1.

Scrape smooth the original adhesive with a knife, until there is a thickness of about 2mm (0.08 in) on the bonding surface around the entire rear window opening flange:

Do not scrape down to the painted surface of the body; damaged paint will interfere with proper bonding.

Remove the fasteners from the body.

2.

Clean the body bonding surface with a shop towel dampened with isopropyl alcohol. After cleaning, keep oil, grease, and water from getting on the surface.

3.

If you are reinstalling the original rear window, scrape off the original adhesive, the fasteners, and the rubber dam from the rear window with a putty knife. Clean the bonding surface on the inside face and the edge of the rear window with isopropyl alcohol. Make sure the bonding surface is kept free of water, oil, and grease.

4.

Apply glass primer to the edge of the rear window (A) where the new lower rubber dam (B) will be attached as shown. Attach the lower rubber dam with adhesive tape (C) to the lower edge of the rear window:
