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.
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.
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
