Default Windshield trim

got the pt# 72752-01G00 For the top rubber piece of The windshield thank you determine the part number of the exploded view for the side pieces side corners and bottom piece.
going to have safe lite replace the windshield I know I want to get a new rubber piece for the top but will they be able to reuse the right and left sides the corners in the bottom? Or will they use some generic piece? they say they can’t tell me until they see the windshield. does anybody know if the trim pieces come in black?

Everything but the top strip is reusable. The sides, bottom, and corner are just trim pieces.

My Pathfinder window was shattered and leaking. The installer used a better upper seal strip. It is much wider than the oem one nissan used. I used one of the nissan ones on my truck and it was shrinking after one summer.

A local business changed mine. It had leaked so long the channel needed some rust repair. They did all the cleanup work and replaced the window for 200 bucks. I will grab a picture in the morning.

i’ve used the oem one, it’s still currently on the truck. it did shrink a bit, in fact when i originally installed it, it was a bit too short. i used some clear caulking cause it didn’t even want to stay in place. i also didn’t get too crazy with cleaning before install.

I had SafeLite change my Nissan OEM windshield 3 yrs. ago and there have been zero issues with mine. The tech made the comment that I had the old style windshield since he had to use the special tool with the wire and hook to cut the OEM sealant. The new windshields have a sealant that allows the technician to simply lift the glass off. He also reinstalled my rear view mirror, and used the “SafeLite” branded foam windshield cleaner, which is fantastic! Gives a serious clean to your glass! It can be bought on Amazon. Good stuff. Total cost for my windshield replacement was 300 bux. Well worth the money.

see and i feel like if you gave the safelite guy the oem stuff he should be able to figure it out, like stated above, i mean that’s what he does for a a living right? i’d still go oem if it were me too.

Not really... often they're (safelite guy) upstarts, (sorta) fly-by-nighters or just looking for the "next job". This is not really a long term career, 'cept for Mgt. It's another franchise....

I prefer to keep this stuff local... as long as you can keep them "responsible" for the work/materials. I do have a reliable/local/small shop for this...

So... what's the age of the EMPs "there"? Hmmmmm...



edit: sorry, I did have a bad experience with a franchise...
