Mr. Dutch!
Thank you for your post. I would be most interested in your findings when you get into replacing the seals. Yes, my sedan has the roll out feature for the "A/C," on the windshields. I am just not seeing the screws or hardware holding the seals on the frame. :rolleyes:<!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: --> Thanks again!

Look underneath the bottom edge, once they are opened all the way.

-Use a mirror if necessary.

The top screws should be accessable once the bottom is freed up, because the window can swing out to get at them!

Ah - be gentle, of course....

:D

There are NO screws holding the windshield weatherseals in place on the Cord sedan.

I just installed a new set of windshield frames and seals in a '37 Beverly. The frames themselves are held in by two hinges at the top (three screws each) and two screws hold the bottom. Undo the bottom, swing the windshield up, and undo the hinges.

The new windshield frames should hold themselves into the channel of the frame. Line the straight sections up and then start working around the outside. You may have to pull them around a little to take out slack. If they don't want to stay, apply a slight amount of weatherstrip adhesive. I used 3M black in a couple spots on one seal.

The second paragraph should say the new windshield rubbers should hold themselves into the channel......but you probably guessed that! This would also be a good time to change the screws to stainless if they aren't. They can be hard to get out!
