Removing/replacing Rear Window Glass Rubber Trim

Recommended Posts

Have anyone has any experience replacing the rubber trim aroud the rear window glass? Someone try to break into my 99 LS400 and had damage the rubber trim on the outside of glass. Is it something that I should take it to the body shop or a do it yourself type?

Thanks.

IMO i wouldn't mess with trying to DIY that type of job.

especially on a 99.

the reason being, you have to get the right seal in there to prevent leaking and such.

some other members might have a different oppinion about this.

you should have comprehension insurance that would cover vandalism--

just 'keyed' paint sometimes can cost $2000.

Most folks have '0' deductable compre--since it hardly cost anymore.

Call your ins. co.

I do have comprehensive insurance with $500 deductible, so I was just exploring the idea of DIY.

as per the '93 service manual: there are 80(EIGHTY) clips[of 3 different types] on the moulding. That is just for upper moulding--not the one between the rear window and the trunk lid.

Think you should go to a glass installer and one experienced with Lexus clips--I have bought some clips from Lexus and they can cost as much as $2. each

ck on the extra cost of 0 deductable-you should be surprised. certainly collision is where you want the $1000+ deductable.
