How do I remove the windshield trim on a 1994 cougar without damaging it? I need to remove and re glue the windshield due to a leak. I've pulled metal trim off of cars before but they were always older (60s and 70s) and almost always GM. This 94 has me baffled.

SOURCE: Remove lower rear trim beneath tailgate

Easy. First you need to remove the rear splash guards(the plastic pieces located near the tires)
After that, it should be about 6 bolts/clips and they are located in plain view just standing facing the bumper. Then the bumper pulls right out.

Good luck

I asked about how to remove trim over windshield. My question should be can the outside trim over windshield be reused after removing to stop windshield leak.

I don't know about your Mitsubishi but generally windscreen trim is laid loose around the screen and theoretically can be reused. In practice the windscreen adhesive bead usually spreads and catches the trim in places effectively placing an element of doubt over the fact.
If a new trim isn't readily available or is prohibitively expensive, as long as care is taken to leave the visible part undamaged when cutting out the old screen or removing the trim the windscreen adhesive is so good it will bond even damaged trim and can be held securely.

One problem with reusing trim is when attempting to refit it will often be found to be too short. Contaminants from the atmosphere and UV exposure does tend to alter the properties of plastic. Once the trim has been removed shrinkage can sometimes be severe and rapid.

Windscreen water leaks should be none-existent with bonded screens but when windscreens must be replaced the fitters usually manage to scratch the paintwork in the screen recess and have no time or will to repaint. The adhesive bead rarely covers the exposed steel and as the trim is not designed to keep water out rust soon begins to attack and eventually destroys part of the windscreen bond and even sometimes eats through the steel into the windscreen pillar or roof.

How do I fix a leak on the passenger side when it rains

It really helps if you are specific about where it's leaking.

If it's in the windshield, your best bet is have one of the outfits that replaces windshields mobile, come by and pull the windshield and then reglue it.

What often happens is if you have like a flat, your car will be jacked up just to lift that one tire. Cars are all unibody now and it can flex the body and cause the glue that's holding the windshield in place to pop loose. I had that happen. No amount of goop you put on the outside is going to seal it again, I know from personal experience. There's too much trim in the way on the outside and inside. If you like the car and want to keep it, seal that soon or the interior will be trashed in no time.

Windshield leak began on passenger side of front seat area about three months ago....appears to be across top edge...runs down inside of windshield when in rains....truck has been parked outside since...

Windshield leaks are very difficult to stop. Not even pros can get it right all the time.

There is a silicone windshield sealant (Pep Boys) which has a consistency allowing it to "run" down into the holes / cracks -- sometimes this works sometimes it doesn't.

Yes, windshield trim will need to be removed...

And, yes, the light fixture should come off from top of vehicle, and "standard" silicone caulk can be used around that fixture to stop leaks.

How do I fix the fabric on s type windshield post?

I had same problem and for an upmarket car it should not happen, but it does, I assume the fabric has come away from the plastic, if so, remove the trim, this is done by pulling the door rubber away from the trim , grasping the trim at the top and gently pulling towards the centre of the windscreen, once the top is free ,pull upwards and its free. The only option now is to remove the fabric completely ( trying to glue it back down will not work) search around fabric shops with the original fabric and purchase as close a match as you can. The next step can be tricky, but with patience a good job can be done. I used very thin double sided sticky tape and covered the trim completely, then with a lot of dexterity covered the trim with the new fabric, taking care to overlap the fabric onto the inside of the trim, this makes for a more secure fit. Hope this helps.

Passenger floor gets sopping wet during rain or hosing

You may have a windshield that is leaking due to a small gap in the adhesive that glues the glass to the body. The water will trickle in behind the dash and it can be very difficult if not impossible to pipoint the excact source of the leak. If you can't find it yourself you may need to go to a windshield replacement facility and see if they can help you out. If it turns out that the windshield is leaking you may have to replace it as sometimes they can't be removed without being damaged due to how they are glued in place. Hope this helps out a bit!

From the interior side, remove any screws for the armrest, door panel itself, remove window and door and handle if equipt. Remove door strap if present...pop loose the door panel trim or "door panel" and carefully remove without damaging the inside window weatherstripping.
