These are the clips needed. If people understood how to remove the bezel there would be no issue. You need to push it in and slide to the rear to release the bezel. If you just yank on it or use a trim tool the metal tab will bend or break.

They seem to still be listed by many sites, but I have not tried ot order them in years. If they used them on other models they may still be available.

There was actually a TSB on them.

Toyota service bulletin: REMOVAL OF DOOR LOCK BEZEL

removal of front clip:
(1) push the front of the bezel back to the rear with your hand
(2) lightly pull the bezel away from the door

removal of rear clip:
(1) move the bezel toward the front of the vehicle and pull out
I ordered those clips from Toyota maybe...3-4 years ago.
They were all still available then.

Don't know if they are anymore.
Well I'll be damned. I never knew there was a specific process for removing those beyond the TSRM instruction to "push a tab in and release" which I could never figure out. I could never depress a tab and just had to wiggle it around until it broke free. I'll feel dumb if that tip to push it forward and backward solves it.

Who gets to design the 3d model for that. LOL!
Yeah no joke. Not to mention a couple test fitments. Aw, crap the curvature of pieces 65-183 are wrong, Better adjust and re-print.

I have been trying to justify a good 3d scanner, but really good hand held ones that could do a piece that big are still very expensive.

Hatch Block fresh off the printer with fiberglass reinforcement. It's way stiffer than my previous ones (which were still stiff enough). The default is an extra 8mm of length, but I can modify it to fit whatever's needed to take up the slack in the hatch cable.

Loving this new printer.

Does the Hatch Block work on Pre 89?

I haven't figured out the exact cut-off yet. My 91 has the block. My 90 had the block. I thought my 88 had the block. I bought a used cable from an 89 and it had the block. Another user on SM ( @suprapilot maybe?) has an 89 without the block.

I would advise anyone to double check by removing the center rear hatch trim and looking. It's visible with that one panel removed. That also gives you a chance to check how much slop is in the cable and ensure you buy the best extension. I have 8mm and 12mm listed on the site, but can do any length.
