Reinstal windshield question
Written by stanwalton... on 10/23/2010 at 12:44 pm

Thanks Mike,

I understand your instructions but I have these washers that appear to need
passing through the metal and the shield-- then the screw would pass thrugh it--
but they won't fit.. The are shaped as a rivit or a grommet with one flat side
and the other side has a protubrence.. ( Hopefull I'm describing so that you
understand what I'm saying)
Good tip about the tape...

Thanks again,
Stan

are just started into their holes so the whole thing fits loosely. The
windshield can now be placed behind the strip, and it will hang on those two
bolts. The two middle bolts on the sides are the hardest to start as the metal
piece has to be flattened out and alligned. I usually start the front bolt
loosely, and then catch these two. You may have to press on the metal strip to
flatten it to get it in line. The clearview should have longer bolts than stock.

    I've been lucky enough to have to do this procedure at least 5 or 6 times (removing the Clearview) and would strongly warn you to proceed with caution. ALL of my bolts and the holes they go in are stripped now. Not sure what I did wrong, but

    Do you have a friend or two who can help? I've learned how to do it on my own but it is a REAL PAIN. With two other people, it becomes much easier. One person holds the windshield up, one positions the windshield, metal bits, rubber, etc, and

        Stan, FWIW, it's been four or five months since the last time I removed my windshield but if memory serves, I put those washer/rivet things underneath the metal strip. That means they only go through the windshield and rubber. Chee

    Any time you have a problem with reassembly of anything on the PC go to the appropriate section at any of the online dealers onlinefiche interactive parts and diagrams section and download and print the section for reference. I have found

      I have also changed several windshields and suggest a recheck of your instructions. (Please refer to the Honda set-up instructions on our site) The rear collar/bolt assembly goes thru the rubber backed plate, thru windshield, thru the shield

        Dick, thanks for pointing out the reference in the set up manual about the position of the rear collars behind the screen rubber. I never thought to look there. Sorta figured the installation on my own. When I posted I was going from my o

      Skye, If that is the prices at Cheap Cycle parts they are much higher than Service Honda or Ron Ayers. They show $230 for a mirror assembly. Fred --- In

        Thanks for pointing that out, Fred. I, since, have been doing more comparison shopping for dealer parts and Ron Ayres has been coming up the least expensive, followed by Service Honda. Cheap Cycle parts has one of the easier Parts Diagram

    Stanley, I reread your post and have a better idea of what problem you're having. To match up the alignment of the plate and windscreen try using an alignment drift or a Phillips screwdriver on the front hole that fits snug in the nut and get

      Not to hijack this thread, but Sky, what part would I need to replace to be able to actually thread my bolts into their holes rather than just grinding them in, as I do now? Is it just a couple of nuts inside that I could replace? -Scott

          I can vouch for helicolis. In a prior life, I worked in a machine shop. Used those every once in a while (okay all the time) when I screwed something up. It always did the trick! Cheers, Douglas --- In
