part that goes in the hole, should inset easily.

Bob...I was assuming that was all there "should" be to it. But the suckers in there tight! I'm afraid of tearing the "nub" off ...thats just the way my luck seems ta go. Then insult to injury would be after I tore it off.... there'd be a little screw or something holding it...... and as long as I'm whining.... nothing ever seem s to go back in easy! LOL

If they are original, you'll never get them out without tearing them (30 + year old rubber is not very forgiving). Plan on ripping them and replace with new ones ... they're plenty cheap and plenty available.
