Windshield Replacement and Windows

I had the local auto glass shop replace my windshield. After replacement, both driver's and passenger side windows will not go up. According to the glass shop, they put them down just in case the keys should be left inside and get accidentally locked in.

Will a 2002 mercury sable windshield fit in a 2004 ford taurus


No - the part numbers do not cross reference. Though both cars share many of the same parts, the differ many times on body parts. If you are able to install the glass yourself, there are many websites and even brick and mortar supply houses that can get you a windshield fairly economically. If you are thinking of pulling a windshield from a car for free - when it comes to Taurus vs Sable - they are quite different.

Windshield replacement

Some companies will repair a large crack such as your if it does not reach from one edge of the windshield over to another.I would recommend replacement.Most of the time you can see the crack slightly still after the repair and delamination is a possibility later on.check with your insurance company and you may be able to pay a $50 deductible to have it replaced.

The windshield can only be repaired with the sealant
used by an auto glass shop

There is only one procedure for glass replacement &
you can't do it & anything you attempt to add to any place
on the glass will not work

Wait on the glass people to resolve

Weather strip coming off of windshield

You can just add some urethane to secure the weather stripping. If the windshield is ever replaced, they'd simply remove the stripping anyways. Depending on the urethane, there may be different cure times, but it will do the trick. Alternatively, the weather stripping will not affect the seal of the windshield so even if you prefer to remove it, there won't be any issues.

Clicking sound where drivers dash meets window every time you hit a bump

Most likely the sealant has gotten hard and is losing adhesion, the windshield glass is shifting with body flex and chattering on the old sealant. replace windshield or remove and reseal it, should stop it.
Could be if the windshield was replaced a cheap sealant was used. Contact a good windshield replacement company for help or,
excessive body flex might be a previous accident repair done badly, a reputable body shop could tell if it had been repaired, or run a Carfax report on it for the history if unknown. Good luck!

Windshield leaks air after having it replaced

The problem most likely comes from the body of the car being twisted. What needs to be done is to determine what area of the windshield is leaking. This can be done with someone holding a lit cigarette inside of the car. A second person outside of the car with an air hose. Move the air hose around the perimeter of the windshield while following it from the inside with the cigarette careful not to burn the interior. Once you hit the leaking spot the smoke will show you exactly where it is coming from. Now take out the interior panels surrounding the glass. Shoot urethane into the surroundng area of the glass where it leaks. This can be bought at any glass shop. Take a flat tool and spoon the adhesive into the open area. Replace the interior mouldings and do not wash for 48 hrs.
