How to Replace the Windscreen on a 1994 Acura Legend

How to Replace the Windscreen on a 1994 Acura Legend

The windscreen in your 1994 Acura Legend must be kept in the best possible condition to ensure full visibility when you are driving on the road. If your windscreen is too damaged for minor repairs, you can remove the windscreen from your vehicle to have it replaced.



    Locate the two screws on the underside of the rearview wing mirror that fix the base in place. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two screws. Slide the wing mirror away from its base. Repeat the process on the second wing mirror.


    Use a sharp blade to cut away the rubber trim from around the frame of the windscreen. Make an initial incision at the top of the windscreen and cut away the rest of the trim, moving around the screen in a clockwise direction. If you are just repairing the screen and not completely replacing it, take care not to scratch or further damage your screen.


    Enter the inside of the vehicle and carefully press the windscreen outwards away from the frame. Have someone outside the vehicle to help take the weight of the windscreen.


    Apply a thin layer of windscreen sealant around the edge of the windscreen. Attach a rubber gasket to the dead center of the bottom of the windscreen. The gasket should have the heavy part of the inside of the windscreen and the slit on the outside.


    Tie a nylon cord around the outer groove of the windscreen. Lift the windscreen onto the frame of the Acura. Press the windscreen against the frame for a few minutes to allow a seal to set in place. Enter the vehicle and pull the cord across the windscreen to allow the rubber lip to set in place. Reattach the wing mirror by sliding it back onto the base and fixing it securely in place with the the two base screws.
