Windsheild replacement info

It's time to replace the windshield on this mighty beast and I was wondering if someone could give me the procedure for replacing it? My repair manuals are with my camper 75 miles away and I have the glass purchased. I have replaced windshields before on the Explorers with the foam tape, but I don't see it's use here.

Thanks for the bump southend, just finished up removing it tonight, looking forward to installing tomorrow. I did learn that this one has been replaced prior to me. Wow what a hack job.

For all those interested, It's finished. In the past on the first generation Explorers they used a 7mm X 7mm self adhesive foam tape to keep the urethane adhesive from oozing inside and spacing the windshield from the pinchweld. Not in this case, but I would recommend the use of the foam tape across the bottom to make the install nicer looking. The old part number for that foam tape is ESB-M3G137-A. Good luck.

I agree with you on how much a pain it is, but another secret I forgot to mention is the adhesive flows much nicer if you warm the tubes in a gallon bucket filled with hot water from the faucet.
