Back glass replacement on 2008 Dodge Avenger

Post by eclecticmn » September 6th, 2018, 6:57 pm

Mon son's 2008 Dodge Avenger had the back glass shattered.

There is no gromett. The glass appears to be bonded to the metal with a 1/4 inch thick rubber layer.
Should this be removed and replaced with a urethane sealant? Is there a replacement rubber piece?
Maybe this piece is used at the factory instead of urethane sealant?

To my knowledge the glass is bonded to the metal with a urethane sealant. You will want to trim that down with a sharp chisel or a long knife, do not take it completely down to the metal because urethane sticks better to urethane. You will have to obtain the proper urethane and primer to replace it.
