Windscreen replacement

Postby centredonkey » Tue Jan 01, 2019 3:44 pm

Happy new year, Folks

Will shortly be replacing the screen in our Bronze, all tips, advice on how to make this as straight forward as poss will be most welcome.

I have done this many years ago on a standard car, we have a good screen and one of Alistair's new rubbers awaiting in the workshop.

Cheers

Wait for a warm day. Plenty of fairy liquid as a lubricant. Good luck.

A couple of specific points to ask...

Any thoughts on where it's best to place the join in the rubber?

Any need for sealant? If so, what type?

Cheers

Colin

From experience I joined on the side A pillar. my logic being that on either the top or the bottom the rainwater would collect and possibly run in, on the side it would run past and have less chance of leaking. You shouldn't need to use sealant but I have used rubber adhesive from a cycle repair kit to bond the ends.
