SIDE WINDOW GLASS

Removal and Installation

REMOVAL

  1. Remove the Upper pillar finisher. Refer to See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Trim Panel\Service and Repair\Removal And Installation\Coupe.
  2. NOTE: If the side window glass is to be reused, mark the body and the glass with mating marks.

WARNING:
When cutting the glass from the vehicle, always wear safety glasses and heavy gloves to help prevent glass splinters from entering your eyes or cutting your hands.

CAUTION:

  • Be careful not to scratch the glass when removing.
  • Do not set or stand the glass on its edge. Small chips may develop into cracks.
  • When the windshield glass is to be reused, do not use a cutting knife or power cutting tool. After removing moldings, remove the glass using piano wire or power cutting tool (A) and an inflatable pump (B).

  

INSTALLATION
Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

  • Use a genuine Nissan Urethane Adhesive Kit (if available) or equivalent and follow the instructions furnished with it.
  • While the urethane adhesive is curing, open a door window. This will prevent the glass from being forced out by passenger compartment air pressure when a door is closed.
  • Inform the customer that the vehicle should remain stationary until the urethane adhesive has completely cured (preferably 24 hours). Curing time varies with temperature and humidity.

WARNING:

  • Keep heat and open flames away as primers and adhesive are flammable.
  • The materials contained in the kit are harmful if swallowed, and may irritate skin and eyes. Avoid contact with the skin and eyes.
  • Use in an open, well ventilated location. Avoid breathing the vapors. They can be harmful if inhaled. If affected by vapor inhalation, immediately move to an area with fresh air.
  • Driving the vehicle before the urethane adhesive has completely cured may affect the performance of the side window glass in case of an accident.

CAUTION:

  • Do not use an adhesive which is past its usable term. Shelf life of this product is limited to six months after the date of manufacture. Carefully adhere to the expiration or manufacture date printed on the box.
  • Keep primers and adhesive in a cool, dry place. Ideally, they should be stored in a refrigerator.
  • Do not leave primers or adhesive cartridge unattended with their caps open or off.
  • The vehicle should not be driven for at least 24 hours or until the urethane adhesive has completely cured. Curing time varies depending on temperature and humidity. The curing time will increase under lower temperature and lower humidity.
