On my '94 I'm replacing my cracked windshield and repairing some rusty spots. Mine is a one piece gasket that goes all around the glass. It has been replaced before and the last installer had gobbed sealer in behind it but I'm not sure it actually needs any sealer. I'll find out when I talk to my glass guy.

Well....I'm finding out this morning that the one piece gasket is a modification and not OEM to my van. My glass guy will replace per OEM (glued in w/ inner and outer trim) but he won't reuse the one piece gasket as it is a liability because it's a change to the original design.
I didn't know windshields could be so complicated. crazy

lol tell me about it.

Interesting your doing this just now catfish. so when you say "Mine is a one piece gasket that goes all around the glass" how dose this get kept in place on the frame once it is put back in, is there a locking strip or something that is wedged in on top off it?

Yeah there's a attached locking strip around the middle of the outside portion of the gasket. It hinges down into a slot, expands the gasket and locks the gasket in place. The outer edge of the gasket fits over the metal lip of the windshield frame and the inside of the gasket has a slot that the glass fits into.
I thought it was factory although I have seen windshields on similar models that looked different. My windshield gasket is pretty wide on the outside compared to some others.
I've got a call in for a different glass guy to see if he can tell me more.

Just got off the phone with the second glass shop and they said basically the same thing. He said that new gaskets were no longer readily available and to reuse the old gasket he would not guarantee the work.
If he seals the new glass in then it's a lifetime warranty.
His comment was that a "shade tree" shop must have reused that gasket along with all that caulking last time.

I'm gonna get the Ford windshield replaced at the same time. They're like kids.....can't get one something unless I get the other one something too. rolleyes

The old factory rubber gaskets went out of style a few years back (more like quite a few). The factory went to urethane sealer and a molding at some point, but I don't know exactly when. My 91 has it, a friend had a 93 with the old style rubber gasket (could have been changed). Many years back, when I did my 77 G-20 6 wheeler, my glass guy put in my windshield with sealer and a molding. It looked different, but I liked it. Bottom line, go with the urethane. It seals better and should slow down the rust problems caused by leaky weatherstripping.

GUYS HELP ME :-(

i don't seem to be able to verify anything 100% with what yous say. When Catfish described

"there's a attached locking strip around the middle of the outside portion of the gasket. It hinges down into a slot, expands the gasket and locks the gasket in place"

i thought this must be what i have, so i went out tonight and checked. I was thinking the locking strip was the red hatched part in the middle of the gasket as below and hinging along the yellow line, but on inspection mines really dosent look to be like as described. the gasket you see below all seems to be one complete unit that is joined in the middle of the screen at the bottom (as per my first picture)

am i over complicating this and is it just a case that i need some or all of the circled items below

[Linked Image]

if not have any yous guys got a parts diagram of what i should get? i can seem me ordering the total wrong thing and getting it shipped at a ridicules cost which when ill start crying :-(
