1990 dodge caravan how to replace the front windshield glass

Please help... My friend just spent a bunch of money on a car that wasn't worth it. I want to replace the front windshield for her. I can get the glass for $50. What else do I need and how do I do it? We got it passed on smog and brake and light check, but it leaks oil. should she just add oil once a week or try replacing the valve cover gasket?? Thanks!!

    That's too bad that your friend's car is having so many problems and also needs to get a new windshield. My car just has a really big scratch across the driver's side of the windshield. It's a really tricky thing to replace, I think. So, we would probably both be better off, in the long run, finding an auto glass place to replace them.

Replacing the windshield is a job best left to a experienced glass tech. the windshield is held in with urethane and has to be applied properly, the windshield is a big part of the vehicles structural strength in the event of an accident. sorry I know you didn't want to hear that but your friends safety should come first. ( if you already have the glass check around and see if a glass shop will install it for you or if a tech will do it on the side.)

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.

Passenger floor gets sopping wet during rain or hosing

You may have a windshield that is leaking due to a small gap in the adhesive that glues the glass to the body. The water will trickle in behind the dash and it can be very difficult if not impossible to pipoint the excact source of the leak. If you can't find it yourself you may need to go to a windshield replacement facility and see if they can help you out. If it turns out that the windshield is leaking you may have to replace it as sometimes they can't be removed without being damaged due to how they are glued in place. Hope this helps out a bit!

How to remove front windshield from a 1996 ,2.4 liter Dodge Carav

There are tools to do this but you are better off having a pro take it off and re install it for you, granted he may charge the same price of almost 200 bucks to do so which is about the cost of a new windshield ( without any heating element in them for defrost) but it will save you grief, otherwise i believe they use a steel wire with two handles to slice the adhesive between the glass and body then they carefully push it out of the frame YOU MAY BREAK YOUR WINDSHIELD DOING THIS IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE.
