('14+) Cowl Side panels broken rattle

Also make sure the glass has not been damaged or cracked at the corner, the covers are difficult to remove and the glass is fragile at these locations.

I recently bought a 2015 FXT touring and noticed the rattle of the cowl side trim pieces and upon inspection see that the clip is broken so they rattle around. Has anyone ordered the new trim pieces and installed themselves? easy to do? I also need to look at them further to determine if i need the clips or if the clip is part of the new cowl. I didn't want to stress them too much to look at it and end up breaking it off further.

Thanks guys

Did anyone have an aftermarket windshield installed on EyeSighted Forester?

I wonder if it will make EyeSight go crazy. The dealer quoted me 900$ installed while independent glass shops are around 350$. When I called the independent shops they all asked me the question: "Does your vehicle have lane departure warning system" so obviously that makes a difference in their decision of which windshield to install.

I can use 600$ elsewhere.

Thank you.
