Download 1. Always wear eye and hand protection when working with glass. Make sure you have the right glass and moldings and the urethane systems you are about to use are current. Windshield part numbers are DW1681 and DW1714. 2. Cover the front seats, floorboards, dash and steering wheel with a clean drop cloth or disposable plastic covers. 3. Drape a fender cover over the fender and tape up any vulnerable areas on the vehicle to protect against damage. Tape up the defroster vents to prevent debris from falling into the openings. 4. To remove the rearview mirror, loosen the 20T Torx set screw at the base and slide the mirror off the pad. 5. Remove the windshield-wiper nut covers. 6. Remove the windshield-wiper nuts using a 15-millimeter wrench or socket. Move the wiper arm in an up-and-down motion to break it loose from the post, or use a wiper puller. Note: Wipers can sometimes be hard to remove. Use a wiper puller to avoid stressing the post. 7. Release and remove the four cowl retainers on the cowl panel’s leading edge by prying up the top portion of the retainer and removing the rest. 8. Remove the 15-millimeter ground bolt on the passenger side of the vehicle. It is designed for use when jump- starting the vehicle. 9. Release the approximately six retainers on the underside of the cowl panel fascia. 10. Remove the cowl panel. 11. The underside-style top and side molding resembles a pre-applied adhesive system. Do not, however, treat it the way you would a PAAS-type installation. The part is a molding, not aPAAS, and will come attached to the glass. Note: Beforebeginning windshield removal, verify the new windshield is the correct one and the urethanes and primers arecurrent. Never use outdated products as this could jeopardize the structural integrity of the vehicle and the safety of its passengers. Removal 12. Make sure cutting blades are sufficiently sharp. 13. Before cutting out the windshield, remove contaminants from the glass and pinchweld to prevent contact with the urethane. 14. Use the cutting tools of your choice to remove the glass from the adhesive bead. Note: The glass has sufficient room for you to use a cold knife if you do not need to salvage the moldings. If you use a power tool, lubricate the cutting area with water. Spray the top, sides and bottom; then make your cuts. Caution: Be careful not to hit or cut the gravity stops; mark their location with a marking pencil or retention tape. 15. Take the windshield out of the opening using vacuum cups. Note: Make sure the vacuum cups do not overlap a crack in the glass. 16. Lift the glass and place it on a windshield stand or suitable workstation.
