I think he means the door sills. They just pop out. should only take like 5 seconds to get them out. A flat screw driver might help, but you can just use your hands.

Is this right? are you talking about the gray plastic piece that says celica?

no, I believe he talking about the piece above the armrest, GTS is leather I dunno if GT is. you can take it off and wrap it w/ another kind of fabric, and hot glue or staple the fabric on the back of it to keep it secure

oh, that peice...um. what people do is buy fabric and cut it to the shape they need it. And just jam it in there with a butter knife. Someone who has done it could explain it better. It might be in the install section.

1) Remove OEM door panel from the vehicle and place on a clean work bench.
2) Remove fabric insert with a flat blade screw driver.
3) There will be a foam backing that is glued to the door panel that needs to be removed.

it's prob not worth it, then you might not be able to get it back on.

Really BAD reality TV is the reason I stopped watching MTV.
