In Reply to: Windshield Trim Hold down Question??? posted by Forrest 89 750iL on October 13, 2001 at 12:57:23:
It's held solid as a rock ever since. It did take a while to get the duct tape off of my car, though. I'd highly recommend this easy fix over the alternative.

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.
