What glue do I need to use to adhere rear window to convertible top? It is pulling away and I cannot afford a new top just because the glass is pulling away.


You need to cut a small piece of the plastic liner at the bottom. cut about 1/4 inch of just the plastic. not the liner. If you score the plastic half way through then you can snap it off. I put a little glue on the fabric so it does not unravel. THen you need to use a plastic hammer and a piece of wood or plastic and snap the liner back in. It fits in a channel and needs to be snapped in and work your way around until it is all snapped in.

I need to replace the passenger rear window in a 94 chevy cavalier


well these side windows are glued in with a super adhesive that has to be cut, cleaned, and new sealant re-applied. then you place the glass inlet it set for a couple mins, the replace the seal trim.
but be careful as the glass will come out verry hard unless trained to do them.

We just bought my daugher a convertible car but the roof has pulled away from the back window do you know of any way to fix this?


The problem that you are experiencing is common. It is called delamination.
The top and window are two separate parts on this car.
Your best option is to replace the window unit.
You must remove the rear half of the top to do this.
The new window unit will consist of the glass and the material surrounding it. It fastens to the folding frame, not the top. I know, I know you thing that your window is part of the top. It is not.
If the top is showing wear also, I would replace it at the same time.
A cheap repair that SOMETIMES works if the delamination is not too bad is to reglue it with urethane adhesive. Use the same stuff that glass shops use to install windshields.

How do you remove the rear glass on a 1997 dodge dakota. I am in need of replacing my broken glass.


You can start by pulling the interior back by the rear window. There are two tabs on both ends on the bottom frame, you can bend them straight.Try to pull the bottom of the window out and watch out for the hinges to carefully lift up the window itself.

1997 Chevy Cavalier Convertible top not working


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.
