Rear window is leaking on convertible VW Beetle

The rear window has come loose from the glue that was used the seal off the window to the convertible top. Can the window be re-glued to the top? A new top is over $1,000, and want to make sure that I do not have any other options.

I had the same problem with my garage-kept 03 bug. I went to a place that specializes in auto tops and glass and they sealed mine for $250.

There are puddles on the floor, rear passenger side of my vw jetta (87). I have had the vapor seals replaced on both passenger side doors.


Check the sunroof drains. The vapor panels are hard to make stick. We used to use hot glue and duct tape to help hold on the vapor panals. Check the drains in the doors.

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!
