Removing rear glass window in a cab

Recommended Posts

Is it easy to remove rear window in a 2003 C2 Cabriolet or impossible? Thinking of getting it tinted due to the insane heat wave we been having and would rather tinting is done with the window removed.

thanks...

I have use in my home a 3-M product that goes outside the window, and installed professionaly still looks perfect after 5 years. These windows are frrom a 2 story room, and take a beating all year from wind, sun, rain, insane birds.

Not sure if they make something like it for automobile use.....

Just tint it from the inside glass. Why need to be removed???? The glass is pretty small so tinting doesn't make that much sense unless you tint the sides too.

To give you an idea of the trouble - the instructions are 7 pages in the service manual.

hmm ok. i thought i saw a zipper when i was installing a SmartTOP - i guess i was wrong.

Have you thought about a car cover?

might be hard to drive with it on. also not sure what the laws around here are on driving with a car cover - i'll have to double check.

:jump: :jump: :jump:

yes i know you mean when i am parked :) the thing is, at home and at work i park in the garage, so that is not an issue. i am more worried about shorter pit stops (food, shopping, etc.) which are usually under 30 minutes. and of course while driving during the day too...

Try this...

Ever since I saw the commercial I was wondering if it did anything at all

http://www.asseenontv.com/prod-pages/autov...gid=AUDIO_VIDEO

And this is the claim, anyways:

"AutoVent SPV silently and efficiently eliminates stale, stuffy air from inside your vehicle, even on the hottest summer days! While your window remain securely closed, this unique solar powered ventilator draws hot air and odors , including pet and tobacco odors, out of your vehicle and replaces it with fresh air form outside. Since AutoVent SPV runs directly on natural, FREE solar energy, there is no drain on your vehicle's battery and there are no batteries to replace or recharge...Ever!

Installation is easy! Simply attach the included weatherproof fitting strips, place the unit on top of the window edge and roll the window closed that's it!

AutoVent SPV helps to preserve and protect your vehicle's interior, valuable stereo and electronic equipment from the damaging effects of extreme heat build-up. AutoVent SPV also assists in reducing the strain on your air conditioning system during start-up."

For the record, I have tried the "Autovent" solar powered fan and it will not work at all behind my tinted windows (my windows are not "limo dark" either). The fit is very poor on my Cab, due to the window groove in the cab top. I definitely don't recommend it.
