I have this problem with my Lincoln, too. Although I now suspect you wouldn't be a fan of the clutch.I have discovered a fundamental "problem" with the car. It's almost impossible to drive it slowly
Unfortunately, the rear window trim is actually molded into the glass itself. It's not technically replaceable without doing the window along with it. If you search for "lasagna" you'll find a lot of discussion on the matter. (usually the trim "ripples" before it becomes weather checked. Yours may have skipped this stage.)My rear window seal is all dried out and I need to find trim for it. Does anything that would cover the rubber exist?
