Sometime close to the end of the 84 production (sometime during the June production dates), the windshield trim design got changed. From 82 - late 84, the top trim & the sides were all metal, starting sometime in June of 84, they switched to plastic pieces on the sides, but the top piece was still metal.
Does anyone have a 82 - 84 TSRM handy that explains how to remove the metal side pieces???
For the plastic ones, it's pretty easy. Unscrew the tiny little phillips head screw that is at the bottom of the trim near the door (you have to open the door to get to this screw). Slide the trim downwards, so that the trim comes off of the retaining clips. Remove the upper corner trim piece, then slide the upper trim piece out (don't pry it off). THEN you can take the windshield off!!!!!!
My windshield leaks. So I found out after parking it on level in heavy rain, wondering why I couldn't get the window the defrost. Low and behold there was a nice layer of water over a good portion of it. =(
