In this video we will be showing you how to remove the exterior roof trim from a Nissan 350Z. These pieces are extremely fragile and this video will instruct you on properly removing the trim piece without breaking the rear mounting lip.
The important thing to remember in order to not break yours is that there are several screws under the rubber door seal that secure the piece in place. The trim does not snap or clip in place, it is fastened with screws and one plastic clip.
Remove the exterior B-pillar trim by placing a flat head screwdriver behind it and gently prying out at the top. Then there is one more clip to undo in the middle, once these are out, slide the panel down. (Prying on the lower 2 clips will easily crack them, the middle one is difficult without cracking, that is why we slide it off of the bottom. So if the middle one cracks, you still have the top and bottom, which do 90% of the work.)
Remove the single philips screw behind the B-pillar trim panel.
Remove the interior door trim, this is the long piece that runs along the bottom of the door inside the car. It looks like a snow ski almost. Just pull up on either end and pull it out of it’s 4 fastening points.
Removing the rubber door seal (more of trim than a seal, really) will make the rest of the job easier. It simply sits on a mounting lip, so there’s nothing to worry about breaking and it only goes back in one way. Super easy. You can either completely remove it to make things a lot easier, or just pull it down from the top half of the doorway.
Remove ALL of the philips screws hiding behind the upper rubber door seal. They go from the back near the B-pillar all the way up towards the fender. Double check and make sure you get them all before you start pulling on your roof trim.
Remove the plastic clip in the center, behind the upper door seal. Be very careful as it’s fastened through your roof trim, so don’t be forceful about it coming out.
The silver mounting bracket should fall right out now. Set it aside along with all of your screws.
Unfasten the 5 plastic tabs holding the upper door rubber seal in place (3 in rear, 2 in front), just pull them out with your finger or a screwdriver. Leave them in the rubber so you don’t lose them.
Being extremely careful, put a flathead under the rear of the roof trim (you may want to lay down a rag or something to avoid scratches) and gently pry up until the first clip pops out. Unfasten all of the clips along the length of the trim, all the way up to near the bottom of the windshield.
Pull the trim piece towards the rear of the car to get it off of it’s last mounting tab. This tab does not fasten or have a screw, just slide the trim piece off of it and lift.
There are a couple of small spots where you’ll need to remove the upper seal from the car body. If you try pulling the seal from the trim piece, you definitely will break yours. It’s attached to the trim piece, if you want it off, you have to rip it out before you undo the mounting screws. Keep in mind if you do this, you will ruin your rubber door seal.
Have fun… Please let us know if there are any other Nissan 350Z topics that you need help with.
