Hi Folks,

Can anyone tell me which way the windshield side and upper frame external trim retaining clips attach, and then how to get the trim on?

A photo of the clips in place, but without the trim on would be ideal.

I just can't seem to figure out the orientation of the clips that allows the trim to be clipped on.

And do they play any part in holding the windshield in?

Cheers

Peter

Go to about 1:30 and this guy explains the clip. I'll add a pic to my album. I don't think they have anything to do with securing the windshield.

To reinstall, just push in to click in.

Hi Rajeev,

Superb! Thanks.

I really don't think I would have figured that out in a million years!  How is it that the simplest of jobs is always the one that catches you out.

One of the problems I have had is it is now thirteen years ago I started this rebuild, (finances and living in the UK conspire against you) which is before cheap digital cameras made life a whole lot easier to record all these usefull bits of info.

The other is that the clips were so rusted (the car lived in Manchester - 'Rainy City' when it first came over from Florida) only one survived the removal process reasonably intact enough for me see what the original clip looked like never mind how it was installed.

Many Thanks

Peter

if you still need to know where the factory positions were for the clips, i have my windshield trim off so I can show you where they were placed.

If you have pics of the factory position for those clips, send them to me if you don't mind. I am about to start taking mine apart for paint and body work in the Spring
