I can tell you that having the plastic cladding come off in one piece at this age can be problematic - a recent repair to mine on passenger side rear door and rear panel resulted in all new plastic parts being needed there, as they all broke coming off. And this was a professional body shop. I didn't care one way or another, as it was the same deductible regardless, but you will, of course, doing it yourself.

Thank you for caring. My Dad and I were able to take off all the plastic cladding with out a problem from donor car, and that car was 05. So I have all the necessary trim parts. Thanks for sharing.

Glad that worked for you!

If I may ask, what kind of hit did that kind f damage such that the lower control arm broke? And are you sure that the damage is limited to that control arm and sheet metal / plastic cladding?
