If the fabric is just loose and not damaged you can re-bond it to the post using a hot steam iron - be careful - not too hot or too long !
Hope this helps good luck.

I had same problem and for an upmarket car it should not happen, but it does, I assume the fabric has come away from the plastic, if so, remove the trim, this is done by pulling the door rubber away from the trim , grasping the trim at the top and gently pulling towards the centre of the windscreen, once the top is free ,pull upwards and its free. The only option now is to remove the fabric completely ( trying to glue it back down will not work) search around fabric shops with the original fabric and purchase as close a match as you can. The next step can be tricky, but with patience a good job can be done. I used very thin double sided sticky tape and covered the trim completely, then with a lot of dexterity covered the trim with the new fabric, taking care to overlap the fabric onto the inside of the trim, this makes for a more secure fit. Hope this helps.

Windshield cleaner/washer fluid is not working


Check that the fluid reservoir is full of windshield wiper fluid and that the pump is not worn out or burnt out. May have to get a new pump and remove and replace to fix this problem. Also, check that the windshield wiper fluid is winter type and not summer type in cold climates.

I ad this problem several times. You can take a long flexable piece of plastic. I use a item you can buy at the fabric store for a couple dollars to thread string through garments. In the front of the sunroof with it open there is a small tube like hole that angles toward the windshield (the piese between windshield and front windows). Put the plastic in those tubes and feed it in as far as you can, this will clear the opening and your problem should be fixed.

My 2009 Grand Caravan's front windshield defrost isn't working


We have a 2008(same body) with the same issue. Just got back from the Dodge dealer and they said "they're all like like that" #@!& Not a good answer as we live in Syracuse NY home of 150inches of snow/season! Last year the right side wiper blade broke off because it kept getting hooked on the ice in that corner of the windshield. Chrysler should offer a fix of some kind because it effects the visibility of the entire windshield and is dangerous!!! The dealer said the other vents (set of 3 squarish ones) are actually for speakers on some models but they are in a lower/better position to heat the bottom of the windsheild and look like they should be able to have warm air run through them.
I think I'm going to double face tape a small strip of black plastic above the current vents to deflect some of the warm air to the lower edge of the windshield.
If anyone else has a better fix please post.
thanks,
Freexing in Syracuse!

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.

Rear windshield


The rear window glass is glued in. This is best left to a glass professional, as the glue type & proceedure is very specific. Why? Because the rear glass, as well as the front glass, performs a secondary function to hold the roof panel somewhat solidly in the case of a roll-over. If the glass is not glued in properly, the event of an accident of this type may not compress the glass at the proper breakage point, which is bad. Best solution: Get a trained glass professional to do it for you.
Sorry to post this type of solution, but this is def a safety issue.
