Plastic Window Clarification


Recommended Posts

I was reading through past posts about the rear window de-lamination issue. I read a post by Kim on article: 996 convertible top unglued, Unglued where fabric/plastic window meet. The post indicated that a separation of the window, even at the bottom didn't expose the interior to weather.

Is this true? I have been scared to death to take my car out with even a 1% chance of rain, until I can get it fixed.

It would be a lot more convenient if I could drive it for the next month while I save up the money... :unsure:

Thanks,

Brant

I had the same problem with my '99. I drove it around for a while like that and didn't have any problems, though I didn't hit any downpours either.

I replaced my rear window with a sewn-in tinted rear window. This was done by an upholstery shop for $500 over three years ago, and still looks great. Probably much better than having a laminated/glued plastic window put in for over $1500 that will probably just come undone again.

It certainly was true for my MY00 Cab. I drove it for several months while the unglued area became wider, and I looked into a solution. The loose area at the outside bottom of the window resembled a pocket that collected leaves and rainwater .... but none of it came into the interior of the car.
