The drip rail molding
is removed that sets along the roof and A-pillar prior
to removing the windshield. Special care is taken not
to break any clips that attach to this molding. If any
plastic clips break they should be replaced before reinstalling
the windshield. As you may notice in this slide show
we remove the wipers and cowling. The cowling sits just
under the windshield wipers and above the windshield.
It is almost always best to remove the cowl especially
in the Honda Accord Sedan for a cleaner removal and
replacement. Next the top rubber molding is removed
from the old windshield and discarded. The molding on
this car has a double sided adhesive that will separate
off the windshield once removed. Using the same molding
might be similar to reusing tape from a wrap present.
Used tape will not adhere with the same adhesive properties
as meant by the manufacture. This is the reason why
we use new molding for windshield replacements. Next
the pinchweld around the windshield is dusted, cut out
with profession auto glass tools and placed on a windshield
The area where the auto glass is bonded to the vehicle is cleaned again with filtered water, then dried and trimmed down to 1-2mm thin using the �Full Cut Method.� Any area that may have been nicked or scratch is then primed with Adco UP100 Pinchweld Primer to help prevent future rust from forming. While waiting for the primer to flash or dry which is 10 minutes, the new windshield is prepared for placement. The windshield is cleaned, new molding is installed, all stickers are transferred and two suction cups are placed on the windshield.
On this particular Honda
Accord Sedan the new seal Adco Titan Pro 1 is placed
directly onto the new windshield having only one continuous
bead and a single joint. The sealant is placed by using
a Triangle Shape Bead and a power gun for better consistency
of placement onto the new windshield. We use two people
with suction cups to place the windshield onto the body
of the vehicle for better placement. The parts are then
placed back on the car in the reverse order they were
removed from the sedan. We were able to install PPG
with the DOT 18 Made in the USA on this particular automobile.
