      Dear all,

      Thanks for reading this thread. My 2011 CRV had developed some bubbling/bulged window door trim cover pillar posts.
      See the photos.

      Couple of questions here:

      1. I know it was caused by UV, but what's really underneath of these plastic parts? Can these plastic door trim cover pillar posts be easily replaced? If so, what the Honda part# for these door trim cover pillar posts?

      2. I know that there are some aftermarket "6 pieces Black Window Door Trim Cover Pillar Posts" that's on sale on eBay (cost about US$10 or so). If I buy them and want to put them on top of the current bulged door trim cover pillar posts, should I sand the existing ones to smooth them out first, before applying the new ones? Since the new pieces are very thin, my concern is that the new ones may not stick to the surface well if I don't sand the old ones. That said, I tried to sand the existing ones, and they don't seem to be easily smoothed down.

      3. Are putting new window door trim cover pillar posts on top of the existing ones the best solution for this? What are some of the other alternatives to renew these 6 pieces of plastic door trim cover pillar posts?

      Thanks for your help!

      Thanks for everyone's reply. I went to two auto body shops to get a quote and yes, indeed, those are RUST and not caused by UV. Since I live in San Francisco close to Ocean, and I parked my V outside on the street, that's why it developed those rust even though I really tried my best to take care of my V.. :(

      Since those are rust, so I'm thinking of removing those rust first by removing those black tapes with a heat guy first, then use a grinder to sand it down and remove the rust (I don't want them to keep spreading), then prime it and just apply those eBay/Amazon cheap Black Window Door Trim Cover Pillar Posts thing and just call it a day. Just wondering if anyone had done that before and if so can you please share your experience (I'm a newbie DIYer). I'm especially interested to learn what's underneath of those black tapes and how the rust looks like on the door trims, etc. Thanks!

      Here is an youtube video that I found for door pillar trim restore. I'm hoping that I don't have to do such an big job as to cover the entire car etc.
