    Default Fitting windscreen

    I took my old windscreen out and it was bonded in . I have cleaned all seal up and removed bonding . When re fitting does it need bonding back in or the seal on it's own good enough thanks sam

    A little bit of sealant will help, especially with a reused seal, they used it from new anyway so it can't hurt

    I've just done mine and learnt the hard way how to do it correctly.
    Use non setting window sealant, and use a strong cord (I used washing line cord) watch YouTube videos if you're unsure of the method,l. To help ease the rubber in lube it with window cleaner, do not use washing up liquid as it contains salt. Take your time and try not to force the window in.

    Iíve replaced my windscreen multiple times due to damage and never used sealant. I personally donít think it needs it.

    You can get new seals for about 30 quid
