Rear Hatch Glass Install....

Recommended Posts

So anyone who has installed this glass, was it a complete and total PITA?


If I try to put it in dry, the friction with the rubber seal is so great that I cannot get it to seat far enough inside the hatch frame for the "string technique" to work getting the seal over the inner frame lip.  If I lube it with detergent/water, it seats inside the frame adequately but then sort of pops out like a watermelon seed...


Out of desperation, I am thinking of using woodworking clamps to hold the glass/seal sufficiently inside the frame while I try to work the seal over the inner lip.


Any hot tips/techniques I am missing?


My hatch is aftermarket carbon fiber....wondering it is simply a bit undersized and hence all the trouble....
