Re: Windscreen seal instalation

A faily good size thinkness as well as durable that will not break when pressure is applyed as it can make a for a long a messy job...

Somthing like cord for blinds etc ,, that moves easy and will not cut the rubber when fixing into place ...

just try to remember not to much calking compound as it can stop the screen from going in ... but enough to make it seal. As well lap the cord a few feet from end to end to be sure that in dosent jump.
And al ways go from the bottom to top,, is pulls the sceen in and down into postion ,,, Hope i have not confused you much ...

oh year when you see the window guys bang them to settle them into postion thats cos their lazey and like to show off. becareful of chips and stars and crackes etc as they can ruin you day. I gusse you have not done this before as your asking about window string , so it ait a race takre your time and you sholud be sweet. ...

Re: Windscreen seal instalation

Are yes well , hard to place in words but apply the sealer on outer edge away from the lip that will be peeled over ,, resetting it into postion , so yes in the lip that sits driecty around the out side..

Depending on the age of the rubber etc you may have to run the sealer around the inside edge after its been fitted ..

So the window has been flipped over and sat in the hole , grab the cord and pull up wards as to lift the folded part of the rubber so it will just slid in ...

In the past it sounds so easey different makes and models all react diffently.
Most windows on cars now are bonded as stuckural and time saving in the factory.

iIve been out of the trade fo few years now but bit dime a dozen when i was.

Front sreen can be a worrie as most are bye law now all laniated and the wrong presure in the wrong place , Crack thanks for comin.,, rear windows and and the like , boot with the size nine and they fly.

if you think you might make a cock up of it or even a huge mess , which is so easey the the caulking compund, get a window guy to do it its a snack for them and they make it look so blood yeasey it shits yar to tears.

Re: Windscreen seal instalation

would i need someone else to help me or can i do it alone and what do u mean , is it easy to crack the window.
today i took off the locking strip on the rear window to have a look and it seems easy to pull out. iam gonna replace the rear seal coz i have 2 get 2 holes in the parcel shefl weled up and the panel beaters say the window has 2 come off. all up its 30 for each hole and 50 to install the rear window seal sounds cheap to me. the buggers at vic road what rego the car grrrr.
