    Black triangle with chrome trim on rear of window

    I’m trying to replace the black triangle at the end of the rear windows but I have no idea how to remove it. Anyone know how?

    Just use a plastic pry tool and pop it off. You will break at least two of the posts holding it on though. You can buy replacements from GM. The pieces are call Appliques.

    It doesn't slide forward off the clips like the 2 gen does?

    Mine did not, the orientation of the keyways were all opposed to each other.

    The applique chrome trim is removable, it leaves a small hole though. It can be filled in with an epoxy or plastic. Then you might want to spray paint it a matt black to match the window seals. The drivers door was the cheapest to buy new, but the others were outrageous. What I did was find an LS owner who wanted chrome and swapped.

    EDIT: Actually leaves two small holes
