  • Body / Glass: Hawk trim removal

    Does anyone who has been there and done that know how to remove the three chrome trim pieces at the exterior base of the windshield?

    Yes. 3/8 or 7/16 socket with about three 6ā€ extensions. Way up under the dash. Removing the front seat may help. Small but bright light. Good eyesight. Profanities may help. One of the toughest things to do especially if you are big.

      And, if you have a fiberglass dash with a built in glove box that has a hole cut in the top of it (the glovebox) you'll know that trim has been removed before.

        Removing the wiper drivers helps. On the right side, I recall using an end wrench and 'feel'. You can't see it.

            Thanks guys. I was hoping someone had preceded me in this task and all of your comments are very helpful. Iā€™m taking swearing lessons now so that I can prepare myself for this ordeal šŸ˜«
