Installation
1.
Using a utility knife, scrape off and smooth out old adhesives to a thickness of about 2mm (0.08 in.) on the bonding surface around the entire windshield opening flange:
   
Do not scrape down to the painted surface of the body as damaged paint may interfere with proper bonding.
   
Remove the rubber dam and fastereners from the body.
Mask off surrounding surfaces before painting.
2.
Clean the bonding surface with a sponge dampened in alcohol. After cleaning, keep oil, grease and water away from the surface.
3.
After installing the spacer (A), temporarily install the windshield glass (B) by positioning it in the center and place the alignment mark (C).

4.
Peel off the tape from the windshield glass moulding (A) and install the moulding on the windshield glass (B).

5.
With a sponge, apply a light coat of body primer to the original adhesive remaining around the windshield opening flange. Let the body primer dry for at least 10 minutes.
   
Do not apply glass primer to the body, and be careful not to mix up glass and body primer sponges.
Never touch the primed surfaces with your hands.
Mask off the dashboard before painting the flange.

6.
Apply a light coat of glass primer to the outside of the fasteners.
   
The primed surface should never be touched by hand. By doing so, the adhesive may not bond to the glass properly, causing a leakage after the windshield glass is installed.
Do not apply body primer to the glass.
Keep water, dust, and abrasive materials away from the primer.

7.
Pack adhesive into the cartridge without air pockets to ensure continuous delivery. Put the cartridge in a caulking gun, and run a bead of adhesive (B) around the edge of the windshield glass (A) between the fastener and moulding as shown. Apply the adhesive within 30 minutes after applying the glass primer. Make a slightly thicker bead at each corner.

Sealant Bead width
Height : 12 mm (0.4724 in.)
Width : 8 mm (0.3150 in.)

8.
Use suction cups (A) to hold the windshield glass (B) over the opening, align it with the alignment marks (C) as in step 15, and set it down on the adhesive. Lightly push on the windshield until its edges are fully seated on the adhesive all the way around. Do not open or close the doors until the adhesive is dry.

9.
Scrape or wipe the excess adhesive off with a putty knife or towel. To remove adhesive from a painted surface or the windshield, wipe with a soft shop towel dampened with alcohol.
10.
Let the adhesive dry for at least one hour, then spray water over the roof and check for leaks. If a leak occurs, let it dry, then seal with sealant :
Let the vehicle stand for at least four hours after windshield installation. If the vehicle must be driven within 4 hours, it must be driven slowly.
Keep the windshield dry for the first hour after installation.
