Windshields

I always use the plastic one on glass that is less flexible such as windshields. I’ve done hundreds of windshields and been extremely successful removing them without damaging them, breaking only those when I was in a hurry.

Windshield removal success requires a little patience. Let the Inductor Glass Blaster do the work. Don’t muscle it out.

I have also found that the heat that remains even after the Glass Blaster head is moved to another location, continues to act releasing the urethane. So just keep moving around the perimeter rather than "muscling" the glass out. Remember, patience is a virtue.

As the urethane releases and slight outward pressure is applied, you will see the glass move or vibrate where the glass has been released. The point where the glass quits moving is the point still attached to the pinch weld.

When you feel the windshield has been totally released, place the palm of your hand behind the windshield and using slight outward pressure, check and see if the bond has been released from the entire perimeter of the windshield.

I once made the mistake thinking a windshield was totally released. I leaned it out top first only to find the urethane was totally released but there was one small string of caulking on a cowl panel seam that was still stuck. The urethane had released but a piece of caulking was still stuck to the urethane.

Well you can guess what happened at that point of attachment. 20 minutes worth of work wasted in one brainless moment. Sometime it helps to know what not to do as much as it does what to do.
