^ Since your car is out of the factory warranty, you'll need it. Best you can probably hope for is them covering materials, you pay labor.

Yeah that's what I figured. Looks to be an easy job so I'll most likely do myself.

So, corporate just got back to me and they offered to just pay for 25% to replace through dealer. Looks like I will be doing it myself. What website can I order parts from?

It took me about 30 minutes but only because I spent a lot of time cleaning the area behind the trim (there were leaf particles and lots of gunk).

To remove the trim just use your fingers and pull up slowly but firmly from the top going down. The clips will break free one by one. At the bottom there are two clips that also break free. To install the trim just pop the bottom part in first and then work your way up, making sure the clips seat correctly. I would also put some trim protectant on everything to hopefully prevent this from happening again.

If anyone in NorCal needs help PM me.

Mine was covered under warranty and I have a 08 w/51,000 miles but I got the CPO warranty. Don't know if it's different than yours

This problem is usually only covered by the original warranty. Not even a CPO warranty is technically supposed to cover it. The good news is that it's only a ~$70 DIY fix.

Good thing Stevens Creek Lexus covered it. That's $70 bucks I saved and it went to gas. Anyone that lives in California knows how expensive gas is around here

Where can I get the parts so it's an easy $70 DIY fix?

The grand total out of sewell is $127...


thanks,
Louis
