So I'm hoping Nissan still sells the clips for the outer trim around the rear windows. Most of mine broke when I was removing the trim Sad

So done some more searching on this, so the trim I removed is #6, #7, #16, #18



Now apprently you can't buy the clips separately from Nissan What a Face you need to buy the whole trim. So think about that before you remove it. I'll be finding out a price in the next week, so if I'm no longer on the forum I've been murdered by Nissan.

Yeah I know I didn't even think about it much when I took it off. I need to go look if there is a difference in the clips between the upper trim and lower trim. I did a quick search on amayama trading and the uppers are $85.49aus each and the lower trim is $129.01 but they aren't listing a left hand side (that's the one I need).

I had same issue on my maxda 4x4 turbo, took all trims off for full respray & few clip broke or would hold loose if reused.
clips only come with trim & it was shockingly expensive, my only luck was almost all clips same & I only really need 3 strips which were tatty & that gave me enough new clips for all the trims.
You could try salvage some from breakers perhaps. PU40-black can be helpful holding trim on & if used thoughtfully still easily removed again & not messy

So annoying, I was thinking I could get away with using some sikaflex or similar for the time being. I'm so surprised you can't buy the clips separately. Maybe bob might have a few laying around, better than using none at all.

Just for reference the lower trim is easier to remove and doesn't use the same clips as the upper trim. In my case I didn't break anything. I believe Nissan still sells the both upper and lower trim grommets that sit into the body of the car but yet to confirm this.





As for the upper trim these are the bastard clips that will break and you will be forced to swear and wish you never removed them Laughing
