Default replacing body-side molding with Escalade trim


Register to remove these ads. It's free!
does anyone know if the yukon's OEM body side molding requires holes in the doors or is just stuck on? I've got a hold of some genuine Escalade body side molding that I'd like to put on and they have plastic dowels for holes. It would be great if the doors had existing holes that would line up. Thanks

I've got a 2007 Yukon.

Even if our doors dont have locating holes you can still use them by cutting them off. Get some masking tape and run it across doors so you can actually see if its a straight line. You can adjust tape a lot easier than the mldg once it's on the door.
Edit:.....I just checked my estimating program, doors are the same.......!!!

I want to do this mod as well. I went to the dealer and I think I remember it being around $80 per door.

List price for OEM mldgs for an Escalade is 142.00 per side, (2 doors)
I'm sure you guys know someone in the biz that can get ya at least 25%off.

Fellas... www.gmpartsdirect.com they got'em, less than $200.00 for all four pieces, but you have to get them painted. It's just a small strip to paint and the rest is chrome.
