Eldorado Window/Door Trim
The trim around the rear window on both sides of my '97 ETC is separating from the plastic backing as well as the trim around the driver's side quarter window. I've seen that there is a technical bulletin about this problem which says that a kit with instructions (12481204) was available from GM, it seems that is no longer available. I've seen some stuff in the archives with various suggestions (epoxy, RTV, in the vehicle, with the panels removed, etc.). What have people found recently is the best way to fix this? Does anybody have the "instructions" that came with the GM kit?
Thanks in advance.

Id pull the panels and inspect them closely. Careful, the clips are of plastic as well as the housing for them on the panels themselves. I ended up replacing my panels
