CS window trim.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I want to remove the black window trim that goes around the top/bottom sides of the rear glass and doors on the 88-93 CS International coupes.  I need to remove the nice ones from my 89 parts car to use on my 91 International coupe.  Are there any tricks to doing this?  I obviously don't want to damage them.  I'd like to remove the large piece of trim that runs between the rear glass and the quarter panel window glass also.  Any ideas would be great, thank you!

I've never touched trim on a CS coupe. I've removed all the trim on my 94 CSC at some point or another. Look for small bolts or screws first. Then carefully pry by hand and check for movement.

These might have adhesive on them. You might want to look into trim removals tools so nothing gets damaged. 

These arent easy to find pieces.

Does that help? Let me know if you need anything else!

That's incredible information, actually a bit overkill.  I don't want to remove the glass, just want to remove the trim around it.  I will look at this more in depth, I also have a body man (friend of mine) who is coming over to help me evaluate how to pull the trim.  Looks like some of it is non reusable like the windshield trim.  That's ok, nothing I can really do about that.  I mainly want to get the belt line pieces and the trim around the door windows, the upper and lower rear glass trim.  Thanks so much for this info.

I might actually have this same book, I need to look in my parts room but this stuff looks familiar.  Never thought about using it as reference, my mistake on my part.

Glad the info helps!



It’s from the GM factory service manual. It is an absolute MUST have if working on these cars! They tell you basically everything you need to know including diagnosing al issues.

They’re dirt cheap now too! Without the manuals my car would not be on the road!

What is the official name of this book? This was great information, can you post a picture of the front cover. I'm going to Hershey 10/11 and I'd like to see about picking one up. My back rear drivers side window leaks into the trunk and I'm needing to know the way to get the trim off so I can re-caulk the side & back window. thx

It's the original Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Service manual.  My cars wiring is from an 89, so I have the 89.  There were changes throughout the years, especially with wiring, that I would highly recommend finding the GM service manual for the make, model and year of your car.  

 

Saying this, there are lots of 89 cutlass supreme manuals on ebay.
