Rear automotive glass is removed in many ways
like the quarter glass is removed. Just begin by
removing any connections to the rear window
defogger. Then apply the Inductor head to the
edge of the glass directly over the pinch weld.
Once the urethane begins to smoke, move the
Inductor head at approximately one centimeter
per second or just as long as the urethane
continues to smoke as the head is moved around
Again, if there is rubber encapsulating the
glass or you need to assure the adjacent paint
is protected, use the Cold Shield Thermal Gel on
the painted metal surface adjacent the rubber.
Once an area has been heated and released of
approximately 8 inches, place the L-wedge edge
on the pinch weld and leverage out against the
glass from the inside.
If the painted surface doesn’t need to be
protected and there is no rubber encapsulation,
the glass can be leveraged from the outside.
If the paint needs to be protected from damage
and the glass is leveraged from the outside,
when the painted metal surface is hot, the paint
becomes soft and can more easily be nicked and
If there is rubber encapsulation and the metal
is hot then the rubber is heated as well and
leveraging from the outside can distort or
damage the rubber encapsulation.
That is why I personally find it a safer, more
effective way to leverage from the inside of the

the glass, leveraging as you go and in
approximately 15 minutes or so the glass will be
