Can I ? Windshield

Can I replace the Weather Strip on the Windshield/Windscreen of the 110 without having to replace the glass?

Any special tools needed ? ( and what kind )
Where to buy other than RN? Loco Jorge?

Thanks

Gustavo

P.S. Would like to do the Alpines as well and same questions

Don't know about the windshield (pretty sure it's a different seal but you can replace it easily enough afaik) but see Barry's thread on the alpines. Has link to another thread referencing the tool

You can break a heated screen. Ask me how I know

Getting it out is EASY, putting it in is HARD.

Just pay your glass guy $100 to replace the seal for you. Tdiguy says he does his own, but no way. Alpines and the ones with the two piece seal are easy. Windscreens are not easy (even my glass guy bitched).

You got my cell. I have used this type of seal on series trucks and even "I" can get them to go in (and yes JimC that is without the special tool!)

I always use the nylon rope/grease thing. It has worked for me in the past just fine. Don't know if anyone else has a different method.

Yes, but it is a huge pain in the ass w/o the tool, and takes <5 minutes with the tool.

Two screw drivers work fine in place of the tool.

Well the reason why I need to do this is , I have a galvanized windshield frame and with the new doors and panels green all the way to the top, I would like to paint the frame green as well so I will have to remove the thing to paint ( besides it is craked / dry )

run the rope all the way around the inside of the windshield rubber so it overlaps itself. Get the glass started in the bottom of the rubber. Have someone help you by putting pressure on the glass while you pull the rope. As you pull the rope it will force the rubber over the windshield. Work your way all the way around and your finished.

Your windscreen frame is aluminium, not galvanized steel.

I found the R&R windscreen on the 110 to be the easiest job I have done. The key is to have a piece of cord (clothesline cotton cord) and some KY or like waterbased lube. It took all of five minutes.

I broke mine trying to get it out to paint the frame. Luckily not heated, and it already had a chip which didn't help. Tempted to try the rope trick but don't want to break brand new one too....

The key to removal is to use a boxcutter and cut the gasket all the way through. Then remove what is left after you get the glass out. Reinstalling is a piece of cake.
