Thanks, needawheel, I appreciate your help. I should have realized that the word "scolding" was not correct. On my part maybe it was TMC (Too Much Coffee) when I wrote that reply. Good idea about getting some extra lugnuts. I may have to go to Phoenix junkyards. There are a couple local ones here, and 3 in Tucson. 2 of the Tucson ones keep inventory and they told me that they have NO Chevy S10 trucks on their lots. The third junkyard did tell me they have one, and I visited it a few months ago, to find it without wheels and raised on supports.

Phoenix is a much larger metropolis and I assume there are many more choices. I need an excuse to drive up there. For me, Tucson is 100 miles NW of us (Interstate 10), and Phoenix is another 100 miles north of there (continuing on Interstate 10)
well in that case just order some in or try to figure out what vehicles use the same lug nuts.

Thanks, needawheel, that is very good to know. Will save me a 400+ mile round trip in case I do go to Phoenix.

Sorry, bktolife, I sent you that conversation opening, which arrived to you out of context. I can explain. I was talking to some other Forum members and the topic of junkyards came up.

I will copy and paste that bit ot Forum talk so you will understand:

needawheel had just recommended that I get a supply of lugnuts at a junkyard, and I replied about availability of junkyards near me. Below is what we were saying

I am really grateful to you about your offer. Someone on the Forum advised me to get some extra lugnuts for my 2003 S10 and they further advised that a junkyard is a good place to get them without paying a fortune from a Chevy dealer for new ones.
. . .
I don't actually seek any extra lugnuts, but when the topic of junkyards came up, I naturally asked more questions, and pretty soon someone suggested asking you.
. . .
I need junkyard help for something completely different. Someone did a midnight parts store job on my S10 and stole the trim at the top edge of the door, which comes in contact with the window, from the passenger side of the truck. I have to replace it or else try to fabricate something. Please see my 2 file attachments to this message. I photographed the driver side trim so you could see what I mean. The other file attachment is a scan from a Chevy dealer showing that I can't buy a new one to replace the one that was stolen. If I want to replace it, it'll be a junkyard. It also shows something strange. The driver side trim is way less expensive than the passenger side trim, although the two parts are made of the same components, simply reverse of each other.
. . .
I may soon be visiting the Phoenix Pull-A-Part and I thank you for referring it. I need that replacement part, because for now the passenger side window is duct taped shut to keep out the rain and dust. Bad side effect is now that window can't be lowered.
. . .
I duct-taped my driver side trim because I don't want to have than one stolen. Looks tacky, but I haven't come up with a better way to make it a little more securely-attached.

That piece isn't water or dust proof, I wouldn't worry about it. I would find a replacement but I wouldn't tape it up, no reason to really.

Get rid of the duct tape pronto. It deteriorates rapidly w/ exterior exposure, and the remaining adhesive residue/ fiber mess is a real PITA to clean up, and even worse on painted surfaces.

OK, will do. Thanks for the advice. I forgot to mention, if the passenger window is rolled partway down, or all the way down, the glass goes out of the track. Raising it back up is difficult. I guess a new plan is remove the window crank. The passenger might forgot to not roll it down, but if there is no crank, they can't roll it down.

It sounds like at some point, you'll need to remove the door panel, and examine the window regulator/ tracks to find the problem.

mine is loose enough to occasionally jump up and down while driving down the highway.
it might be taped down to prevent it from flying off... i can unfortunately see it happening.
My driver side trim piece needed to be pried with a screw driver, to remove it (I experimented, but it was after the passenger side trim had disappeared. Maybe the passenger side was a lot looser. . . And maybe nobody robbed me. Thanks for your info, needawheel.
