Temporary rear window leak fix?

Postby shguiuc115 » Fri Apr 26, 2013 4:59 am

The rear sliding window on my 2002 CC is leaking around the seal between window frame and cab. :cry:
It will take the body shop that replaced the window a few years back to get parts in and arrange an appointment.
I was thinking of using some duct tape for a temporary fix. :?:
Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks.

See if you a Glass Specialty in your area. Our local one has been able to handle several different jobs no problems. Rear car windows, tractor windows, ect, ect.

If not, try silicone instead of tape.

Silicone is a much better idea. It can easily be peeled off and water wont damage the adhesive, because it is and adhesive. When the repairs are to be made it can be peeled off with zero damage to your vehicle.
