Rear Cab Glass on
Make sure any wiring is detached and metal tabs
are bent back to remove any restrictions. Some
pickup truck sliders are thick and therefore the
distance from the outside of the glass and the
pinch weld is further and so the field of energy
Since the field of energy is a further distance
it takes a little longer to heat the pinch weld.
In cases like these you might work the Inductor
head around the pinch weld from the inside,
holding the magnets away from the metal about a
¼ inch so as not to get the magnets too hot.
Remember the metal pinch weld is thin and if the
magnets are put directly on, the metal will turn
cherry red in about 1 or 2 seconds. If the
magnets are touching the red hot metal, they
might crack or fracture and become damaged.
Self adhesive fiberglass thermal pads
are available and I personally use them in cases
like these just to give added protection to the
Max unit I use. I have used my personal unit for
over 10 years and my unit is still in excellent
Just like other glass, heat an area along the
pinch weld around 8 to 12 inches, come in from
the inside with the L-wedge and leverage with
outward pressure until you get the initial
urethane bond loosened.
Then continue to work your way around the glass
as the urethane smokes or a rate of 1 cm per
second leveraging as you work around the glass
until it is completely removed.
