Hi all,

I'd like to remove and replace the trims from the screen and tailgate.

How are they fixed on?

The front screen appears to my eye to be a bonded type, as opposed to the 'normal' rubber-mounted
on the late cars. The rear appears to be similar to the front.

Cheers
Nige

The trims are bonded onto the glass. After the screens are bonded into the car. Or at least that’s how my cars have been, presumably factory.
It can be tricky removing the trim without damaging the paintwork. If the trim bonding is starting to degrade and come a bit loose you might be able to use the ‘dental floss trick’ used to remove badges from bodywork.

Good luck

Thanks Ian.
 I'll try the rear one first and see what happens!

Cheers,
