As a machinery specialists Service 8® comes across these kinds of installations often. More often then not we find that the windscreens are very loose due to incorrect sealers being used and/or an inferior methods of application have been performed.

Refer to our short YouTube tutorial of the technique Service 8® uses. This should put you on the right track to sealing two windscreens together with ease. Using this method will insure the windscreens do not shake loose during the machines aggressive off road daily work routine..

A quick note is to insure you are using a structural silicon, not bathroom sealer. The kind they make fish tanks out of. This sealer is incredibly strong and designed to bond glass together.

  1. Great Post. The video demo is quite helpful. When replacing a windshield yourself, the quality of the waterproof gasket you get is very important. You do not want the elements to leak inside your car due to a bad seal. With care and patience, you can create a good seal for your car’s windshield seal.
