    How are the bumper posts inserted into the door? On the interior bumper surface is a hole over each post. Is it insert something with a flat surface and push?

    Yes, and it helps to lube the insert first. But be careful, push too hard and it'll break through the rubber....I swear I AM talking about the door bumpers! Seriously, I took a cheapo small phillips screwdriver that fit the bumper hole nicely, cut off the Phillips end, rounded it slightly on a belt sander and it worked well.

    Or just toss them under a heat lamp to soften them up.....both ways work great.

    I use a small flat blade screwdriver.
