    Excellent! Thanks!

    Question: You're saying that those sticky plastic pieces are "acoustic" covers. That's probably true, but aren't they also vapor barriers? (Preventing moisture from wet window passing into the door panel and door panel sound insulation?)

    need HowTo's sections on the forum for each of the Models.
    Great info from generous forum members just gets lost in all the noise.

    Thanks for the video, but it doesn't help me in the particular problem I have. The rear door handles are pretty easy to get out. The right front one, the glass is always in the way. Of the nut at the top. Have you dealt with that yet?

    That video is coming next week. You have to remove the chrome window trim to get access. Stay tuned

    Sounds good, thanks. And, maybe we should both get some sleep!
