  • Gasket under windshield chrome cap

    I drove through a monsoon yesterday and i had water leaking out of the sun visor attachment points. is there a rubber seal that goes under the chrome cap on top of the windshield that i am missing?

            I used this 3m Strip-Calk under the chrome cap.

              Looks like I got moused. But I did do the dum dum under the cap trick just to be sure.

                Hmmm, Soon as I posted the above pic, I wonder if it got torn when they put a new top on last year?

                Anyway, I went looking for another small leak that I have and i think it is coming through this hole. My question, is there supposed to be a bolt in there? It's behind where the fenders attach.

                  That would go into the windscreen bracket 'retainer nut' labeled "Remove this bolt". If the nut is missing or damaged and you want to replace it, it's available from TRF and maybe others, but the bracket needs to come out. Otherwise, you could use a plain nut and a longer bolt if needed.

                    looks like a 1/4" bolt. Thank you for the help.

                      Thanks for posting that, my car is also missing that bolt, and was leaking by my left foot last time I drove in the rain. I thought it was the rock-hard windshield rubber finally leaking, but now I'll bet it's that missing bolt. I'm going to see if I have one in my stash that fits.
