08 Acura TL Does it need felt?


Recommended Posts

If you're a panel puller, this car has a rubber bumper on all four panels that sucks to remove. It's toward the back of the panel, and when trying to remove the damn things, the spacer it's threaded into starts to turn. You have to take the rubber cap off, and you can force the screw head through the panel. Once the panel is off, you can hold the threaded spacer with a pliers.

I had one of them turn while trying to replace the thing. I had to hold a needle nose behind the panel and hold it just to get the thing tight... sucked.

Otherwise, the panels are easy... same old Acura, with two screws behind the door latch handle, and one behind the door pull handle. Just these bumpers are new to the newer models.
