#155 of 164 3M film (clearmask, clearbra)
Jun 04, 2007 (11:14 pm)
Anyone have suggestions to remove old 3M film quickly? I left it on for almost 7 yrs now, and it has cracked into tiny pieces. They will still peel off w/out residue, but you have to start anew at each piece-this could take weeks.
Tried a hair dryer but was afraid of damaging paint.

Have found 3M site where they recommend 150 degree temp with heat gun or hair dryer...also leaving in sun 1-2 hours first. Will try on a sunny weekend.

I purchased moldings for $120 (including shipping) and installed them in 20 minutes. Rubbing alcohol (75%) works fine to clean the surface. Installation instructions are included in the package. Very simple!

I have just purchased a 2006 Avalon Limited. I think I want to add the body side molding. I cannot seem to find a picture of an Avalon with it installed. Does anyone have a picture of the molding installed? If so please send to: wadestersbellsouth.net
Or if near Atlanta I would love to see it. Thank you...

Or better yet someone could post a pic on his or her CarSpace page so all can see it!

I have a 2006 XLS Avalon and also would like to install the body side moldings. Where to buy from? Price I should expect to pay? Please, let me know and thanks in advance for your help.

Any Toyota dealer should be able to get the moldings in your body color and install them for $200. or less. Check the color match before installation. Your paint color may be slightly different from when new so make sure the color match is satisfactory. I have had them on my '07 Limited since new... Enjoy your Avalon...
#162 of 164 2008 Avalon front grill removal
Dec 26, 2008 (12:05 pm)
I am considering putting a SS billet grill on my 2008 Avalon. For you mechanics out there, would appreciate knowing how difficult or easy it is to remove the front grill (upper chrome piece and lower plastic piece). Is any cutting or removal of major components involved or is it basically a unscrew/unbolt and replace procedure. Thanks for the help.

Do you really need the complete mirror, or just the glass? My driver's side mirror (glass) was replaced for $92, including labor. Like you I was first quoted the cost of a complete mirror assembly.
