Hi,


My wife just got her brand new 2016 Coupe EX-T last week. She wanted the windows tinted so we had it done this morning. I go to pick it up and find that they damaged the exterior window trim/molding. It's that black piece that runs from the mirror to the handle, along the weather strip where the window slides into the door. I'll try to attach a photo.


Anyone know how to remove and reinstall one of these?

if its like the 8th gen you will need to remove the door sash (if you open the door it will be the plastic on the outside on the most rear part of the door running from the top to the bottom of the window) the screw will be on the inside part of the door towards the bottom. remove the screw and the sash should pop out a lil bit then you need to slide it up and off(this is of course if it is the same as the 8thgen, so check for any other screws). the damaged piece's end will be exposed where you should be able to pry it straight up off the door. the tricky part is under where it goes behind the mirror. removing the mirror is easier but you could just slide it out from there albeit it will be tough to do. hope this helps man!

You can cover that with these stainless steel bottom door window sill cover trim.

I have a brand new set if you're interested

Don't suppose the window tinting garage is willing to cover the cost of a new trim and installation? Stinks when this happens to a new vehicle.

Wrapping that trim in black will be a good way to go about keeping it OEM looking if you don't want chrome since these days people don't like chrome as much as they used to. But try to get the tint shop to pay for it, it's their fault.
