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.

Window is separated from the top.The window is not broken. Top is in good shape.


If you are talking that the wound up window glass is not touching on the hood part the you will have to adjust the glass runner to make it do so. This can be done by winding the window down and gently pulling the runner out a bit until it is right or removing the door trim and adjusting the mount blots inside the door.

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.

Glass seperating from convertible top. Top is like brand new and I can't afford a whole new top. Any suggestions? From everything I've read on the web it looks like this car has had this problem alot. ...


Your glass was originally heat sealed to the top material. If the delamination area is small, you may be able to refasten it with urethane adhesive. The same stuff that glass shops use to glue windows to metal. If the delamination has progressed farther than 4-6 inches, you need a new top.
Don't bother with a glass shop, they don't do convertibles. Talk to a convertible top or auto upholstery shop.

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
