Reinstal windshield question
Written by c172myp51 on 10/24/2010 at 05:23 pm

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?

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 the parts to align and then insert your collars(1) and bolt(28)
in the now aligned mid/side holes. Once these are in place this should hold
enough tension to insert the front collar(33)and bolt properly.
