TJ, what windshield wipers did you use that fit on the OEM FJ40 wiper arms? Jeep ones are too small....

Great job BTW!

I just source the replacement listing at NAPA, I think it is an 11" blade...

That is correct. For some reason, Carquest and Checker both list 12", which is too long. Plus neither of them stock the blade with the correct mounting clip.

Put me down as a definite maybe!

Let me know what dates you pick in the fall.

Default Reviving this thread, briefly

Reviving this thread - to remove an intact windshield (for repainting) - do you remove it from the inside-out, or the outside in?

I'm going to peel up the gasket and push the glass and gasket out of the frame together, but I'm not sure which side to go from. Logic would tell you to do it from the inside out, but I wanted to see what others have done.

Thanks!

Thanks - Steve

Never done that (removal of good glass including worrying about keeping it good), but I would guess removal is opposite of install. IOW, glass goes outward along with gasket, as you wrote.

x2- I think it would be real hard or next to impossible without breaking the glass to pull the gasket inside since it's way thicker on the outside

I removed my glass by pushing from the inside to the outside, however the glass was in much worse shape when I was done with the removal!

Thanks all! I realize I may break it, but the WS has only one tiny chip, so I'd rather not.

I'm using the most high-tech glass tools - plastic bicycle tire-levers and screwdrivers. The gasket flexes (during removal attempts) about as easily on one side as the other.
