2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee body seal replacement
Newly acquired 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a damaged driver side door seal. I have bumped it a few times myself exiting the vehicle so now it is in shreds. Looks like the seal comes off pretty easy until I get down around the scuff plate. I will have to remove the scuff plate because the seal runs under it. In removing the scuff plate the service manual says: "Use a TRIM STICK to disengage the retaining tabs". What does this mean? How are the tabs disengaged? I seems the trim stick is just another name for a pry bar. I tried to gently lift up the scuff plate by hand but it did not budge. Does the trim stick have a special way of disengaging the tabs? Should I just pull harder? I don't want to damage anything so what is the best way to proceed? Thanks.
