What is the easiest way to remove the lower windshield moulding on my 69. Do I need to remove it to take off the cowl? Thanx. Sean

You need to remove the cowl to get to the fasteners that hold the molding on. There are 3 or 4 per side attached to clips that slide inside the molding. There is also one fastener at either end under the fender that you access from inside the door jamb. Then the molding sections have to be manuevered out from the edge of the fenders. If your fenders are tight against the windshield then you should apply some masking tape to the fender edge to protect it from scratches and chipping.

No, you can remove the cowl panel and leave the moulding in place. Take off the fasteners on the front edge of the cowl, remove the wipers and nozzle hoses, and you're in business.

You cannot remove the moulding without removing the cowl panel.

If you do need to remove the moulding, remove the cowl and unscrew the clips than hold the moulding under the cowl. Remove the two screws inside the door jamb. Getting the mouulding out without damaging something is a pain.

Question

Are these instructions the same for a convertible? I assume I need to remove that moulding to take the window out which I assume I need to do to replace the dashboard metal? (lot of ASSumptions here)

If your replacing some dash metal then you have to take off the wiper arms, then cowl panel, then windsheild chrome, then the windsheild. You had it right. As mentioned don't forget the fastener in the door jamb for the chrome

Thanx all.

Came off nice and easy, gave me a chance to vacuum out 10 years worth of leaves, and oil my wiper mechanism. Sean

All first generation f-body windshield and cowl proceedures are the same.
