Removal and Installation


1. Remove front pillar finishers (LH/RH). Refer to INT "FRONT PILLAR FINISHER : Removal and Installation".

2. Partially remove the headlining (front edge). Refer to INT "Removal and Installation".

3. Remove cowl top covers. Refer to EXT "Removal and Installation".

4. Remove glass using piano wire or power cutting tool (A) and an inflatable pump bag (B) after removing moldings.


  • Mark the body and the glass with matching marks if the windshield glass is reused.
  • Apply protective tape around the windshield glass to protect the painted surface from damage.

WARNING: Always wear safety glasses and heavy gloves to help prevent injuries.


  • Be careful not to scratch the glass when removing.
  • Be careful not to set or stand the glass on its edge. Small chips may develop into cracks.


Installation is in reverse order of removal

CAUTION: Be sure the adjustments of front wiper arms stop location. Refer to WW "WIPER ARM : Adjustment".

  • Use a Genuine Nissan Urethane Adhesive Kit (if available) or an equivalent and follow the instructions provided with it.
  • The start and finish of the adhesive application shall be located at the middle of glass bottom to assure watertightness.
  • Open a door window while the urethane adhesive is curing. This prevents the glass from being forced out by passenger room air pressure when all door windows are closed.
  • Inform the customer that the vehicle should remain stationary until the urethane adhesive is completely cured (approximately 24 hours). Curing time varies with temperature and humidity.


  • Keep heat and open flames away as primers and adhesive are flammable.
  • The materials contained in the kit are harmful if swallowed and may irritate skin and eyes. Avoid contact with the skin and eyes.
  • Use in an open, well-ventilated location. Avoid breathing the vapors. They may be harmful if inhaled. Move immediately to an area with fresh air if affected by vapor inhalation.
  • Driving the vehicle before the urethane adhesive is completely cured may affect the performance of the windshield in an accident.


  • Do not use an adhesive that is past its usable term. Shelf life of this product is limited to six months after the date of manufacture. Adhere carefully to the expiration or manufacture date printed on the box.
  • Keep primers and adhesive in a cool, dry place. Ideally, they should be stored in a refrigerator.
  • Do not leave primers or adhesive cartridge unattended with their caps open or off.
  • The vehicle should not be driven for 24 hours or more or until the urethane adhesive is completely cured. Curing time varies depending on temperature and humidity. The curing time increases under lower temperature and lower humidity.



Leakage can be repaired without removing the windshield glass.

Determine the extent of leakage if water is leaking between the urethane adhesive material and body or glass.

This can be done by applying water to the windshield area while pushing glass outward.

Apply primer (if necessary) and then urethane adhesive to the leakage point to stop the leakage.
