So what you're saying is they went back to the old style rubber gasket with just a newer style? Interesting....

Holy thread revival batman.....

This is a windscreen gasket I got with a new windscreen that I received from Germany many years ago. The windscreen company ended up re-using the original gasket. Can anyone identify what years it is for?
It is for sale but DBnate on here has first dibs on this if it suits his van.

The following is to the best of my knowledge:
The sheetmetal around the windshield was unchanged from '73 to '95.
The windshields were changed to fit either the glue-in seal or the lock-in gasket.
In other words, if you have a gasket type windshield your gasket will work with that glass regardless of the year.

Our 1994 GMC was a glue-in from the factory but was changed to the older gasket type later. The only difference was the glass and gasket itself. I was told that this was a fairly common practice if the glass shop repairing the glass happened to already have the glass and gasket in stock.

The gaskets are getting harder to find nowadays as they were stock on the older models.

I'm going through this nightmare now on my 1980 G10. Glass guys replaced the windshield after I fixed a bunch of rust. Came to pick up the van and they ended up reusing the old rock hard gasket because he said he couldn't get the new gasket to fit. Two days later, we have a downpour and of course its leaking just as bad as it was originally.

I tried to explain to the guy to order a newer glue in style glass and trim, but he just looked at me like I didn't know what i'm talking about. It's so rainy in the northwest, I figured the glue in style would be better.

Just found this thread after my local installer (Seattle area) did a bad job replacing my windshield seal on my 1991 G10 - basically inside the van after the install I can see the back of the pinch weld and there is that black glue visible all around the pinch weld - and then on the outside - the rubber (gasket?) is very poorly attached (glued?) all around it - its not even straight. Just a terrible job. Its going back to them on Wednesday and hopefully they will do a better job this time. Also the rubber that goes around the outside doesnt go out as far on the body as the old rubber - and that means the new rubber exposes an area where the body shop didn't work too hard to get flat since they thought it would be covered up !

You need this kit and a competent glass installer who has experience with Chevy/GMC vans! I too found out the hard way.

Thanks NateB - my saga continues - the local Seattle (Issaquah shop) replaced the seal they shoddily put in first - and at first the replaced seal looked like a good job - two weeks later the outside rubber gasket has started to come away from the body and it appears they have just sort of glued it on with a thin line of that black sealer so there was NO WAY it was going to last - and on top of that I can see they have chipped paint away in a couple of places under the seal - presumably while trying to get the new seal in and out and in or whatever .. . . this is getting so old .. . .

Nate I am going to buy the seal you mentioned - and they try and find someone competent to install it. If it works out I will response on this thread since its the one people will get Googling.
