    I can't seem to find theese clips. The ones i did find don't list a 72 dart. Is it different or is it the same as the years around it Thanks

    These are the metal clips perpendicular to glass surface, as fitted on metal pins and then chrome trim is snapped into place? They are usually checked and/or installed with either window glass. What is wrong with yours? I may suggest you try any popular automotive windshield installation shop. (if this topic was posted and replied to elsewhere then I apologize). Reason I say this is because it has been 11 days since original posting on this page and (surprisingly) NO responses.

    Yes they are the clips to attach the molding to the car.Was wondering if they are all the same.They list all other years other than 72. So i didn't no if they are all the same. Other question ,do they have to go in before the windows. Thanks for the info. Some of the clips have screws holding them in.

    They do go in before the glass and chrome easiest, but they can be added afterwards as long as they don't have to be screwed in. They kind of snap onto the metal pins and then a little spring action keeps them in place. Take an old one down to the auto glass shop and they can match them up.

    Exactly. Only issue may be the over-abundance of that black 'goo' used to seal glass and/or weatherstrip. It will have to be cleared out of the area so clip can be attached. :)

    It doesn't have that black sealant . It has a molded seal which goes around the windows, and the window fits into it. Thats one of the other problems , i can't find anyone that will take the windows out and put them back in . They tell me no guarantee they won't break it.
