Does anyone know how to remove and re-install the black lower door molding with the aluminum trim plate that is on the exterior of each door of the '03-'06 Cayenne. I am specifically interested in the rear driver's side door. A schematic would be great if available.

Many thanks!

This happened to me just two months ago and I was able to order just the trim. It's actually very easy to replace. To get the old trim off, I used a metal paint scraper with a small blade, and then used the same scraper to get off as much residual tape as a could. Removing the old trim ruins it. Be very careful so that the blade doesn't slip and scratch your door.

I then got some 3M double sided automotive tape (part number 06384) at O'Reaily auto pats and applied two strips of it (side by side) to the back of the new trim and placed it on the car. The way the black plastic on the door is molded, it's easy to play it right, in fact it would be pretty hard to screw it up... it fits like a glove (do a dry run without tape first and you'll see what I mean).

The trim piece was just about $50 at Parktown Porsche in St. Louis.

NOTE: I did not realize mine was coming loose, and the clearance against the front door is really, really narrow. When the piece came loose enough, it caught on the front door scratching it's trim piece too. So, if you notice it loose at the end of it, it's best to just go ahead and replace it.
