What year trim do you have.

They look the same on the outside and the years will interchange as long as you have the correct gasket for the trim you have. The í71/Ď72 shallow trim has a 3/8 lip on it and uses the shallow groove gasket, and the í67/í70 deep trim has a 5/8 lip on it and uses the deep groove gasket. In my experience the gasket with the deep trim is easier to install..... Put the gasket on the glass, then put the trim in the gasket, and install as a unit. You may have to put a few strips of masking tape around it to hold everything together until you are ready to install it.

I wouldn't buy the repo trim. From what I read it doesn't fit too well and makes the windshield almost impossible to install.

Thanks for your perfect answer! I bought (I thought
I did) the rubber for my 5/8 trim. Instead they send
the rubber for the 3/8 trim. So I bought new 5/8
trim. But when we put the window in place
the rubber didnít sealed as it should. There where
a huge gap between the glass and the rubber
not all over but on the side of the passenger
and all underneath. So you might have right when
you said that the new trim and the old rubber donít match.
Itís a long shot, but I will order new trim 3/8 for my
new rubber and try it. Letís hope it will work

I will! Hopefully remind it. It takes at least 3-4 weeks for me to get it from USA.

Re: Windshield trim

Now I got the trim back and the window waiting
to be mounted. I know now what went wrong
(I guess) Thereís a little notch on the top and on
the sides of the rubber thatís need to be just
as the trim ended. Thereís no notch on the
rubber long side (down side). So now I just
wait for someone to help me.
Hope you understand my expression.

I don't remember any notches in any of mine. Two people on the outside and one on the inside has always worked best for me.

Re: Windshield trim

Notch is probably wrong word. If I say increase or elevation. Along the rubber it's a elevation (don't know how to describe in English)
