Never mind how it happened.
How do I get that !@#$%$#&$& glass back in the %&*%$%#^* door!!!!????
that's what i said when it happened to me !! them thing's are a pain to put in
well since i have no freaking clue how to put it in. i am going to ask how it happened?
There's a trick with lubing up garden string with Vaseline and using it to fold back the window seal as you pull it through.
Might take it to a body shop and see how they do it the first time.
I have replaced a few in the dozer cab.Got a couple different tools to use from the dealer.Then lubed it up with dawn dishsoap and put the seal in first then started putting in the glass.
Started with the corner and took my time and was real patient thats the key!!!!!!!!!!Then changed over to other tool to interlock the seals edge.That locked the outside in place to hold the glass in.
took two of us two hours! You have to get the seal around the glass then seat it in the frame and then use a butter knife or carefully use a flat head screw driver and slowly work in the seal to the frame. Sucks.
I seem to have a hard time with the same thing during snow removal. A big chunk of snow falls off the back of the bucket and against the window. Never had to push it all back in usually just the bottom. Its even more fun doing it in freezing weather and at night.
This place and you guys are a life-saver. I had been putting this adventure off for a couple days and finally came back to it tonight as I will be harley raking in the next day or two and don't want to do that with no glass.
Did a Google search and found a post on this site from May...
This thread has a link to very good directions with pics and everything. I managed to complete the task in under an hour.
Having this tool really helps...
And now that I have a happy ending I will admit this was self-inflicted... I was laying sod and wanted to move the machine with pallet, which of course can be done with traction lock override... only the pallet was setting on the ground, so I thought I would lower the seat bar, hit the green button, and then raise the pallet slightly so I could move it... of course you can't operate the loader arms with the door open, so you either have to get in and shut the door or disable the safety device... I guess you can figure out which one i did.
I am lucky the glass didn't break and that the door frame was only slightly warped.
Geez. The [messes] I get into by trying to save thirty seconds of effort.
i had to install a new window in the door of my T300 once.
looked to be a challenge at first, but it was like 15min job with two guys
We put the inside seal into place first(making sure the rubber was fitted proberly into door frame).Then opened the outside seal all the way around.
With a little care we installed the glass into the rubber groove (from the outside). From there it was a matter of a little time and patience to get the seal back into place with the help of a small screw driver and windex for lube.Not too bad a job after all
