Replacing the windshield GAZ-3110
Loosen the mounting bolts and remove the instrument panel from the body (look at the GAZ-3110 instrument panel, removing points 1-26).
Remove the windscreen blower pipes.
Press the palms of the upper part of the windshield from inside the body, while the assistant should hold the glass at the moment it exits the opening.
If the glass is broken, carefully remove the fragments from the seal and remove the seal with a wooden or plastic spatula.
Clear the opening of the remnants of the old mastic. If the removed seal is in good condition, it can be used after cleaning and wiping.
Insert fresh mastic into the groove under the glass of the seal and put the seal on the glass.
Insert decorative edging into the seal.
Insert the mounting cord 1 (you can use a strong rope with a diameter of 4–5 mm) into the groove under the flange of the window opening of the seal, pulling its ends out of the groove in the middle of the bottom of the glass.
To facilitate the installation of glass, you can lubricate the cord with glycerin.
Apply a layer of mastic to the window opening flange around the entire perimeter.
Attach the glass from the outside to the opening, inserting the protrusion of the seal in the middle of the lower part beyond the flange of the opening and bringing the ends of the mounting cord inside the body.
Evenly pulling the cord out of the groove in both directions and thereby bringing the protrusion of the seal beyond the flange of the 1st opening, insert the glass into the opening.
At the same time, the assistant should press the glass against the opening from the outside of the car in places where the cord is output.
During the installation process, light blows with the palm of your hand on the glass are allowed for a tighter fit to the opening.
Similarly to replacing the windshield, the rear window is replaced.
In this case, it is necessary to disconnect the block with glass heating wires.
Let's consider this process in detail
Remove the lining of the front pillars.
Remove the sun visors with clips.
Remove the rearview mirror.
With one flat screwdriver, we pry and fill the rubber seal behind the roof edge.
Holding it in this position, use another flat screwdriver to pry off in the same way and fill the seal from the started section in any direction.
When it is about 10 cm long, the first screwdriver can be removed.
Continuing in this way, we pass the roof two side pillars.
Carefully squeeze the glass out of the opening from both sides at the same time
Installing the windshield.
An assistant is needed for this operation
Lay a cloth or some other soft material on the table (or on the hood of the car).
Lay the glass on it, turning it upside down.
We put a rubber seal on it, starting from the corners.
Turn the glass over and insert the parts of the edging into the seal.
We close the joints between them with overlays.
Turn the glass over again and thread the rope into the slot of the seal, starting from the middle of the lower part and returning to it.
At the joint, an overlap of about 10 cm is made, and the ends ropes are brought out
The glass is applied to the opening and centered.
From the inside of the passenger compartment, smoothly pull the rope, while the assistant presses the glass and keeps it from moving.
First, the entire lower part is passed, then, one by one, the racks.
If necessary, we upset the glass by lightly tapping the palm of its upper part with a movement from top to bottom
In conclusion, fill the upper part of the glass in the direction from the edges to the middle
After the glass is inserted, press the seal with your fingers.
Reinstall the removed visors and rear-view mirror.
