  • 2859 Windshield leak-gctid805452

    I have a leak coming from 2 of the bolts holding the (front) windshield in place. Moving the headliner (monkey fir) I found 2 of the bolts appear to have been broken off, the nut is missing the the bolt is about even with the fiberglass. The bolts are such that I cannot get a nut on them in their current condition. I will need to grind some of the fiberglass away, gently, and try to get a nut to seat on the bolt......

    What I am wondering,,,,, has anyone seen what these bolts look like? The bolt head I mean.... Checking around the windshield from the deck I cannot see a bolt head anywhere, looking in the rain weep holes and after removing the rubber window trim doesn't help,,, no sign of the bolts at all.....

    Is the bolt welded to the bottom of the window frame?

    If I cannot get a nut on the bolts,,, what might be other options for getting the leak to stop? Possibly removing the window's rubber gasket and using something (caulk, miracle tape) to seal the window and frame to stop water from entering the window frame?
