SOURCE: convertible top

It worked. Still very stuck with no signs of coming loose and I did it about a month ago. Just dont use too much and apply it with a little paint brush like an artist would use. You can always add more, but if you use too much, it will look messy. I used a little much in two places and when it expanded, you could see the yellow foam it makes at the edge of the fabric. But I just shaved it off with a razor blade and it looks fine. After doing the outside, gluing the glass to the fabric, i also glued the headliner in place as well. I lowered the top a few inches to take the pressure off, and put just a little glue in the track around the inside of the window, then put the edge of the headliner in the track. Left it overnight and it has not come loose since. I think getting this headliner reattached is important cause the headliner actually pulls the glass against the fabric top, which takes pressure off of the glue holding the window in place. In retrospect, maybe if i had fixed the headliner earlier, the window might not have come unglued in the first place. Shame on VW for not dealing with this issue better. Replacing the entire top is ridiculous!

Unfortunately, this is not something you can fix yourself. You will need to take the car to either the dealer or a shop which specializes in fixing convertible tops, headliners, etc (commonly called an automotive trim shop) Most used car dealers have a trim shop that they can recommend.

The 3.3 no longer has a "spin-on" filter. The filter is now a "cartridge-type", and is housed in a cricular aluminum housing under the engine.

SOURCE: convertible rear window separated from fabric top

This problem is very common and is known as delamination.
Use Urethane adhesive to reglue the window.
This same adhesive is used to install windshields.
The hard part will be to hold the window in place till the Urethane cures.
Prepare for that in advance.

Have a dealer service the airbag system as they have a shelf life and most likely that is causing it to trigger (alot like service lights on newer cars).

How do i separate the old glass from the convertible top on a 2010 mustang


Glass is bonded to top cloth. You must replace entire rear cloth section and sew it to the top. Requires top removal and upholstery sewing machine. Farm this job out.

take the vehicle to an accredited windscreen repairer/ replacer and discuss the problem with them. If it can be done they will have access to the glass and will be able to tell you where to get it fitted if it requires specialist attention.

2007 solara convertible got wet from roof open all radio 'not jbl' functions seem to work cd everything no sound . could a fuse have blown if so where?


If you have functions but no sound, its unlikely that there will be a separate fuse for the factory external amplifier. Have your owners manual? It has an appendix with a page number to the relevant fuse locations

Convertible top coming away from glass window


This is a common problem. At the factory, the top material is bonded to the glass. That bond is breaking down. You can use Gorilla taps or urethane adhesive, but you will eventually need a new window unit.
The window unit is separate from the actual top. The top must be partially removed to replace the window unit.

2005 MUSTANG COVERTIBLE MY REAR WIDSHIELD GLASS IS FALLING OFF


This problem is very common and is known as delamination.
If the problem is not too far advanced, you can repair it with Urethane adhesive. It is used by glass shops to install windshields.
Your top and window unit are two separate parts.
If the problem is beyond repair, you will need to remove the rear half of the top and replace the window unit.

2005 toyota solara convertible rear window defroster


2006 Solara Comvertible - same problem as everyone else. The defroster just stopped working (well, 2 lines in the upper portion work somewhat) several months back. The light comes on and obviously power is there since 2 of the lines do something. The dealer also told me the WHOLE top would have to be replaced...thousands of dollars. I thought I might have to replace the window but apparently that can't even be done. They actually told me a repair kit exists to do it yourself at Pep Boys, yet they won't attempt to fix. Pep Boys confirmed kit exists but won't tounch it either, Window replacement company won't either. So, again the consumer is screwed, I guess. Obviously if those paid to do mechanical work can't or won't do it, why would a novice be able to? I am so angry! No more Toyotas for me. My buying experience was a whole other story that turned me off from this car to start with. Probably when someone gets killed, they will be forced to look at this. Convertibles are notorious for poor visibility in the rear and now with the windshield completely frosted or covered with snow and iced while driving due to the weather conditions, it is UNSAFE! Is there any help for this problem?
