windshield replacement


Recommended Posts

Got a brand new windshield with rubber garnish in the shop for the Chief.

 

Plan on updating it's build page and doing a full WS replacement DIY this weekend.

 

Many people say, only let the pros do it, and I agree, especially if you have any doubts about

 

your skills, but if you are careful it can be done with excellent results.

RE: "There is no gasket."

 

So, the newer XJ's rubber perimeter is only a trim and not a seal? If that's

the case, can I just pull off my old pitted and dented metal trim and install

that rubber trim, or does the glass still need to come out? I would be delighted

to be able to just replace metal with rubber trim and not disturb the glass!

Well, you didn't mention in your post that you want to convert from the old trim to the new trim. The new gasket is trim -- the windshield itself is the same part -- but you do have to remove the glass to install the new style gasket.
