Replacing Front Windshield 1986 Volvo 740?
Ok Guys/Girls This Is A 2 Part Question.
First Of All I Need To Know How To Remove A Used Windshield From A Junkyard 740 Volvo Without Cracking It So I May Install It In My Car.(Perticulary The Removal Of The Urathane Adhesive)
And The Second Part Is How Do U Replace The Windshield
If Anyone Can &Quot;Walk&Quot; Me Through This Procedure So To Speak Plse Any Advice Would Help Since Replacement Is Near 500 Bucks And If I Can Atleast Get A Used One Out Its Only 50 For An Auto Glass Shop To Do The Labor
okay cheapo here goes.
First go to a junk yard and get the windshield. they should have one laying around and it will be relatively inexpensive. No more than $100 bux alright? Then Inspect it and make sure the edges are clean of all rubber insulation and debris.
Second.- and here's where you can be cheap and smart at the same time. Okay-
you need a coat wire hanger.
straighten it out.
Sharpen a point on one end and heat this point up with a lighter or torch whatever.
then.. after it glows red hot you insert it into the rubber molding between the windshield and the sheet metal.
Now the other end of wirehanger you are gonna attach a thinner standard copper wire.
you are now gonna pull the wire hanger clear across to the other side making sure you thread the rubber molding. Now it gets fun . you move the wire back and forth back and forth and so on ....until you go completely around the entire windshield. You may need a real long wire to do this and you might ask someone to help you if you need to but you can do this by yourself since I did this also. Do not attempt to lift the windshield until you finish tracing the whole thing. okay. when you are finished tracing it gently push the windshield from the inside out.Be Careful !! Its real heavy. Now you can throw that one out and install the new one.
But first make sure you remove all the excess rubber and adhesive and debris. Then you want to sand the groove a little taking off a little rust, paint, or dirt.
Blow the dirt off and go get your self a new rubber molding and some industrial waterproff adhesive.APPLY the waterproof adhesive stuff and let it dry a little like two minutes. Put the new molding around the new windshield it should fit nice and snug. GENTLY LOWER THE Windshield and place it in its space. Press it into the adhesive in and should be able almost to snap it in the slot. Once its in and its tight you may have to apply anothet bit of that sealant stuff just to make sure it don't leak. Apply thourughly cause at sixty miles an hour in the rain you don't want no whistle or leak. Now when you're sure it set and its nice and dry go ahead and put the stainless cover molding back on Take it to a car wash or hose the beast down to see if leaks. If it doesnt which it shouldnt, Congratulations!!! If it leaks take the stainless cover off and apply more sealant around the outside of the windshield. Apply some on the inside of the windshield too. That should take care of it.
Good luck. It worked on my Volvo.
I had A 760 Turbo Intercooler.
Warranty On Windshield?
I Bought A Brand New Car (Month Old) And I Dont Know How But My Front Windshield Cracked. I Didnt Hit A Rock And Nothing Fell On It (That I Know Of). Would The Dealer Replace It? Does Anyone Know?
I really doubt it but you could ask him, check to see if there are any service bulletins about breaking windshields for your model from the dealer, sometimes there is a piece of spot weld left unfinished in the window channel and when the car hits bumps it could jam into the glass and break it. 36yrs. experience on glass assembly line.
How Much Would It Cost To Get A Front Windshield Replaced?
I Have A 2000 Pontiac Sun Fire Which Is 2 Doors And Not A Convertible. I Want To Know Where The Cheapest Place To Get A Cheap Front Windshield Installed At. I'M Looking Not To Spend More Than 150.00 On It Any Ideas Please Let Me Know Asap
Aside from no one here really knowing, it can depend on factors like where you live and the design shape of the windshield. A few are pricey because of that design shape. Try this question and answer and see how it sounds.
Q: How can I get the least expensive windshield replacement and have some reasonable assurance it will be done properly? Go ask a cop or sheriff deputy who replaces their windshields. They break them all the time and most often use a guy who comes and does it right where the car is parked at home or work. That's because they need to have it done fast. Those guys are cheaper than shops because they don't have a building to pay for. They are also good because the cops/deputies keep using them.
That said, it is not very likely you will get it done for $150. My last one curb side on a small Subaru was $185.00.
Windshield Cracked. Should I Claim It With The Insurance Company?
My Windshield Was Recently Cracked And Its Been Progressively Getting Larger It Is In A Star-Bursts Shape About 8-10Inches . My Insurance Policy Is About To Expire In 5 Days But Have Already Signed A New Policy. So My Question Is Should I Make An Insurance Claim Before My First Policy Expires Or Should I Wait Until The New One Begins?
I Also Have Another Question I Have Recently Noticed That There Is A Small Rust Spot On The Roof Of My Car And Was Wondering If At The Same Time I Was Making A Claim For The Windshield If It Would Be Possible To Make A Claim For The Rust Spot To Be Taken Care Of?
--≫ The Car Is A 2007 Nissan Versa
A crack in the windshield will weaken the glass and should be repaired.
You should really claim for the repair from the insurers who insured your car when the glass was initially damaged, but thats an ethical matter. No-one will know either way.
Generally a rust spot wouldnt be covered though you can of course claim. Some insurers wont charge an Excess for glass repair but they will if bodywork is affected.
