About two windshield replacements ago, the installer broke 3 of the clips holding top molding to frame. Didn't tell me. Glued it. Now, I have to buy $130 trim piece every time I replace windshield.

Is there a fix for this? My current glass guy says no.

Thanks

This is what I have found while researching parts for my 2011 Army Green/NSSE, color code 6V7.

The reveal molding retainers to upper body/frame are screw in replaceable, 4 each.

The upper molding is reusable if a qualified/competent installer is doing the work and removes it without destroying it.

***The windshield "tech" where I went was wrong when he said that AG was not available, white would have to ordered and sent to a body shop to be color matched. Guesstimate was $300-$500 and maybe 2 weeks turn around time.

The 4 each side corner cowl panel clips do need to be replaced each time. FJC forum Supporting Vendor PUREFJ sells them as a set (per side) ready to go.



If the "A" pillars needs new clips, 5 each side...

And have LEFT & RIGHT facing seals underneath the "A" pillars.

If the spot welded on retainer is pulled off, it'll need to be welded back on by a body shop, sealed and painted. You don't want any pin hole leaks.

The 2 center clips on the top molding broke when I took mine off. They just snap in and out to replace but toyota say they only come with the complete molding $250. A lot for 2 clips but at least you get the complete molding. Does anybody sell the 2 center clips and what is the 5 black adhesive strip on the molding that that glue it to the windshield? Thanks for any help.
