spacing blocks in lower windshield molding.
« on: February 13, 2013, 08:41:30 PM »
I did searches on three sites, and can't find this addressed anywhere.

I have four black plastic spacer blocks that came out of my lower windshield molding.  8 lower clips but only four blocks, so I know there isn't one between each pair of clips (that would require 7).

I believe their purpose is to:
1.  Prevent installing the molding too high to insure the clips aren't digging into the glass, possibly starting a crack,
and
2. Spacing the molding slightly away from the cowl vent panel so the molding doesn't scratch.

I am therefore assuming (dangerous) that they just get spaced evenly across the molding.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Any help appreciated.

I spaced them evenly around the lower molding.  Went together well.
I was told there should only be 2.   Oh well, mine now has four.

They are to be located at the ends toward the A-pillar.

Thanks Scott.  I haven't put the rest of the sheet metal on, so may remove and install correctly.
