What condition is the rear left and right side glass rubber? Also i need the drivers side fog lamp housing.
Rear glass rubber is bad, like they all are. I didn’t see your message until after I left, so the fog lamp housing will have to wait until next time I am back there, possibly next week.

Lol what is up with the rear glass rubber on MX6s. Are they made of sugar or something. All the ones i have seen in yards including mine are toast and dissolving away. But anyway yeah just lmk when you get a chance to check on the drivers side fog light. If there is no rust on the hardware and its clean/not cracked ill take it.

i sort of fixed the rear side trim by first sanding down the roughest areas, and then painting over it with a satin black enamel. then sand some more, then another coat. repeat until it is smooth, and I also made sure to tape over the glass and paint so just the trim gets sanded / painted. It didn't really fix the underlying problem but it looked a bit better from a distance at least.

no real rust underneath anywhere, and it never took a front end hit, so i am confident the fog light housing and hardware is still in good shape.

Got t View attachment 13868 hem off. They look good. I couldn’t cut the wiring that far back because the wiring harness is a fat bundle and I didn’t have the type of cutter big enough to cut into it. Also there is a chance I might have to limp my car to a different location at some point and I didn’t want to completely disable it.

got it off finally. That was a real pita to do! It was double stick taped and there are machine screws at both ends and a stud in the middle tightened with a flange nut and a pile of washers. Kind of weird. I think this was a dealer installed add-on and not a factory installed part. For your reference and anyone else who might be interested in getting one of these, I took a bunch of photos of it front and back, along with some pics of the trunk to show where the bolt holes go. Here is the link:

Condition isn’t the greatest. Lots of cracking in the finish and some gouges that had been painted over. It will need refurbishing.
Hey sorry! I just got your message now! That’s awesome!

Sounds good. I will let you know when I get the parts off.
I also need one of the rubber bump stops. But how aboit $50 shipped to me? Saves me a trip to the yard for sure.
At the car. Found out there are no rubber bump stops in the trunk, but the rubber trunk liner is good. IMO The bump stops are redundant and not really necessary if the rubber liner and the struts are there. The fog light came off easily since I had already taken the headlights off, so the nuts were easy to get to. It is in good shape.
