Sedan using new molding.

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 2010 for a cleaner removal
and replacement. These clips may also break and should
be replace if broken during removal of the cowl. 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 stand.
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 new windshield.
On this particular 2010
Honda Accord Sedan the new seal Adco Titan Pro 1 is
placed directly onto the new windshield on three sides
and the rest is placed on the old seal along the bottom.
The sealant is placed by using a Triangle Shape Bead
and a power gun for better consistency of placement
onto the new windshield and body. 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 form the sedan. We were able to install a Pilkington
Brand glass with the following part number FW02814GBN
that was made in Mexico. The Pilkington windshield is
a great fit on the Honda Accord in the following year
