    But it looks period ugly!

    Hello!

    Now that we've sorted the electrics on my DS the next step is to remove and replace my DS21 windscreen. The reason for the operation is that i have a leak at the top center of my windscreen (as we began to discuss in my previous thread about the turn signal gremlins) but i wanted to save this for a more appropriate thread....and this was the closest i could find here.

    If there's a step-by-step instruction somewhere (preferably with notes on what to look out for) that would offer guidance for the removal, re-sealing and replacement of my windshield i'd appreciate someone pointing me to that resource.

    alternately..if anyone has suggestions or guidance you can provide prior to me just taking a swing at it i'm all ears/eyes to learn from your previous efforts/success/mistakes.

    Thank you!

    Hello, have a look at this

    Before you remove the screen, have you tried pushing it further up the screen rubber?
    Plenty of washing up liquid around the screen / screen rubber joint. Remove the bolts at the bottom of the screen. Remove the metal strip. Screw the bolts back in, but not fully. Using a length of wood, gently lever the screen up into the top rubber using the bolts as the fulcrum.
    You may find it slides up about half an inch. Be careful, you may find you have a split screen!

    Thanks Peter! That is a great preliminary thought and would sure simplify things if it works! I'll report back....
