Hi, i replaced the rubber trims on the doors with good used parts (3x for £35, autolusso), i was also quoted over £140 for 4 new from a dealers.
I had a few bubbles in the middle of the drivers door trim or so i thought until i removed it, and found it had burst open in 3 places middle and both ends and was split about 4" in length, it was bright orange and crumbling, didn't look too bad on front surface, luckily lip on top of door skin was still imaculate no damage.
I replaced drivers door, passenger front door and passenger rear door which was the worst, its a thin metal strip glued inside the rubber seal...
I treated the open ends of the trim before fitting behind mirrors and added a blob of clear silicone..
Looks 100x better, i was expecting to pay £15 each new from dealers, i think £140 is a shocking price..
Easy to do, took about 20 mins each to fit, just get someone to hold the mirror for a minute to remove strip and
tempoary bolt it back on and clean up gunk on lip, then have assistant hold mirror while attaching new trim, easy.
