Noises problem
2003 Honda Accord 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Hi,

I had door visors installed on my car, however the tape stpopped working and the driving over bumbs became rattled and noisy. I removed the defective visors but I see that the upper door sash of the door is devastated by the glue adhearing to it. The black overcoad is peeled off and the only way to fix the problem is to replace the door sash on each side of the car. The sash itself only costs 20 dollars hovever replacedment they quoted me 150 per door so I decided to give it a go myself. I noticed on this site detailed instructions with pictures for removal of the back door in 4 door honda model. I was wondering if it was possible to get detailed instractions as to how to remove upper door sash on 2 door model of my 2003 Accord, thanks in advance
