No idea, looks like they will snap in Place, but perhaps screwed onto the header? I noticed that your window has a lot of what we call "Glass Worms" here in Sweden. I hope that's a reflection and not bad quality…...

Plate clips are mounted in the chrome underside list. Then place the clips at the correct distance and screw the bottom of the header from below

You did a great job on it. Are those pictures from how you first got the car, or of a new project? Another thread that has been made useless by hundreds of broken links.....the reason I don't like using links.
