#1436 of 1439 2013 Highlander - Door Edge Guards & Side Molding
Feb 15, 2013 (2:37 pm)
When I purchased my 2013 Highlander it had the side molding on the doors. I want to add the Toyota door edge guards. There is about 1/8" from the end of the side molding to the edge of the door. I have asked parts dept., Toyota parts suppliers, and even Toyota whether you can install the door edge guard with side molding installed. For some reason no one has been able to answer my question. Has anyone installed door edge guards when there is side molding installed?

I wonder if you could order a set and do a "dry fit" install to see if they work. And then return them and get your money back if they don't work?
Watch out for a restocking fee if you decide to go this route.

I saw a car yesterday that had both the side moldings and edge guards. They just split the door edge guard into two parts--one went above the molding, and the other half was installed below the molding. I thought it looked OK. The moldings were the same color as the body, and the edge guards were black It might look a little different if you have a white car with black edge guards or some other color combination. This is just a suggestion.
Another thing you might try is to trim away the part of the edge guard that interferes with the side molding. It might be a little difficult to do, but if you take your time, this might work out for you. Good luck.

I have a 2013 Highlander Plus an would like to install Sirius/XM radio. Is there anyway to hardwire it through the current factory radio or do I have to go after market installation?
