Glue to use

Post by Kwest364 »



Removed the windshield, adhesive on black rubber piece attached to metal adjuster (that releases when windshield locks go up) was falling off.
What type of adhesive to glue it back on? It's the rubber slider piece that the windshield slides past and that grips it when tightened.

3M weatherstrip adhesive. Put a thin coat on both rubber and metal. It will hold better is you scuff up the metal and then clean it and the rubber. Brake cleaner works good. Make sure you have both pieces aligned. Once cured it will not come off.
Needs to cure for 24 hours.

Any pieces of glide or slide tapes that is shifting, or curling needs replaced. The tape itself is not very expensive. To replace, all the old glue must be removed, which makes "prepping" for new tape labor intensive.

Below is a fishe for a 2010. Parts 7, 8, 9, and 15.
