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.

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.

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.

Just got 2001 mustang convertible rear window is loose on right side how can we fix it, also top wont go down I have read answers for top not going down but am consered about window


If the material is loose from the glass, you have a very common problem. Somtimes it can be repaired with urethane adhesive like is used to install windshields.
If that does not work, you must replace the window unit wich is SEPARATE from the top.

1995 Saab 190 convertible, the rear windshield is detached at the top and bottom. It there a way to re attach this properly. The strip the window is supposed to be attached to is torn on the outside but is...


I'm not sure if it is exactly the same problem or not. In my case the glass detached/unglued, on both sides, from the strip that is sewn to the top. I used Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive and Sealant made by ProSeal and purchased at Harbor Freight.

Be careful not use acrylics . Even though they will water proof, they become brittle with temperature changes. You want and adhesive that remains flexible.

Good luck.

Your window is not attached to the top material.
Both the top and the window are attached directly to the frame.

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.

This problem is very common and is known as delamination.
If the problem is not too far advanced, you can repair it with Urethane adhesive. It is used by glass shops to install windshields.
Your top and window unit are two separate parts.
If the problem is beyond repair, you will need to remove the rear half of the top and replace the window unit.
