Ford F-250 Windshield Replacement Trim Removal
Ford F-250 Windshield Replacement & Trim Removal
Performing a windshield replacement on an F-250 or pretty much any truck will require the trim to be removed before cutting through the rubber seal or urethane. In some cases you may need a custom tool that is designed for removing rivets or metal brackets to get the trim off. However, with the front windshield of a Ford F-250 all you’ll need is a Phillips screw driver.
Since you’ll be dealing with metal trim and tools that are made of metal you’ll want to place a towel or protective car mat along the edge of the windshield. Doing this will protect the truck’s paint and keep you from incurring the expense of any paint touch up should you slip and scratch the hood, fender or any other exposed part of the truck.
Now that you have the different body parts of the truck protected simply follow these couple of steps to complete the trim removal process. First, use the screw driver to loosen the metal trim around the windshield. Once the trim is loose you can partially lift the edge in order to slip the trim removal tool under it and pop it free. If you don’t have a special trim removal tool then a cold knife will work well since it is “L” shaped and thin. Be very careful if you’re using a cold knife since it is made of metal and can damage the paint if you slip during the removal process.
I hope this post was helpful to anyone trying to remove the metal trim when performing a Ford F-250 windshield replacement.
