danzee is an unknown quantity at this point
I lost one side of the outer windshield trim (“decorative frame”) on my E34 because the plastic retaining clips had become brittle and broke. Has anyone replaced just the plastic clips without removing the windshield?
After reading lots of posts, I decided I’d like to have a “pro” install the new clips and put the new trim back on. The pro told me he would have to R&R the windshield, with the danger of breaking the windshield in the process.
I’m back to trying a DIY. Now I am trying to figure out what kind of tool to buy or fabricate to make the self-adhesive clip installation go well. I tried one clip without a tool and I can’t get it between the glass and the gasket properly. The new “improved” clip design doesn’t make it any easier either.
Any advice based on experience?
