While the instructions may vary depending on your specific vehicle and the chrome window sills kit you select, the following instructions will give you an idea of just what the job entails.
Installing Your Chrome Sills
- You’ll need to remove your door sill trim before you begin installing your new door sills. To do this, start by pulling one side of the trim. It is held in place by plastic pins that pop out for removal. Do this slowly, and the trim will simply lift out. Keep the trim aside—you will need it later.
- After the trim is removed, you’ll need to remove the stock door sills. Door sills are held on with adhesive glue, so to remove you simply need to pull them off slowly. Discard them.
- Use WD-40 and paper towels to remove all the glue residue and dirt that may be under the stock sills.
- Decide where you are going to position your new door sills. Remove the adhesive backing on your new door sills and secure into place. Push down firmly to make sure it’s secure.
- Finally, replace your original door trim by placing it over the plastic pins and pushing back into place.
