99 american eagle windshield replacement ??
apologies if this has been covered before...
My left windshield came loose. WE knew this glass had been replaced before. Took both loose, removed the non factory urethane from the rubber seal, slid them until closer to where we thought they should be...while attempting to reinstall we discovered the top cap is the wrong shape. Broke the old one. Have a new one. Battle plan is to remove the overhead console, attempt to reinforce/push out the top cap to the proper shape (have taken a pattern of the glass w cardboard cutout) and then reinstall...
Appreciate any advice on removal of ovehead console. It had also previously fell loose and I rescrewed it up, so I understand where the screws are around the border from below but the back attachments(behind the wood trim) behind the seats is hidden??, and if there are any more hidden screws any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Plan to attach some kind of "rib" to the interior of the cap to restore the proper contour probably with urethane...anyone try this?
since none of the electronics up there are relevant to my entertainment system am considering revising overhead console to something different cabinet wise...is this "needed" for strength?
