I have a Saturn ion 2 quad coupe. On the front doors, the belt molding (molding at top of door panel, rubbing along window, ) is dry rotted and bubbled up. I found the parts online but, I'm confused as to how to actually replace it and weather or not the parts come with the inside weather stripping attached or if that's separate. Where can I find a full diagram of the door panels or, how do I replace the molding?

Is this the outside molding that attaches to the top of the outter door skin?

You have the inner belt molding at the top of the inner door panel base of the window. Or the outter belt molding at the top of the outter door skin base of the window?

That molding is easy to change open the door you will see a screw holding the molding on opposite side of the mirror. Remove the screw then the molding pops up and slide it out from under the mirror.

No you you just snap the mirror side of the molding down then slide the molding under the mirror then snap the rest of it down. Then put the screw back in its really easy.
