Today I had a question from a fellow reader about removing the trim around the windshield of his Mustang; the question:
How is the trim around the windshield held in place? Presumably by some sort of clip, but what kind and how to remove the trim without destroying it? Are replacement clips available?
The trim is held in place with molding retainer clips. There are several options for clips depeding on the year of your Ford Mustang and if the clips are for the windshiled or the back window.
1965 Mustang uses the same clip for both the front and rear window Part #: C5ZZ-65423A26-A
How to remove the window trim moldings
Removing the trim requires a Molding Remover, which actually works on the clip to release the molding from its grip. Part #: T-87800; here is a short video demonstrating how the clip works and how to remove the molding.
How to install the molding clips
The method for installation depends on the tools that you have on hand, here is a short video presented by myol66.com on how to remove and install the clips.
