Windshield Installation

Post by Lance54 » Tue Jul 07, 2020 9:15 pm

My windshield and dash pad are both removed.

What's best for installation....dash pad first or windshield first?

This is a very good question as which ever way you do it, one always makes the other more difficult to do. Logically, the dash pad should go in first as many windscreens would have been replaced over the years without anyone considering to take the crash pad out first.

Also the crash pad tends to be brittle & too much thumping to get the edges under the rubber normally crack it. :D
