While driving home on freeway yesterday, the winshield trim on drivers side suddenly blew off and was promptly ran over by a truck. Went to stealer today and purchased a new trim piece($150). Now I have discovered that the little plastic pieces that the trim snaps into have broken tabs(all but two) It appears that I must remove the glass and replace the plastic clips! Has anyone used silicon to hold trim on? I am thinking of a spot of silicon on each plastic holder, put trim in place and tape down for 24 hours.
I really didn't know what it was until I stopped and looked. When it happened,I thought it was a piece of side trim kicked up by car in front of me. I found some stuff called "Pit crews choice" made by Permatex. It claims to be made for re-attaching trim to cars,among other claims. Hope it works. Thanks for advice.
