Hello,

I've got a 99 Europa coming my way and the seller states the upper molding on the windshield is missing/fell off after a windshield replacement. I've purchased the parts on the diagram from Euro Truck Importers and was told the end caps need to be riveted?

Do you recommend this as a DIY or leave it up to the glass pros?'

Any generic pop-rivet gun can do the job, just don't let it bounce and hit your glass or paint

90 goes on with spring clips. 100 snaps into grooves on 90. As for the rest, I would put them on with trim adhesive or black caulk. Less opportunity for damage and you can pull it apart when needed.

Anyone know the correct windshield part # for a 2003 G500?

I'm going to have to replace mine. It has a shaded area behind the rearview mirror, and an antenna that goes up the passenger side of the windshield. I don't think it's heated...?

Also, anyone know if these early MBUSA G500's had the windshield glued in place? Or if it's just slipped into the rubber seal?
