Trying to seal the back glass on an EM; how do you get this trim piece off?
Posted by: guy63 ()

Can't for the life of me figure out how to remove this piece of trim? I thought that there was a bolt or nut or something, but can't figure out how to get to it?


I'm trying to seal up the back glass by injecting some silicone between the glass and gasket, as that's how water is coming in. I did get a new gasket thinking I'd just replace it, but from what I've heard from folks here is that it would likely leak just as much as the old one, so silicone it is :-)

You should find a nut in the area I've circled. It may be under that bulge in the gasket. Once that's off, you will still need a reveal clip release tool to unhook the other clips along the length of the molding.

I recommend you use windshield sealant instead of silicone. Silicone has acid in it so it's corrosive to steel.

Thanks Craig! I thought I looked all along the gasket for some kind of fastener, but I'll focus on that area again tonight. The sealer I'm using is an automotive windshield sealer I got at NAPA; I'm not actually sure if it's silicone or not, I'll have to check.

Did you lift the gasket? In my '64, one side was exposed and the other side was under the gasket.

Yes, I pulled up to see under the gasket, as I figured if there was a fastener, that's where it would be. I was getting pretty tired by that point; I'll look with fresh eyes tonight.

Thanks!

FWIW, my '60 coupe didn't have a fastener or hole but my '64 did. I thought it was phased in pretty early but maybe it varied by factory.

My 63 had small screws in the upper half of the trim. Prying up gently from the glass edge they can be found. It was a Canadian built car.
I cut the seal out, it was easier to get the screws out.
The 64 manual page 10-16 Back Window side reveal moldings part 3 mentions the screws
