Removing of wood trim in the door

Hey guys.

In our german jeep community there is no idea about to remove the interior wood trim at the doors at the WH 2005-07 model.

How does it work? I tried to pull it upward and just scratched the wood stuff

In my opinion it is covered at the outer edge by the plastic trim and I am not able to remove the wood only?!

I asked my Jeep dealer for the SRT8 interior trim (silver) but he gave me a price just for the stuff around the transmission, around the A/c control and the front doors of about 3.200$. Wow. Now I wanna change the color by myself.

So I hope u understand my question and feel free to help me :-)
(Here are two pics what I mean: )

The trim in the center pops out. It'll take some force but it'll go. it's seated by pegs in holes. I would assume the doors are the same.

As for changing the color, maybe look into getting them vinyl wrapped in whatever you want. I know there's a shop locally here that did my dad's tahoe's center console "wood" trim that was scratched up with another wood trim and it looked stock to me. Only cost him $40. Dealer prices on parts like that are far too high for me to justify just switching them out for aesthetic purposes.

Re: Removing of wood trim in the door

Oh sorry I guess you misunderstood.
The center ist not the problem. I already wrapped it by myself. Also I changed all lights to LED.
The two problems I have:
1) to get all this out of a SRT8 or Laredo (silver) my dealer wanna have >3.000$ just for four parts...
2) when I wanna wrap my woodtrim at the doors I am not able to get them out.

I'm trying to load up the wkjeeps site but the server is super slow for me. Maybe you have more patience than me. They have been pretty useful in my repair woes for my jeep.

Re: Removing of wood trim in the door

I know this great site.
But it doesn't work like this. You can see it at the pic. Because the upper part is bent to the vehicle inner side I can not pry it up.

You need to lift out the complete switch assembly THEN you can remove the top.

If I remember its best to pop the door panel and release the clips from the underneath.

Re: Removing of wood trim in the door

That 1970's station wagon wood trim they put in these things is almost tragic that looks so much better.

Re: Removing of wood trim in the door

Looks great. I've been contemplating some different vinyl wrap options for my "wood" interior trim as well.
