Fig. Fig. 1: Using a cord to install the rear window

  1. Separate the glass from the weatherstrip.
  2.  

To ease the weatherstrip installation, heat it with a non-flame source heater; at higher temperatures the weatherstrip is more pliable. DO NOT heat it above 125°F (52°C) or for more than 11/2hours.

To install:
  1. Position the rear window glass in the weatherstrip.
  2.  
  3. Using a 1 / 4 in. (6mm) cord, place it in the weatherstrip groove; the ends should overlap 6 in. (152mm) at the bottom of the window.
  4.  
  5. Using soapy water, lubricate the flange and the weatherstrip.
  6.  
  7. Position an assistant inside the cab, install the weatherstrip/glass assembly and have the assistant pull the cord to seat the weatherstrip on the window flange.
  8.  
  9. Apply a light mist of water to the window to check for leaks. If leak(s) are present, use urethane sealant to remedy the problem(s).
