Anyone replaced their "window run?"

The strip that goes from the mirror up the window and down to the base of the window on my car is cracked and rusting. Has anyone replaced these and is it hard to do?

It's not too bad.. but you'll have to take the door cover off on the inside to get to the bolt that holds it in at the front of the door. I poked through the protective sheet to take it out.. or you can remove it. Might help to take your speaker out to get a hand in there too. I can't remember at this moment, but I don't think the rear has a bolt... It can be kinda tricky to get out.. I had to fight with mine a couple minutes cause I didn't want to bust it. Just make sure you got it seated really good and it has tracked back onto the window before you put everything back in.

a black car.

I took mine out when I painted the car. It was freaking easy. After you have the door panel off there are 2 nuts holding the glass to the regulator. Then 2 nuts/bolts holding that trim thing in. You push down on it and slip it out.
