CAUTIONS:

Always protect paintwork and glass when removing exterior components.

Always protect the interior components when removing body glass.

Measure all gaps between the glass roof panels before prior to removal to help aid installation.

Lay the glass on felt covered supports. Do not stand on edge as this can cause chips which subsequently develop into cracks.

NOTES:

The cutting blades used in this procedure are from the standard BTB glass removal kit.

Some variation in the illustrations may occur, but the essential information is always correct.

6. WARNING: Wear safety goggles and protective gloves.

CAUTIONS:

The glass roof panel adhesive is uneven as there are 6 raised Torx bolts that may catch the BTB blade (measure and mark the area before cutting. Use the rear front stud as a fixing point to take measurements from, as indicated) on cutting the adhesive.

Make sure that a velcro stick on pad (WK11VEL from the BTB kit) is installed to the bottom of the blade, to prevent damage to the paintwork.

Protect the surrounding paintwork and body from the movement of the cutting blades, using WK11PP.

NOTE: Glass roof panel shown removed for clarity.
