on my moho, the passenger side fixed window that i must look through to see anything in the side mirror was badly fogged, causing me much grief.
a couple of days before leaving on a planned 2k mile trip my dw and i decided that we must fix this.
i read a report on this forum about removing the inside pane and decided to do that.
i taped a large garbage bag around the bottom of the window.
i taped the whole inside pane with duct tape and used an automatic center punch in the aft lower corner. the whole pane shattered and most of it came out in one piece stuck to the tape.
the hardest part of the job was getting the small jagged pieces of glass out of the window seal. my dw did most of that.
we used black silicon sealant to fill in the seal to window frame area.
after the sealant set up, bar tenders friend, vinegar, and windex cleaned the window nicely. now i can see the mirror nicely.
the outside window is not tinted on my moho. we do not notice any difference in noise or condensation.
we did this mod in may of 2010. there should be a post with pictures in the archives of this forum.
