Are you taking into consideration the thickness of the urethane or butyl the glass will set on?
It does indeed. is this also the case for the bottom of the windshield-even with the edge of the glass? if so man that makes it easy.If you set the windshield in place on the two lower “stops”, it will be fairly evident where the sealant goes.
It should be even with the edge of the glass and may squish out past the edge just a hair when the glass is pressed down into place.
You don’t want a trough behind the edge of the glass for water and debris to collect and you don’t the sealant too far past the glass edge or it will interfere with the trim clips.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for that photo, that helps.Yup, bottom edge is the same.
Just a bit of sealer creeping out from under the glass.
Since there are no trim clips at the bottom, it isn't as critical. You just want a watertight seal.
A professional installed this windshield and I’ve never had any leaks.
I have the same issues with new rubbers and windows but mine misses the seal a similar amount as yours in the centre of the topAnother window question I almost forgot.
I installed new rubber on both drivers and passenger windows. I noticed the rear corner of the drivers window the window isn't pressing against the seal when rolled all the way up. Probably by 1/8" inch.
So what is the right solution to this? Put something behind the seal to bring it out a little more? Raise the window travel a hair? I think they were OER Seals from NPD. Good seals other than noticing this corner.
