CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT
Use the same procedure for the RH side and LH side.
The following procedure is for the LH side.
REMOVE WINDSHIELD OUTSIDE MOULDING
Apply protective tape around the windshield outside moulding as shown in the illustration.
Using a moulding remover, disengage the 2 claws.
Using a moulding remover, disengage the 10 claws and remove the windshield outside moulding as shown in the illustration.
REMOVE WINDSHIELD NO. 1 OUTSIDE MOULDING CLIP
Disengage the 5 claws and remove the 5 windshield No. 1 outside moulding clips.
Insert a 4.0 mm (0.157 in.) drill bit into a drill.
Tape the 4.0 mm (0.157 in.) drill bit 5.0 mm (0.197 in.) from the tip as shown in the illustration.
Tape the 4.0 mm (0.157 in.) drill bit to prevent the drill bit from going too deep.
Lightly press the drill bit against the 5 rivets to drill off the 5 rivet flanges and remove the 5 rivets.
Make sure to protect both the inside and outside of the vehicle as the rivet shavings will fly about.
Pressing the drill too firmly will cause the rivet to turn and result in the rivet not being drilled through.
Prying the rivets with the drill may damage the rivet installation holes or drill bit.
Be careful of the drilled rivets, as they may be hot.
Using a vacuum cleaner, remove the rivet fragments and shavings from the drilled areas.
