The windshield replacement
for the Honda Ridgeline took about 4 hours to complete
due to the heating element attach to the windshield.
Once the wipers and cowl are removed the windshield
is cut out using auto glass cut-out tools. The speaker
cover and glove box must be removed to reconnect the
new heating elements for the new windshield. Most vehicle
have this wire either behind the A-pillar moldings on
the inside or under the cowl. But on the Honda Ridgeline
it is located under the dash behind the glove box.
The pinchweld is cleaned using filter
water and paper towels to remove any dirt from the area.
We then trim the old seal down to 1-2 mm thin using
the Full Cut Method and prim any nicks or scratches
to help prevent future rust from forming. While the
primer is drying the windshield is cleaned and prepared
by installing dealer molding for a better fit. All stickers
and rear view mirror are transferred to the new windshield.
We use two people to set the windshield for better placement.
After the windshield is installed blue tape is used
to hold the glass in place while curing. Adco Titan
Pro 1 urethane is used on this Honda Ridgeline giving
it a 1 Hour-Safe-Drive-Away-Time. All parts are reinstalled
in reverse order.
