Red face How do you Remove Door and Side Mouldings on a 126

Can anyone tell me How to remove the lower side mouldings on my 82 300 SD 126 chassis. Do you have to take the interior of the door off to get at some bolts that hold that moulding on or do you just pry it off? I want to sand some rust out at the place where the moulding meets the metal. Then I'd like to have the car painted. Can anyone help me?? Thanks

There is a small bolt attached to the rear of the moulding which goes through the door. It is hidden behind the rubber seal on the inside of the door.

It is on the rear vertical part of the moulding, about half way down. it's accessed through a small hole in the inside of the door and it a PITA to remove and even harder to screw back on. There are various techniques posted on the forum.

Once the screw is removed you can ease the moulding off. As I recall the rear pulls out and then you have to push (thwack) it forward as the forward mounts are u-shaped.

I cannot remember at which stage you remove the chrome trim strip. I think it slides off to one side or the other.

If you cannot find instructions here or on www.**************.com pm me and I will look up the shop manuals which I have at home.

it's rather complicated for so simple a part and if the vehicle has been painted by a shop that does not know this model it has probably been buggered up and glued back on (don't ask me how I know....)

Thanks I appreciate the reply, I thought I may have to take the whole interior of the doors apart to remove the mouldings off. I thought I might have to just pry the mouldings off.. Thanks again and I'll give it a try...
