General Installation Issues

To follow are some general installation issues that have been identified by Coach Glass:

*All glue-in fiberglass cap models: In the original engineering process, windshields are installed at the factory in the cap, before the cap is attached to the body. The cap with the installed windshield is then attached to the body. In some cases, the installation requires the cap with the windshields to be either stretched or compressed to fit the body. In these cases, replacement windshields installed after manufacture, including OE windshields, may not fit as well as they should. Other than wet-sanding the edge of the windshields, no remedy has yet been identified for this problem.

*Front Cap Sag: On many two-piece windshield installations, when both windshields are removed at the same time, the top of the front cap will sag. To avoid this problem, we recommend replacing the windshields one at a time. For additional technical assistance about this issue, contact us at (800) 714-7171.

*Gasket Replacement: We recommend replacing only damaged windshield gaskets. Replacing a gasket in good condition unnecessarily adds to the risk of breaking a windshield during the removal and re-installation process.
