  • Rear glass molding

    I am trying to disassemble the moldings to add silicone for two reasons, one, the crystals creak in unevenness because the silicone is very old and another because water enters the interior through there. The problem is that I am destroying all the moldings because the plastic is very old. Is there a place to get these frames? Any method to remove the moldings without breaking them?


    Thanks!!

      The plastic trim is held in via 2 inch metal clips, so you need to remove the trim at those points but as it's already broken you should buy new from the link I put up. Do not break the glass as the trims can be removed separately

        Thank you very much for the links, but I get that the molding alone is not available, do you know of another website?

          No I don't .You can get it with a tinted glass and keep the glass incase you break it in the future, The glass in not bonded to the trim so it can be removed before fitting
