adhesive for glass to hinges?

Postby ross.cheeks » 01 Apr 2007, 21:56

on the chevette the rear quater windows have become detached from the hinges making them drop, i was wondering if there is any type of glue etc that i could use to reattach them to it, dont intend on using them its just so that they arent dropped.

The best thing to do is to fix the windows to the car, and not have them pop out permantely, like some rubbersto stop the bloody hinges popping out. My friend has a genuine HSR and he had the same problem and used the same solution

Urethane windshield adhesive can be used in many ways.

NA ones bolt through holes in the glass, and thoes brackets tend to snap. :(

Lots of Manta owners use those kits for bonding rear view mirrors to windscreens to fix them.

Not had much luck with that myself so I welded mine into a U shape

i've had this same problem and this is how i repaired mine:
1 - go to Maplin and buy this product.

2 - offer up the glass into the required position and mark the glass around the hinges.
3 - scarify inside the marked area with some emery cloth and make sure the area is then free of grime.
4 - clean the hinge area that is going to sit on the glass.
5 - apply the glue within the marked area on the glass and place the hinge on it. hold it in place until the glue has started to take hold then you can do the other hinge. you need direct sunlight to make the glue set and lots of it!!!
6 - once set offer glass into place taking care not to break off the hinges.....job done.

Try this link and it will take you to a German company selling modified brackets and rubbers. They also do the glue as well (2K Epoxy-Klebstoff).

Well would you believe it?
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!
