Re: Trim issues on my new to me 99 Boxter
I placed 2 or 3 black zipties on the black wind diffusers to hold them in place to avoid the situation you describe. For the clear wind blocker, I have used the velcro tape method which has held up for many years.. I put just the fluffy side of the velcro in the "cradles" the clear blocker slide into on the bottom, that removed all of the rattle noises at speed. I never had the clear glass come out unexpectedly though. If one or both of the top inserts are fouled out, you might have to jury rig something or replace. Autoatlanta has schematics for everthing if you need part #'s.

I cannot comment on the window trim issue.

Either way, welcome to the board. You must post some pics so we can ooh and ah. There is a good degree of knowledge here. Some the the FB communities are good too, but you need to use discretion there. A whole lot of bad information mixed in.
