lower window trim???

Any of you guys have problems with the lower window trim piece?? Mine is cracking and exposing the silver/chrome underside and I was wondering how you guys fixed it (paint or replace?). I would like to replace it if it's not too big of a job. Any help would be appreciated. Mahalo

I'll try to post a pic up of the area as soon as our little storm passes and weather clears up

Re: lower window trim???

I'm not 100% clear what piece you're referring to ... The trim / moulding where the window enters the door frame?

Yep, mine have been like that for years. I think it even started when the truck was just around 2 years old in 2003.

Re: lower window trim???

I have the exact same issue and haven't decided what to do. I really want to replace with new and just haven't gotten around to it. I've found some links that I thought I could figure it out from.

Re: lower window trim???

I have the same thing. I was thinking of just cutting the black off since the chrome kinda goes with my truck but am kinda afraid if the rest is not.

That what I want to do...I want to replace all of them...don't really want to pant them...you think I would have to remove the interior panel to remove the out side window trim???

Does any one know what the piece is called or part number???or an online site that people have ordered toyota parts from???
