The Correct Way to Install a New Windshield
Installing a new windshield can be quite expensive if you ask a professional mechanic to do it for you. If you're on a tight budget but you wish to replace the damaged windshield of your car right away, all you need to do is follow the instructions below.
Difficulty level: Difficult
What you'll need:
- Putty knife
- Replacement windshield
- Screwdrivers (Flathead and Phillips)
- Rubber mallet
- Windshield sealant
- An assistant
- Piece of cloth
Step 1: Using a screwdriver, remove the windshield wipers. Since the other part of the windshield wipers isn't touching the windshield, there's no need to remove it.
Step 2: Unfasten the clips that hold the windshield molding onto the windshield. Using a flathead screwdriver, pry up the molding from the window.
Step 3: Using either a putty knife or razor, cut the sealant that holds the windshield in place. Do this very carefully because the windshield can get broken if you apply too much pressure. Note: You may need another person to assist you in doing this step.
Step 4: Get inside the car, and carefully remove the old windshield by pushing it away. If you have an assistant, make sure that he or she will be able to hold the old windshield as you push it away. If you don't have an assistant on the other hand, place a big piece of cloth or tarp that would catch the pieces of glass in case the old windshield shatters.
Step 5: Using a putty knife or razor, remove the remaining sealant from the groove where the old windshield was placed.
Step 6: Apply a windshield sealant to the groove where the old windshield was laid in. Make sure to fill sealant to all the cracks.
Step 7: With the help of an assistant, lay the replacement windshield on the groove. Remove any sealant that oozes out of the groove with a piece of cloth rag. Once the windshield is already secured, reinstall the windshield wipers.
Step 8: Using a rubber mallet, reinstall the windshield molding over the windshield.
Once the new windshield is installed, make sure that the doors of your vehicle are open for the next two days. If you fail to close the doors, the pressure from inside the cabin can cause the new windshield to pop out of place.
