Trim coating bubbling?
OK. I did a search and found a thread that indicated others have had this issue. I took the car in to a dealership to see if they might be able to cure the problem. They took a plastic razor blade and tried to scrape the coating off. They claimed it was a "factory protective coating" that needed to come off. Now it looks like ****. I should make them fix it but they keep pushing back and I am about done with them. Should I order new trim? (mainly the door handle) I found the factory part. I also found some carbon fiber look replacements. Maybe some 3M film? What have you guys done to remedy this. It bugs the crap out of me considering the car is otherwise immaculate.
The door panels are actually a piece of cake to take off. There's a screw behind a tiny cover behind the interior door handle. You can pop that out with a tiny flat head screwdriver. Then there's another screw behind the black cover where your door mirror is and then another under the cover I side the door handle. Again a flat head head works perfect on those covers as well. And then I think 10 clips total on the outer edges off the door panel. I went to harbor freight and bought a panel tool for a few bucks. Then undo a few wire harnesses and that's that. It takes maybe 5 minutes on each door. Where did you get your replacement parts?
