75 280S Rear Windshield Trim Joint Covers
« on: 01 May 2020, 10:06 AM »
Hello all, can someone tell me the proper locations for the trim joint covers on W116 rear windshield.. does the smooth piece go on top center part and the 2 other pieces go on the side? I have a small ziplock full of them that I removed from parts cars and im about to send car to have windshields installed back and i would like to give the guy just what ge needs as mot to confuse him..tbh i totally forgot how they were on car..i cant seem to find a close up picture on web where i can see the joint covers..

Hi
There are 3. The simple almost flat goes at the top center. The other 2 (identical) with a much more complex inner shape having different channels in profile go on each left/right lower corners.

Hope it helps.

Hopefully these help. From a 75 280S Australian delivered. Although it is opposite to what revilla has?

Nothing like a picture. Thx Nabstud.  Front windshield is the opposite (simple on top center, 2 complex on L/R lower corners). I have the same setup as you.

Cool..so the top has the piece that i guess completes the drain and right side bottom has a smooth piece..on the left side bottom, is it a smooth piece or one like the top piece?
