Replacing the Door Belt Moldings (08 Liftback)

I noticed the door belt mouldings, the rubber strips between the door frame and window, are deteriorating on both sides of my 2008 liftback (most likely thanks to the southcentral Texas heat!).

Anyone replace theirs yet? How easy of a job is it? Do they just pop out like a lot of the other body parts on the Yaris? How much are the replacements?

Here's the schematic I found, the item in question is circled in red...



Cheers! M2

Well, I answered my own questions. I ended up buying the replacement strip from my local Toyota dealer ($29.32 with tax, ouch!). Removing the old strip was a doodle, I simply wedged a knife under the old strip starting at the back of the door and lifted it up. Mine was so far gone that it started to come apart, so I grabbed it to pull the now two pieces out together (so it wouldn't split any more).

Attaching the new one was a snap, just tuck in the ends (they go under the door moulding at both ends) and press down until it snaps into place. I counted three snaps, and it looks like it's fully attached. No need to remove the mirror or any other door parts.

The old one was a mess, but I decided to only replace the driver's side as it was much worse that the passenger side. I will replace that one as well, but I'll order that one online and save myself about $5-10.

Overall, it was a simple job that took less than a minute or two.

Cheers! M2

Thanks for the info. The strip on my driver's door is coming apart, too. I thought I was going to have to take apart the door to get it off, and I was expecting the part to cost more than $30. This is good news, then!

Naw, it's super easy. And you can probably find the moulding strips online much cheaper than from the dealership if you're not in a rush. Just note that I was told that the part numbers are different between the driver and passenger sides.

I have the same issue, what will happen if I leave it be? is it possible for water to get in there and have major issues with the electronics and corrosion?

These things are not 100% effective in keeping water out. I suspect the biggest advantage to keeping them intact would be keeping debris from entering. Such debris would then hold any moisture which does enter, promoting rust.

2011 Hatchback Door Belt Molding Replacement

Rotten already! Mr. BeetleBug's window rubber lasted for a couple of DECADES. This stuff is junk. Cost me $24 each at the local Toyota Stealer. Easy to do, no reason to follow the manual (attached) and disassemble the door. I bought left and right but replaced passenger side only. Just need some tape and your handy-dandy China Freight door panel tool.

This! Mine always freezes my windows shut in the winter.

Mines are not broken yet, but are faded with time. Doubt I'll replace them.

Thought, I'm curious about the other piece of the window trim. Mine rode up from opening and closing the window, leaving a gap between the belt trim.
