So i was driving down 264 on the way back from the beach- and the whole entire peice that sits between the front pillar and the windshield (the decorative like cover up peice that meets the windshieldd to the metal) flew off and is who knows where.

So now. Its gone. and because of this the weather stripping thats on the top of the windshield is now violently flaring in the wind every time i go like over 50mph. I tried everything glueing it back and all.

Until i can order a new peice (anyone know from where?) How can i keep this peice from flyin everywhere and gettin that black gunky glue all over the top of my car.

its annoying.:firemad:

I don't know why I just gave that option... Why don't you go to the part out section of the forum and see if someone will sell you that piece. I'm positive it will be a lot cheaper.

Well, when I got my windshield replaced, the place didn't put them in correctly. I noticed when I was driving on the highway, they caught wind and were trying to fly away, but a few clips kept them on until I was able to get off the highway and clip the rest securely.

Other than that, I don't really know why they would come off.

?? lol. i think you mean the left side.

i wonder what makes them come off?
yeah lol. if they blew off, you most likely had ur windshield replaced at one point. they have to pull those off when replacing and all the tabs break.

yeahh i noticed that all of my windows says HONDA on them except my front one. So i guess that would be why. And i noticed my other one is bowed outwards. maybe off one of the tabs. ill guess ill be fixing that one 2m.

Thanks everyone. Prob gonna be lookin for an OEM Honda Windsheild soon. Just b/c im weird about it. :laughing:

How would you replace the clips? They seem to be pop riveted on. If you got an idea how to take it off, it'll be greatly appreciated so that I may replace the old broken ones.

I'm also interested in how these clips cans be removed... I broke 1 clip and I'm able to pull the trim piece a little bit to get access to the clip, but I don't know how it actually comes off. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I just want to glue the broken smaller piece back to the main clip. Thanks!
