Default Windshield Side Moulding

Driving on the highway today and enough wind must have gotten under the windshield mounding and it came loose popping a few clips off. Reseated it but a few miles down the road it happens again.

I assume it's ok to drive missing that piece until I can get some replacement clips? Just want to make sure In case the moulding was important for waterproofing.

That happened to me once as well, similar scenario...side-wind REALLY howling near the Columbia River Gorge. Came off twice but after the second time I really banged it back on (with the heel of my fist) and that did it. I don't think I'd lost clips.

Mine is popping off 3 clips snapped. Replaced them thought I was good. Next road trip the 2 I didn't replace kept popping. Going to pick up some more clips today.

Generally, replacing all clips with new ones helps fix this. The clips are often one time use. After that, they are too loose. I keep having to pop my lower door trim back on any time I drive through water because the clips are tried and they are the same clips used up there.

Default Previous Owner seemed to have fixed this

My newly acquired 2007 SE seems to have had this problem before. I don't know if they replaced the fasteners, but they did come up with a fix that seems to be working so far.

Jeff

can't seem to turn it upright, but you get the idea.

Mine pops at the top so that one wouldn't do me much good
