Jaguar/Land Rover Glass Replacement Requirements

Jaguar/Land Rover Glass Replacement Requirements

The role of the windshield is a lot more complex than simply allowing a view of the road ahead. It is considered a structural part of the vehicle as it contributes to the strength of the roof and A-pillars. The windshield helps to manage collision energy and has become an integral part of several advanced safety systems.

It is commonly asked; what is required when replacing a windshield? With this question in mind, we will be presenting a series of articles that highlight some of the requirements from the various OEMs. Let’s see what Jaguar/Land Rover has to say.

The information that we are looking for can be found in vehicle-specific Jaguar/Land Rover body repair manuals. For 2016 model year vehicles:

  • Jaguar/Land Rover does not identify a specific brand of pinchweld primer.
  • Jaguar/Land Rover identifies that a Hi-modulus sealer, such as Wurth Ultimate adhesive be used.
  • It is important to stay within the same product line for the primer and adhesive.
  • Be sure to refer to the urethane manufacturer’s directions for curing time specifications, and do not use adhesive after its expiration date.
  • Jaguar/Land Rover specifies the use of a WK2S blade with WK11DW5 controller arm with the glass roof procedure.

As a special note on Jaguar models, vehicles that are equipped with auto high beam assist (AHBA), the rear view mirror cover caps are designed for one use only and will need to be replaced.
