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.

The rear window for that top is a seperate curtain.
Replacement is best left to a professional.
You should cantact an automotive trim shop (upholstery) for them to quote it.

The way it is replaced, you have to take the top loose, roll it forward, replace the window curtain, reinstall the top. Depending on the condition if the top, it may need replacement also. That is best determined by the shop that does the work.
This is not recommend as a DIY project. I worked in a trim shop for years, and they are not easy.

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.

SOURCE: 2000 corvette convertible top rear window came

This is a common problem with many cars. It is delamination. If the window is loose in spots, it can often be repaired with urethane adhesive like glass shops use for windshields. If the glass is more than 30% delaminated, chances of fixing it are slim. With the glass all the way out, you need a new top. Karl at topgunwon.com

SOURCE: Convertible top has pulled away from glass. would

I have the same problem. I spoke with the dealer, and he tells me that the entire top will have to be replaced. I am not sure why they cannot seal the glass back to the top, but this is what they are telling me. Personally, I am going to try to repair the window myself with the help of a local convertible top guy. There is a TSB (61 08 03 November 18 2008) shows how to replace the clips that hold the headliner to the back glass, not the problem of the glass detaching from the canvas.

Window on 2001 toyota solara "fell" down. What's wrong?


A few possibilities, either the window regulator has broken, or the bracket that holds the glass at the bottom has come loose from the glass. The bracket can pull off the glass, especially with power windows when you're trying to lower the window and it is stuck from freezing or old glass runs that are trapping the window from moving.

re-installing the bracket to the glass is often tricky, and it is easy to shatter the glass. Often best left for a car repair shop or an automotive glass shop to repair.

You will need to remove the door panel to inspect for what the issue is, and then repair it accordingly.

2000 toyota solara. Drivers electric window won't raise sometimes


Door scraper rubbers stiff tripping the motors protective circuit (anti-crush, to stop chopping off fingers, heads etc)

Try cleaning the glass inside and out with household window clear or a White spirit etc then spray silicone spray on a rag, wipe over the glass then try the window operation.

2006 toyota solara, alarm keeps going off


Those cars have a frequency sensor that is attuned to the exact sound frequency of breaking glass. Are there any noises nearby that resemble glass shattering? Wind chimes? Any type of extraneous noise at the freq of glass breakage will set off the alarm.

Rear Window shattered twice


personally, if the glass has shattered twice, i would go to a hardware store and get a piece of plexiglass to replace it with. get a sheet bigger than the factory glass and then cut it to the right size and shape. you don't need any fancy tools, just a jigsaw and some sand paper to smoothe the edges.

Pros: Cons:
alot harder to break than glass low quality plexiglass can yellow in the sun.
about 20X stronger weather stripping can cause streaks or scratches

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?
