TR6 Tr6 windshield glass removal

Has anybody removed the windshield glass on a TR6 without cutting the rubber seal around it? I need to replace my front windshield frame and have a relatively new rubber seal on it and would like to reuse the seal. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Terry, do you want to buy a new rubber or windshield??? You can get one or the other out of the frame and if it has not had black sealer injected, you may be able to work it out. Don't use anything metal, (screwdriver) to pry with and start in a top corner with a bunch of wooden wedges(door and window shims) and you might get lucky. If you are paying someone to do it, buy a new rubber.

Thanks Wayne, no I want to move the windshield and seal to another frame. I didn't consider the wooden wedges. I was trying to get it out using some plastic wedges and I was working on the top corner of the windshield. It may be a two person job; I was trying it by myself. I may end up having to purchase another seal. Trying to save some bucks!

Pull the plastic trim piece out and simply push the windshield out the front. I have done it that way a couple times have somebody on the outside to "catch" it. Use soft force spread over a large area. Like hands (or feet). Don't force it, but as I recall it didn't take excessive force to get it done. Might be different if a sealer was used.

P.S. if you have already gotten it started with the wooden wedges it will be even easier.

Terry, we all try and save a buck or two. Wish I had all the money I have saved, but then again, wish I had all the money I had to spend because I broke what ever it was or a spring went bong and no one saw it. LOL

I know what your saying Wayne, I went and ordered another seal, with my luck I would probably break the windshield which cost a lot more than the seal.

I would add on the push it out method that I would put towels or a tarp or something over the hood, but it really doesn't pop out just kind of eazes its way off.

Nothing wrong with trying to save the seal, if it survives and looks good you can use it, if it doesn't you can order a new one. Windshield should be pretty tough just don't use any sharp metal implements in its removal (or re-install).
