1.) Get new "red berries". Ebay, dealer, Phil at FastLane, etc. Readily available.

2.) Remove the trim piece. little studs pull out of the plastic "berries".

3.) Massage and straighten trim.

4.) Put in new "berries", reinstall trim piece. You're good.

you don't happen to have the p/n for the "berries" or know the exact name as i can't find them on fastlane.

Phil will know. They are cheap enough I'd even buy 'em at a dealer, but put together some filters and needed stuff and give Phil a call at the 800 number.

Here's some:http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=33654&item=7982505040

I got some of those at the dealer recently. They've changed it to an off-white material. Much bigger lead in and flange. Less than a buck.
