Windshield frame cover replacement

Has anyone replaced the windshield frame cover on a 2007 Z4? I have ordered one and waiting for it to arrive. Any videos out there? I have tried searching the threads as well as youtube with no luck. Thanks in advance for any help!

I believe there are videos on YT...or at least they used to be. I ultimately just replaced my windshield (which I am happy i did considering how pitted it was), but you may have better luck.

Depending on how "centered" your window is in the opening and how much adhesive was used you may or may not have an easy go of it. It is a crap shoot.

If you have to do any prying whatsoever to get it out use something firm but flexible (a plastic trim removal tool would be good) and DO NOT pry in any way against the edge of the glass or you could be buying a new windshield instead of just replacing the trim.
