I originally had something a lot longer typed but I decided to keep it short and simple how do I remove the front door trim and where can I find new hinges for the rear window?

I have a pair for sale. I would like $60 for them.

Be careful with your headliner trim and headliner when replacing them. The "Phillips screws" are not screws, they are clip locks, and will usually break when removing them. They are made of unobtanium, so you can not get them. I have some extras in different colors if you need a couple. The clips are also in the same category. You have to put a thin screw driver under the trim to release the clips from the body. If the locks do not come out, you will damage the clips when removing them. Do not pull on the trim, or you will either stress discolor it or crack it. You also have to remove the grab handles to get to the hinge bolts. If you can remove the pin that holds the plastic exterior part (a drift from the left side will usually push it out), I can sell you a couple of exterior pieces for $40. The body side hinge parts are side specific, the plastic parts are not. If you do one at a time it is a lot easier to align the glass.
