A very nice Mercury Mountaineer SUV that previously  had a poor windshield installation. It   only   took   about   two   minutes   to   glance   around   this   sad   looking   replacement   windshield   installation   to   see   someone   sure   didn’t   know what   they   were   doing.      This   nice   looking   SUV,   not   to   mention   it’s   owner,   had   really   been   put   through   the   ringer.   There   just   wasn’t   any room   left   on   the   pinchweld   to   make   an   attempt   at   sealing   any   of   the   holes   so   the   windshield   had   to   be   removed   and   completely   redone from   top   to   bottom.      Before   we   began   work   on   this   vehicle,   in   an   effort   to   save   the   customer   money,   we   advised   them   to   return   to   the glass   company   that   originally   installed   this   windshield   and   have   them   redo   the   installation   but   the   customer   declined.      They   commented that   they   had   been   through   enough   and   would   never   go   back   and   paying   for   a   whole   new   windshield   installation   was   the   way   they wanted   to   go   and   in   the   end   after   seeing   the   poor   workmanship   on   the   windshield   their   vehicle   endured   we’re   glad   they   didn’t   return   to them.      The   windshield   in   this   vehicle   was   installed   so   poorly   it   was   hard   to   believe.      For   starters   you   can   easily   tell   that   there   were   no primers   used   on   the   pinchweld   by   the   rust   in   the   tool   scratches   and   to   top   it   off   the   windshield   was   carelessly   installed   on   top   of   a broken   piece   of   glass   left   over   from   the   original   windshield   just   below   the   urethane   adhesive   bead.      The   urethane   that   bonds   the windshield   to   the   vehicle   was   applied   in   a   terribly   hap   hazard   manor.      It’s   also   evident   that   there   were   multiple   attempts   taken   to   seal the   leaks   from   the   inside   and   outside   of   the   vehicle   by   the   glass   company   that   originally   installed   it.      Looking   at   all   of   it   and   hearing   the stories   of   events   in   an   effort   to   have   it   fixed   that   the   customer   endured   it   is   no   wonder   they   wouldn’t   return   the   vehicle   to   the   offending company.

You   can   plainly   see   that   the   flange   of   the   windshield   molding   held   the   windshield   from   being   allowed   to   sink   down   to   the   correct   hight within   the   vehicles   pinchweld   flange   causing   the   windshield   to   sit   extremely   elevated   above   the   vehicles   body.   The   thick   lines   at   the   top of   the   moldings   in   photos   1   and   2   are   the   cut   off   top   flange   edge   of   the   molding   that   lap   over   the   cars   body.      We   cut   them   off   to   show exactly   where   it   is   in   elevation   above   the   car   body.      The   molding   should   be   sitting   down   just   barely   above   the   level   of   the   body   the thickness   of   the   top   flange   edge   of   molding.      In   photo   3   you   can   actually   see   the   massively   tall   bead   of   urethane   adhesive   that   was applied   to   compensate   for   the   situation.      The   Monte   Carlo   is   one   the   most   popular   vehicles   in   America   at   the   time   of   this   writing   and   the windshield   molding   on   this   car   and   many   makes   and   models   of   vehicles   just   like   it   are   very   rigid   when   they   are   cold.      They   should   never be   done   in   cold   weather   because   without   an   extremely   warm   windshield,   molding,   adhesive   and   vehicle   the   windshield   absolutely   will not seat properly.  You can find out more information on this issue on our   FAQ Mobile On site Installation Service page.

This   replacement   windshield   installation   looked   great   from   the   outside   but   once   we   removed   the   windshield   we   found   it   was   installed with   enough   urethane   adhesive   for   two   or   more   vehicles   and   it   had   a   large   gapping   hole   in   the   right   hand   bottom   of   the   seal.      We’ve   no idea   how   the   urethane   bead   got   where   it   was   to   create   this   hole   other   then   a   careless   installer   ran   the   bead   like   that   and   didn’t   realize it.  You can actually see the liquid we use to lubricate our cutting tool running out the bottom of the adhesive seal.
