Question Windscreen trim

Hi

The black plastic strip down the side of the windscreen is not attached properly on the offside top of my car.... I’ve had a look but cannot see how these detach / re-attach.... anyone got a guide on how to or is it a trip to garage?

Cheers,

S.

Mine are proud by 3-4mm at the top on both sides. You can push them down but they don't stay down. I think they've been like that since I had the windscreen replaced a few years ago. It's irritating but I decided to leave them be for fear of making them worse if I try to mess around with them! I doubt anyone else would notice it to be honest.

If you search online for part number 31214493 and look through pictures of the part it will give you a clue as to how it fixes. I found this:

It looks like it might be a slide out job looking from that! (Grab at the top and then slide lengthways up and over the roof?)

My roof trim was doing this after not being glued down correctly by Autoglass when they changed the screen (broke half the trim fixings as well).

I bought some windscreen silicone glue stuff from Halfords - does what it says on the can. Did this last week and it has been fine.

Removed, adjusted clips and refitted easily enough. Discovered crack in top corner of screen where it looks like the windscreen fitter (it's a replacement screen) has tried to force the trim down, chipped edge of glass and small crack from it across corner of screen 🙄... Anyway it's fitted properly now and the crack isn't visible from inside.

Slide up the A-post about one inch and it lifts off. The trim is two parts pressed together, on mine the plastic wasn't seated properly in the metal rail at the top end, pulled them apart, cleaned and adjusted before putting them back together with a nice tight fit (I crimped each end to be sure)... Now a nice flush fit with no whistling at motorway speed 👍🏻
