I need to remove the chrome trim on my drivers door that holds the window scraper/felt. It's a Euro 72 GTV 2000. Can anyone offer any advice, I have tried popping it off the clips from the outside but it appears to be bending which would not be a good thing if I continue. Do I need to take apart the inside door panel and try to pry it off from the inside?

Also, I live in Montreal and would like opinions on the best Alfa mechanics in the area as well as bodyshops.

Grazie mille,
Roberto

Window Trim Removal

Roberto,
It's been a long time since I've done this, and it was a '68, not a '72, but see if this helps: Wind the window all the way down into the door and look inside the window channel from the top. At both ends of the trim and somewhere in the center, you should see a tab with a phillips head screw which holds the trim to the door. The back one and maybe the center one is accessible from the top, but you will have to remove the door panel to get to the front screw, located below the vent window. You may have to unbolt the winder mechanism and drop the window down to get to the center screw, I don't remember.

Hope this helps.

Theres Frank on st jacques near oxford/regent just east of the little underpass there on the corner north side...he knows his stuff but watch his prices ...he'd have the eyes out your head if you weren't looking.

I could find his information..I have it somewhere....

Bodyshops?..I don't know. They're all a bit of a gamble in my opinion.

There's a local club that you may have heard about..

http://www.vea.qc.ca/vea/club/new.htm

they tend to know all the best people but won't tell you who they are until you join..... i suppose that it's reasonable...it is after all, a club.

Good luck.

Hi and thanks for the info. Yes I've heard of Franco at Mafra. I haven't been to see him for any work but it's good to know. I heard of that club, I was at my shop a few months back having my new suspension put in and I met a guy called Jean-Baptiste who asked me to join that club.
Thanks again,
Roberto

Hi Bob, thanks alot. Took everything apart and it was exactly as you mentioned. Reason for me trying to remove it in the first place was that 2 clips were broken and causing moisture to gather under the seal. I'm having the clips mig welded tomorrow so I can re-install. thanks again. Roberto
