Hey guys,
Any secrets to pulling front windshield and rear window and
replacing seals and re-installing?
Thanks,
Coop

Lots of muscle & WD 40!!!

I cut out the old gaskets with a utility knife & removed the glass. After cleaning the glass, I had my daughter help by holding the new seal while I installed it onto the glass.

Then, a nylon cord was installed in the groove in the seal & three of us installed the windshield & rear glass after lubing the gasket & opening on the body with WD 40. Two held it in position and the other pulled the cord from the inside of the bug to install the gasket in the opening.

We also installed new seals in the 1/4 glass. The "Bad Bug" sure looks better with the new seals, but it was a lot of work!!!

I am tired again just thinking about it...

Make sure the nylon cord is 1/8 inch. It seems to work the best. Any bigger and its hard to pull through, any smaller and it tends to cut the rubber when you pull it. And do be afraid to hose the cord and rubber down the WD40, it all wipes off real easy with windex.
