I have removed my old cracked windshield and picked up a new one at NPD this last weekend. I am currently in the process of removing all of the old butyl sealant and see that there is also another type of sealant that was around the windshield that filled part of the channel. I picked up the roll/rope type of butyl at a local parts store but it's not sticky. I mean it will sit in place around the channel under the windshield but doesn't appear that it will actually hold the windshield in place. Does it bond better with contact/time? I plan to use the butyl under the windshield like the original was installed but what is the best sealant to add to the channel to ensure everything is sealed correctly? I have read a few other threads on the forum and I did not see anyone state what they used other than the butyl. Any helpful hints? By the way, I plan to not fill the channel up so much that I can't get the trim back on, I had a lot of issues when I installed my rear glass trim because of that. Any and all advise is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
