Anyone know how to remove top window glass for E240 or W210?

If you are talking about the roof glass,look
along runners with window back and open.Phillips
or cross head screws should be on both runners.
These all need to be taken out,but mark things on
a diagram when removing,and stick down on it so
they do not roll off.The glass position can be marked
with chalk so you know exactly where it goes,otherwise
it will take for ever to get back in.

How to replace a interior rear view mirror?

if it came unglued from glass which is what it sounds like, any auto parts store should have a special package of "rear view mirror glue or cement" it is on the shelf. it should come with the all important cleaning solution or wipe, but before you clean (scrape with razor blade scraper, glass and bracket )off old glue, mark the position of mirror, do this on inside or outside of glass with tape or a marker. the mirror has a bracket its mounted to, look closely for a set screw and remove bracket, it might be a tiny slotted screw or hex head (allen head ) note position of bracket in relation to mirror because your going to glue the bracket only to the glass at first and when the bracket is upright the mirror will slide down on to bracket, then tighten the set screw! be sure to follow instructions EXACTLY on package of glue. would be a good idea to get two packs, just in case first try goes awry. its cheap!

Sunroof leaks water, how do i fix it?

It's normal for a sunroof to leak a small amount of water past the glass. Although the glass is mounted to brackets, the glass sits in the roof with a weatherstip sealing it. When the vehicle is driven, movement is allowed and rain water will seep past. The channel below the glass has drains in the corners that allow water to flow down a hose and to the lower body. These hoses are routed through the pillars that hold the roof. If one of these draines are plugged the water will back up and overflow out of the channel and into the passenger compartment. Open your sunroof and first check the seal around the glass for nicks, cuts, tears, gaps and correct if neccesary. Then look in the front corners of the roof opening. You will see drain holes. Be sure they are clean. Unfortuantely you can't easily see the rears and the headliner may need to be removed. Sometimes the hoses are plugged with dirt/tar from underneath. Good luck.

How do I close the moon roof on my 94 Lincoln mark viii (8)? The switch is broken. Please help? I'm lost on this one. No. Replacing the switch, and jumping it doesn't work.

look in the glove box ... there should be a crooked allen (hex) wrench in there...
The switch plate should then be popped off and the allen wrench inserted into the crank hole and when you turn the wrench it will crank the roof glass shut...

Recently replaced the battery in my wife's 04 Solara. Now the sunroof will not work "automatically" like it did before. I now have to hold the button, when I only had to press and hold for a second before....

(a) The sliding roof AUTO operation and the jam protection function may not operate normally if the battery
is disconnected/reconnected, replaced or recharged. Initialize the sliding roof system using the method
(1) Turn the ignition switch ON.
(2) Initialize the sliding roof by pressing and holding the TILT UP switch until the roof glass tilts upward
fully (the roof glass automatically tilts downward slightly after fully tilting upward).
(3) Release the switch.
If the battery terminal is disconnected, the moon roof control ECU may not detect the position of the roof
glass. If the sliding roof AUTO operation is still disabled even after the sliding roof drive gear has been initialized,
the hall IC may be malfunctioning. The hall IC is built into the sliding roof drive gear and detects the
roof glass position.
If the result is not as specified, replace the drive gear assy (moon roof control ECU).

The interior rear view mirror fell off on our 2002 Silhouette. How do we re-install?

follow the instructions on the kit you buy, do EXACTLY as they instruct or the mirror will fall off again, get a 3M brand kit or a GM oem kit from the dealer, don't use any junky kits from places like Kragen or Autozone. mark the outside of the windshield with a magic marker before you scape off the old adhesive, after u have the window glass clean then scrape off the adhesive from the mirror pad and lightly sand the metal, make sure you don't touch the mounting surfaces with your fingers, use the viel of accelerator supplied with the kit and apply it to the the glass and mirror pad, let dry for 3 minutes, then apply 2 or 3 drops of adhesive to the mirror pad and firmly press the pad in place, make sure u have it mounted righ side up!!! double check the oreintation before you glue it! do a dry run so to speak, then with adhesive applied press the metal pad onto the glass and hold in place for 3 minutes, this is very important, then let the pad cure for 12 hours before u put the mirror back on, if you follow the instructions u just saved yourself at least $50.00 in labor costs, the kit is around $5.00

Sunroof doesn"t open or close

Section 01-17: Roof Panel, Sliding—Electric 1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Electric Operation The sliding roof panel (502B98):
  • is available as an option.
  • is electrically operated through the accessory delay relay (controlled by generic electronic module (GEM)).
  • is of self-storing design.
  • requires a specific headliner.
  • utilizes a unique roof console and dome lamp.
  • has an air deflector.
The electrical system operates in the following manner:
  • Two switches control movement of the roof panel.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch (15B691) is rocked rearward, the roof sliding outer glass panel (502A82) slides into the storage space between the roof trim panel (51968) and the roof panel, exposing an opening over the front seats.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully back in the storage space, the roof sliding outer glass panel moves forward from the storage position.
  • The rear portion of the roof sliding outer glass panel moves upward on two lifter arms near the end of the forward travel, allowing a weather-tight seal when the roof sliding outer glass panel is closed.
  • An AUTO feature allows the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch to be touched momentarily to cause the roof panel to automatically move to the fully open position.
  • When the TILT roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully forward, the rear of the roof sliding outer glass panel pops up to the VENT position.
  • With the roof sliding outer glass panel in the VENT position, rocking the TILT roof sliding panel switch rearward closes the roof sliding outer glass panel.
  • Sliding Roof Panel Does Not Open or Close
  • Open power feed fuse.
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Damaged roof sliding panel switch.
  • Damaged sliding roof panel motor.

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?
