    If everyone could act out this thread very cheesy. It would make a great JC Whitney commercial.

    Also, Eric actually winking at the end with a twinkle would be the clincher!

    haha.

    does two requierd mean that you have to buy two? i only need the driver side. but i guess both would look good. and what is thius bout a rivet? did you take the glass out or just roll it all the way down?

    Yes, one for each side. You may as well replace both since you have to do one.
    You do not have to remove the glass. Roll it all the way down, pull the mirrors, then remove the screw behind the mirror and the quick-nut on the other side.
    You have to "negotiate" with the lower trim to get it out (pull up on it), but it will eventually come out.

    The original dew wipes are stapled into the aluminum window trim. So remove the staples and it comes right off. To reattach correctly, you will need to drill some holes through the dew wipes AND trim, and use pop rivets to attach them together. I've found a cheap but decent pop rivet gun at Wal*Mart before. Shouldn't really need more than 1/8" rivets. When/if you would ever need to change the dew wipes again simply drill out the rivets.

    Default Dew Wipers

    Has anyone found a replacement for the inside "dew wipers"? Mine are just as crispy as the outside ones...like a potato chip.

    As of now, I haven't heard of anybody replacing that piece. I suppose you will have to remove it along with the outside dew wipe and compare them. Then, take a look at the photo in this thread which shows how the new dew wipe is riveted to the trim piece.
    If you can use the same part for both inside and outside, then you're all set. You just have to order four of them.
    Let us know how it turns out.

    I think it can probably be done.
