    Default window clip glue epoxy

    Anyone had long term luck with reattaching the clips to the bottom of the side door glass???

    What product?

    I've used aquarium silicone with success. I've also used silicone I purchased from a glass/mirror shop. No name brand on it; $5....I have yet to find anything better.

    Make sure the glass is clean. Use rubbing alcohol to clean the area once you remove all the old silicone and ensure all surfaces are dry before applying the new silicone. I can not stress this enough.

    I used a Marine grade epoxy stick (break off a piece,knead it til the color is uniform,apply it).Works in the cold,under water,etc.I installed it about 3 years ago and it's still holding strong.As Demon stated,make sure the glass and clips are surgically clean,and I even got some rough grit sand paper and sanded the glass and clips for that little bit of extra "bite" for the epoxy.

    I removed the windows and "surgically cleaned" the glass and clip areas, then carried them to a glass shop. They used their magic goop on them and didn't even charge me.
    I installed the glass and left them up for two days. Been working fine ever since (5+ years).

    Its called Window Weld ask for it at your local auto parts store. I sell it all the time. Same thing they use to hold in your windshield. How long has that been holding! Yeah a long damn time.

    All the above suggestions will work as long as your track is in good condition. If the sleeve is damaged, has fallen down some, or other such circumstances exist, none of the above will solve the problem.

    I used some 2 part epoxy I had, plastic weld-good for all plastics and glass etc. Rated at 3500 psi, whatever that means.

    I removed and cleaned the clips and drilled a few small holes through them, to let the glue flow through and bond better.

    sanded and roughed up the glass, and installed everything. Seems to hold like a rock, currently. Well see how it goes.

    I also put some spray white lithium grease on the tracks.

    I used to work for a cadi dealer,and the windows on 2000 up devilles has "clamps" on the regulator with 10mm nuts. these clamps worked awsome for repairing the windows. no glue to seperate.
