Can someone tell me whether or not all Samurai's have the same setup for the windshield? I want to get the Windshiled weather strip for when I replace the front window. The number I got was 724138300 from Suzuki as the part number. Can someone confirm this because they didn't seem so sure.
First, the windshield if it is not already broken, it will break.
Recline the passenger seat and sit in it.
Put your safety glasses on.
Put both feet on the to[ edge of the windshield glass on the right side and push. As the window starts to move , move your foot twards the center of the top and push some more.
This is the way the glass shops do it.
Use a sharp utility knife, cut carefullly all the way around the glass, through the old rubber. Suzuki glued the windshields into these trucks, so once you remove as much rubber as you can, you need to use a solvent to remove the rest of the glue and rubber. You do not need to break the glass to remove it. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
I did it the way AkDale said, but I put some duct tape on both the inside and outside, so no glass fragments got away. Mine was already broken, so I didn't care about how it came out, just that it did. And Zook94 is right about the glue. It can be a pain. I can't help with the solvent though, I just used a dremmel with a wire wheel in it to get it off.
You will need a new seal (weather stripping) either way. Check with Suzuki John. He usually has some cheaper than the dealer. He also sells them on ebay from time to time.
