- When reusing the undamaged window, cut the rest of the adhesive material on the window and flange with the Window Cutter -VAG1561 A- and Window Cutter - Scraper (2 pc.) -VAG1561/8- so it is even, but do not remove it completely.


The remaining material acts as a base for the new adhesive to be applied.


  • Keep the adhesive surface free of dirt and grease.
  • Cut back the adhesive surface shortly before installing.
  • Do not prime or use a cleaning solution on the adhesive surface.

New Window Glass, Preparing for Installation

- Clean around the adhesion surface using Cleaning Solution -D 009 401 04-.

- Wipe the cleaned surfaces with a dry, lint free paper.

- Apply the Glass-/Paint Primer -D 009 200 02- as described as follows.


  • The ceramic application on a new window is not primer.
  • It must be primed before the application of adhesive sealing material!
  • Glass/paint primer is conductive to electricity and as a result may not touch the distribution wire for example for the rear window heater.

Applying Primer:

- Apply glass-/paint primer -3- with applicator -2- evenly in one stroke near the window molding -1- on the window -4-.

- Beginning applying with saturated felt.

  • Primer width approximately 20 mm.
  • The glass/paint primer must be positioned in the center of the adhesive bead.
  • Curing time 10 minutes
