How do i separate the old glass from the convertible top on a 2010 mustang


Glass is bonded to top cloth. You must replace entire rear cloth section and sew it to the top. Requires top removal and upholstery sewing machine. Farm this job out.

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.

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.

2000 corvette convertible top rear window came


This is a common problem with many cars. It is delamination. If the window is loose in spots, it can often be repaired with urethane adhesive like glass shops use for windshields. If the glass is more than 30% delaminated, chances of fixing it are slim. With the glass all the way out, you need a new top. Karl at topgunwon.com

2005 MUSTANG COVERTIBLE MY REAR WIDSHIELD GLASS IS FALLING OFF


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.

The rear window for that top is a seperate curtain.
Replacement is best left to a professional.
You should cantact an automotive trim shop (upholstery) for them to quote it.

The way it is replaced, you have to take the top loose, roll it forward, replace the window curtain, reinstall the top. Depending on the condition if the top, it may need replacement also. That is best determined by the shop that does the work.
This is not recommend as a DIY project. I worked in a trim shop for years, and they are not easy.
