I need to replace my driver's door pillar and my rear door weatherstrip. Both were dented from the previous owner and have been the only eyesore on my car for 2 years now. Both parts are on there way, but i'm not sure how to install them. It appears they are only held on by clips. Does anyone have any experience installing these?

I have no idea how to replace. I would suggest asking local dealer parts counter to see exploded view on their computer. You could also pm and ask darkman if he could send you a file on it from his electronic manual. He has done similar requests in the past even though he could easily charge for and probably should charge for the service. You may also elect to wait and see the replacement parts in person first as then it should be clear how and where they are fastened.

No clips at all. Steps below.

Quite easy. First thing put window down, remove door panel by removing two screws hidden behind armrest and unclipping handle trim. After that pull seal out from channels inner part leaving dangling. Remove two 10MM bolts holding mirror in place. On backside of wide trim piece there will be 3 screws remove them. On inner channel side there will be 2-3 aswell. On very top corner there is one hidden you pull back upper weatherstrip lightly and unscrew. After that on you can follw upper channel underside there will be screws all the way down until you reach mirror. You can then remove that upper trim. Once out the weatherstrip can be swapped over if needed to new trim. Quite easy just time consuming for removing once piece of trim.

Thanks bro! Is this process similar for the rear door? My front door pillar needs replacing and my rear door weatherstrip needs replacing.

The rear is the same process except the door panels doesn't need removal because of no mirror if I remember correctly.
