My 98 coupe is 1 piece front door window to back fly out window. All original. I use 3M trim glue to keep it in place. 1 application lasted for 4 yrs now.Yes, it's the outside molding. The new one is different from what is on the car, it's three pieces and the new is one piece. I've had the car for 10 years and it just happened, and it was keep outside.
