Convertible Vehicles - Rear window needs help.
05-23-2011, 01:14 PM
I posted awhile ago about this and searched and came up with nothing. My rear window is detached from the top and I need to know what to use to re-adhere to window to the top. It's only detactched on the bottom, the other 3 sides are fine thank god. Any help is greatly appreciated. P.S. it blows cuz no glass companies will even try and fix it:mad:

I used bally and its been holding up fine for the last 5 years lol , and my window was completely fallen off.. its your top is beat , change it completely, or you can get the part of the window by itself and replace it.. however glue has been holding on just fine for me , I hope it will hold up a bit more till I can replace the top.

I had a tan top on my red vert with the same issue. I ordered up a black top and never looked back ($900 installed, EZ-on top). I get compliments all the time now. The black top made a huge difference in appearance and the window doesn't leak. I was told that the glue used around the rear window on the aftermarket tops is not as likely to degrade like the old factory tops.

I've used 3M Window Weld to seal up where my rear window is trying to detach. It'll give me some more use out of the original top before I have to pop for a new one. Available at any auto parts store.

Thanks guys I appreciate the help. I picked up some 3m stuff so I'll give that a shot in the next few days, if I can find a minute. The bitch is gonna be getting it to stretch back onto the window. Ill let ya know how I make out:chug:

Update: I used the 3m adhesive cleaner to prep everything and 3m window adhesive and it seems like a great seal. I let it sit and cure over night so when I get home today I gotta bolt the frame back in place and see what the finished product looks like. There was a little adhesive that got squeezed out and is visible but it should be an easy clean up.
