Wind Deflector (Center Piece) Frame removal

Recommended Posts

Good evening. I purchased a new wind deflector for the center section of my 2004 Boxster. It is just the plastic piece. I need to remove the frame from the existing plastic deflector. Any hints or suggestion on how to remove it? Is it just as simple as running a razor blade along the black frame and deflector to get rid of any glue? 

Thanks

It isn't glued, the plexiglass is snapped into the black frame.  Don't use a razor blade.  You just need to "unsnap" one side, which can be a really difficult, but it can be done, the black frame will bend enough to remove the plexiglass.  You should be able to see the plexiglass where it clips into the frame on each side, and you can pry it out with a flathead screwdriver.  Just be careful the screwdriver doesn't slip and scratch the plexiglass.
