Question about 2005 Volkswagen Microbus
There are two types of seals on these busses. if it the american type it has a bead pushed in around the outside, sometime chrome coloured. if it has, pull the bead out.
If not you have saved a step.
From the inside of the bus gently and evenly push the screen out. Have somone with a blanket to recieve the glass "be aware the old original screens are not laminated so you have green house glass coming out so yake care" once out, peal out the ols seal and put with the glass (in the bin).
Get your new seal and fit around your new glass. with the seam at the top.
now is a good time to check the bus for rust, its a common problem to have rust around the windscreen. if there is sort it befor you get leaks. and remove shorp edges to prevent damaging your new seel.
you will need some strong thin rope. about 5mm diameter is good.
with washing up liquid, put the rope around the seel where the metal on the bus will sit. tuck the rope in all the way around and cross over at the bottom of the screen.
you will need you mates again now
if you hold the screen up against the bus and rest the bottom of the seel against the bus. you now use the two ends of the rope.as you pull them the seal lip will lift over the metal of the bus. pull the rope round slowly using a rounded spoon handle to lift over any bits of seel which slip off.
you mates will be out sie persuading the windscreen in by applying even presure down and inwards. when the seel is all the way round you may need to tap the outside of the screen round the outside with your hands to settle the screen in to its new position.
