Windshield Separating From Its Rubber Seal
Posted 29 December 2012 - 06:54 PM
I have an open gap at the lower corners of my windshields, about 6-8" in length and as much as 1/4 inch in width. It might have been from exposure to the heat experienced in Mexico?
Not sure how to approach repairing it. Should I attempt it or go to a glass shop?
If anyone has a recommendation of a good and reasonable glass shop in the Santa Rosa, CA area,or within 100 miles, please recommend.
Don't know if windshield has to be completely removed or if there is a method for me to get things back in order without removal of glass?

The way I have mine repaired is to have the windshield removed and replaced. (R an R) The cost out of pocket for me has been $100.00 to remove and replace the windshield using the same seal. This is on a coach with a split windshield.
The seals can dry out over time and become stiff. Some times the opening is a little over sized and the seals will slowly separate from the fiberglass as the coach flexes.
A good glass shop should be able to give you a good idea, on how to fix the opening.
