Default '68 rear window front trim moulding removal question

Does this piece pull away from the glass or slide off?? It's OEM and likes it's present location a lot. However, age has taken it's toll and there's minimal rubber left on the moulding. I'd like to replace these pieces but don't want to risk destroying the glass in the process.

I did a cursory search of the archives but didn't find much.

Help ...

Cheers,
Mary Pozzi

Mary, are you talking about the quarter window trim and rubber? At the front of the quarter windows?

If yes, it fits on real tight over a piece of rubber wrapped over the front edge of the glass, and there is a screw at the very bottom that holds it to the window. I searched "quarter window trim" wand got a bunch of threads, but none with a good picture. I will go check the Fisher Body Manual and see if it has anything good.

Yes, that's the piece. I found the screw and that's removed but the fit is very tight. As I'm not reusing it, can I pull it off using force without damaging the glass.

Thanks a bunch in advance for the reply and this will be my project for tomorrow ...

Cheers,

I think I just pulled hard on mine to separate the trim from the window. Maybe yours has been off before, and someone used silicone or something to hold it on. You might try tapping it off by laying a board on the edge and tapping with a hammer. I think the screw holds the quarter window seal to the trim. I don't think it has anything to do with holding the trim to the quarter window to.

rear window front trim. do you have window out of car. spray whole sides of trim with solution of dish soap and water let sit little bit. than start from bottom with a little screw driver from bottom and work slowly up to the top.in car the same but you need like a hook tool to pry easily on window to trim piece.to install put rubber in trim same thing soap solution. clean it up and let dry. install rubber piece in trim and put some weather adhesive in there very sparingly slip onto window and put screw back in making sure it is all the way on window.let sit for a day before moving window.
