Yes. Just don't do as Bradestar has done. There are a lot of torx visible there and 2 PHILLIPS screws which are not, at the front corners. I missed those screws and fought it a bit to get it out, in a rush. I thought that it had been silicone and/or possibly glued by the previous owner....that is until I heard the craaack!


I tried JB weld plastics, but you can guess how well that worked out. Ö.ended up having to source a whole new insert. Don't forget those two screws!

Default California Top Trim rubber molding #?

Ouch, thanks for sharing! Instead of zip ties I wonder if hose clamps might hold tighter
