The sill plate on our brand new Durango needs to be replaced. The Dealer ordered a new one under warrantee. I am hoping to avoid a trip to the dealer, because it is such a hassle for me. (taking off work early, driving almost a hour, burning gas, etc.)
I was thinking of offering to swap it myself. I am sure it is not difficult, if I know the "trick". (where to pry on it, etc.)
Anybody ever remove one of these? (not sure I am using the right term, but it is the plate with Durango stamped in it, where you "step" into the vehicle).
Edit: it was very easy, the assembly can be pried straight up. Attached is photo of the underside.

Mine didnt come with them but im going to be ordering a set, the dealer told me and i also say on the mopar website that they are just held on with 3M adhesive. So i bet you just get out the hair dryer, heat it up and pull it off. Then take some goo gone and remove the excess then reapply the the new one
