As I was waxing my car on Saturday, I saw the windshield trim along the A-pillar is coming apart on both sides. I finally took a pic of it today. The one I posted is the worst. It looks like it's coming apart in small pieces. Wonder how much it costs to get them replaced? This is the first wear and tear issue I've had with the car. But I've never experienced this particular problem with any vehicle I have ever owned.

It just slides out. Just start at the top. You may want to use a screwdriver to move it a bit. You can then give it a tug but it should slide out easily.

I've instructions on this. It's pretty easy. They were posted either here or the other board.

Mine are falling apart also. Did you buy just the reveal molding for each side? The parts site I was looking at had both the molding and the molding retainer. Did you need the retainer also?

I haven't put them on yet,but I got a new pair of moldings for just over 20 bucks or so. Mine are in bad shape. My lower window moldings are shot too. I'm buying them before too long also.

I'm more worried about the windshield appearing to delaminate.

I called my dealer yesterday and they can order them for a few dollars more than online. I will get them sooner and about the same price by the time I add in shipping. I will have them Tuesday.

When I did mine I just pulled out the old molding and in with the new. Took about 2 minutes a side.

I just had to have my windshield replaced, and there's a couple of plastic tabs that hold them in. It looked fairly simple to remove.
