Cracked molding

Question

On my 98 Grand Prix all the molding under the windows is cracked, faded, falling apart, any suggestions on places to take this to get replaced or if it’s just a DIY thing, where to get this ? I live in L A area, any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks Dabear

Good news, bad news! The only place you can get trim for a GP that year is a GM dealer. A little more than have of the window trim is still available, but that back quarter glass trim is long gone! None of it is cheap either! I bought all that trim a few years back, a year ago I bought two of the rear quarter glass pieces, a front windshield, back glass and the reveal moldings as only the OEM reveal fits properly. 

Your other choice is a salvage yard, which in LA might be ok! A glass shop could probably install it for you if you don’t know how.

Good luck!

That's not terribly surprising that dealers don't have a lot of the less popular parts. In fact, GM is only legally obligated to provide 7 years worth of parts after a particular part or car goes out of production. The fact that a dealer can still get many of the things that Last Indian mention is a good (albeit pricey) thing.
