Download Vehicle type: Four-door sedan NAGSĀ® numbers*: Windshield part numbers FW2814, solar, third visor, FW2815, solar, FW2816, solar, electrochromatic mirror; front door glass FD23508-09; rear door glass FD23510-11; rear vent glass FV23539-40; and back glass FB23512, solar, heated. Preparation 1. Always wear eye and hand protection when working with glass. Make sure you have the right glass and moldings and the urethane systems you are about to use are current. Windshield part numbers areFW2814, FW2815, and FW2816. 2. Cover the front seats, floorboards, dash and steering wheel with a clean drop cloth or disposable plastic covers. 3. Drape a fender cover over the fender and tape up any vulnerable areas on the vehicle to protect against possible damage. Tape up the defroster vents to prevent debris from falling into the openings. 4. Tap the rear view mirror down and off the mirror pad. 5. Remove the windshield-wiper nut covers. 6. Remove the windshield-wiper nuts using a 17-millimeter wrench or socket. Move the wiper arm in an up-and-down motion to break it loose from the post, or use a wiper puller. Note: Wipers can sometimes be hard to remove. Use a wiper puller to avoid stressing the post. 7. Remove the five retainers on the front leading edge of the cowl panel. The retainers are a lift-up-center, pry-up-base style. 8. Release the five underside retainers by popping them up with your fingers. 9. The A-pillar moldings start at the top of the fender, travel along the roof line and end at the top of the back glass. They are held down by four two-part clip systems that resemble those on older Honda models.
