I have new safety glass windows and the rubber channel from Lang’s.

How is this mounted in the car. Is it set in silicone or just held by the window garnish molding.

Thanks for any help.

It originally was just hung. I use rubber adhesive to hold it in place because the new stuff doesn't hang like the original did. Also the original plate glass was 3/16" and unless you replaced it with 3/16" the 1/4" tends to have much more drag when opening and closing the windows. I normally have a 1/16" taken off of new glass to allow room for the thicker window channel you get nowadays.

Thanks Don.

What adhesive did you use. Did you put that adhesive inside the molding also

I use Loctite PL-S30 urethane "Roof and Flashing Sealant. It sticks to anything and can be cut with a razor blade if needed. Just put small dabs about every 3 or 4 inches enough to hold the window channel in place. You may want to use masking tape to hold the channel firmly while the adhesive dries. That stuff takes overnite to cure. I'm not sure what you mean about "inside the molding" ?

The rubber molding that surrounds the quarter and the rear window is shaped like a u. I don't know if you're supposed to put sealant inside the U to hold a glass in the molding before you use the sealant to hold the glass and molding on to the body

They are fixed windows. They do not open or close

I guess if they don't open there's no concern about closing

Oh boy I was thinking they opened. Sorry, but I do use the sealant on the fixed windows also. If you don't they will leak. The U shaped gasket doesn't seal well at all. So yes you can use the sealant inside the gasket. That Loctite cleans with mineral spirits so you can get a nice clean bead when you are done.
