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.

Replacing headliner cheap


You need to take all of the hardware that holds the liner up. Take the liner out slowly ,not to damage it. You will have to remove the material and or sponge by hand.(do not peel layers)A good fabric shop will have replacement material. Bring a piece of the old fabric with you to match color of fabric.3M does make a headliner glue sold at a parts house to replace material. Measure liner from front to back ,not side to side. What I am saying is like from the rearview mirror to the back glass. Add at least a foot or two more to measurement. You will have to cut out holes for the hardware after you glue it down to the shell. You will also have to roll the material over the sides and glue the backsides. What I am saying about this is there is no molding where the shell meets the rearview mirror so roll it and glue it to the backside of shell , do the same for the back glass area of the shell. Use care when spraying glue not to get glue on the fabric. When you roll the fabric over and glue it you can hold the fabric down with a folded piece of cardboard held with clothes pins .Replace shell about 8 hrs later. Do not do this on a rainy day ,make sure it is sunny or hot day . Also when you spray the glue spray the shell and the sponge side with glue but do not over saturate the sponge or board that it would seep through the material. Good Luck!

2004 Beetle Convertible, rear window is getting unglued


I had the same problem with the window in my 2003 beetle convertible. I purchased 3m windo-weld super fast A10E2A and single step glass primer A13B5A also 3m. I ordered it online from Auto Body Toolmart. It was very easy to do and is in there really tight. Unlatch the top just enought to release the tension.
1. clean the window and remover any old glue with a razor blade
2. use acetone to make sure the rim around the glass is clean
3. apply thr gass primer and let dry
4. apply the glue which is black so put on a thin bead and I used gloves so I could make sure it was on both the window and also the fabric of the top. You must work fast because it sets up in 15 minutes.
5. Then take blue masking tape and secure the glass by taping all around the top. up and down and from side to side.
6. allow to dry for 6 to 12 hours. the clean off any extra glue with a razor.
The total cost was $39 dollars instead of having to buy a new tp

    I have a 2006 Kia Sorento. The driver side view mirror got cracked in a minor accident. Only the mirror got cracked, but the entire casing is still in-tack. Do I need to replace the whole casing or can I...


    Any shop that replaces windshields can replace just the glass in your mirror usually for around $25-$35. It's not a hard job and it takes about 20 minutes. They might even do a little better on the price if you don't need a receipt. You can do it yourself if you can get the mirror. You need some silicone adhesive, electrical tape and a couple of wood or plastic blocks.Clean all the broken mirror out and clean the glue off in the case. Run a bead of silicone around the inside of the new glass about 1-2 inches from the edge and put a couple of dabs in the center part. If your silicone is too close to the edge, when you press the new mirror on the glue will squeeze out and glue the mirror to the case. Press the new mirror into the case and wrap the electrical tape around the case and over a block on the face of the mirror. You want the tape pulled a little tight so it puts pressure on the glass but not tight enough to break it. Do this on each end of the mirror and leave it for 24 hours, then remove the tape and blocks. Hope this helps.

    The fabric trim on the front door of my 1994 Toyota Camry is coming away from the door. How do I refasten it to the door. It does not appear to be glued. Thanks


    My experience with fabric in cars is it glued onto something if it not sewed. They make a spray on glue made specifically for auto fabric repairs. You spray it behind the fabric, press down the fabric, hold it for a few seconds (as directed) leave it alone overnight and that's it! Good luck!

    Cloth coming away from the rear glass


    I have the same problem with my 4 year old A4 cab, the seal has gradually broken over last 6 months and now the whole right & left sides of the window are exposed - tried glueing it myself with no success.

    Audi tell me it is possible to have the window stitched into the fabric but I assume this involves replacing the original window with a plastic one and therefore losing the option of heated rear window.

    I very much doubt Audi will cover the cost of a new roof once warranty runs out, I find it disappointing (but predictable) that they cannot simply re-seal the fabric to the window.

    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!

    Rear window glass has loosened from the roof


    well I went to Lowes and shopped for a construction adhesive. I picked PL brand Polyurethane Premium Construction Adhesive because it is (so they say) 3 times stronger than ordinary adhesives.
    It is also water and weather proof
    Bonds to wood, metal, stone, concrete, masonry, bricks, vinyl, plastics
    It came in a tube (you know.. chaulking gun style)

    How could it NOT hold glass to fabric??? Thats what I said to myself.. well when we have nothing to lose, we'll try anything.

    I put a good bead about 3/8 of an inch in between the glass and fabric, waited 7 days and then razored the excess off the glass. Applied black permanent marker and I'm done. So, it's been about 2 weeks and it's holding well so far.
    I'm a betting man, but I won't bet this is going to hold... would you?

    there is an arasol glue for heat applications for the fabric of head liners you can pick this up at local parts stores or the hot glue you can use theres also carpet glue if you know how to iron upside down use the carpet glue and an old iron that your going to want to throw away cause carpet glue is a little messy but it holds tight and liquid nails this you will have to find some way to support the area of the headliners while liquid nails adheres to the head liners
