E28 Door Window Fixings - What Glue to use?

Recommended Posts

So while exchanging the Zobelbraun Eta clear glass for green I encountered a small issue :o

 

What is wrong with this picture?

Yup, a small air gap between the glass and the fixing.

 

Some shots of the fixing:

The upper right hand side metal part is glued to the glass and the left hand side rubber grips the glass when the bottom clamp is bolted to the regulator slider.

 

The question is, does anybody know the type of glue that the OEM used or that has been used / recommended for this application?

 

Thank you in advance for any help / advice / recommendations.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

Hi Ivor,

 

Thanks for that. 

 

I have been looking into this a little more and JB Weld seems to come out on top mostly.

 

Anybody used JB Weld or have an opinion?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

So after a little bit more research I acquired some JB Weld

And glued the fixing bracket back onto the glass:

And installed the green glass into the front passenger door:

Went to exchange the clear rear drivers door glass to green but had to conduct a little more JB Weld action on the glass securing brackets first :rolleyes:

Had to leave it to fully cure for a couple of days as it's -20 outside at the moment :shock:.  The garage is heated but not that heated :rolleyes:.

 

Impressed with JB Weld though :D.

 

Enjoy your weekend.

 

Regards,

 

Mick
