[xj] Rear Windscreen

Hello Fellow Jaggers
I’ve a problem, I’m in the midst of removing the
glass front and rear. It’s time to paint Kitty, So I need to know
where the wire for the rear defroster is in the rear windscreen, I
don’t want to cut it as I remove the glass. I have looked through
all my books and checked the past post and I find nothing to help
me locate it before cutting, Any help on the subject is much
appreciated.–

You don’t see a simple male-female spade connection at each side of the rear
screen ?

Thanks Doug
What was I thinking! I looked at those and for some reason I
thought they were some sort of holders for the window. I see now,
thanks for making me pay a little more attention. I’ll try and do
better next time! Thanks as usual.–

List:

We got the rear windscreen in place today. I started putting the rubber
insert in place but did not finish.

I guess I should have thought of this before I started the insert, but I was
wondering what the consensus is regarding adding sealant. The factory
manual says to do it, although I doubt they had silicone at the time.

I have GE black silicone and could put it between the glass and rubber
and/or rubber and metal. I would appreciate any opinions.

They used other sealants then, Lou - but the principle is the same; to
seal the interface between rubber/glass and rubber/metal. Due to
manufacturing tolerances and also body flexing they obviously didn’t
quite trust the sealing of the rubber alone…:slight_smile:

One point in this; some hardening silicons are rather sensitive to the
cleanness of the interfaces and may delaminate - defeating the purpose
of sealing…

In reply to a message from Lou Danzico sent Sat 15 May 2010:

I’ve done both front and rear screens, so far no leaks. I’ve
even removed one subsequently for a vinyl roof replacement,
not to difficult but cleanup is a bit slow.

I dry fit, put down masking tape then add sealant to both
sides. Fit spreader as soon as possible and finally remove tape.

Thanks Luke.

Did you use black silicone sealant or something else?

Yes, black silicone sealant was used but I can’t remember
the flavour (any known brand should do).

Well Lou, you should be getting good at getting that
spreader in properly next time. I used to have the correct
spreader tool but it’s long gone. I just use a small flat
screwdriver and a small pair of hook nose pliers… on one
really tight corner I used some Methylated spirit. Not for
drinking of course, that comes later as a good beer and the
satisfaction of a job well done.

Cheers, Luke–
