Help,I recently got an 88 1500. The windshield was in bad condition so I ordered a new one that arrived today. I need instructions on how to do the installation. What do I need to remove and how. I did not want to try lifting off the garnish untill I knew if it was like the 1200 I had. I also do not know what else needs to be done. Thank you for any help, Tim

If you do a windshield replace search in the box at the top you'll find a couple narratives on how to do it. Here's a succinct one from our proprietor Steve himself!

This helped some but not enough details, such as do I need to remove the mirrors to get to the screws he mentions? If so, how about the plastic pieces at the base of the mirrors? Any more detail would be a great help. Thanks, Tim

I've had the windshield off a 1500 twice however both times I was doing it to remove the instrument cluster. When doing that you need to take the mirrors off, there are three screws in the mirror base, and pull off the trim rings which are just clipped at the bottom. The windshield garnish is held by one screw at each end. The plastic trim that goes below the garnish is also held by a screw at each end. The center of the garnish is hooked, not spring loaded like the 1200 so tip the metal piece forward and unhook it. After that remove the five screws, not that the metal flanged pieces on the outside ends are different than the three in the middle, also the screws are different for those two. When putting these pieces in, make sure the inner sliders are free to move and not pushed out of position.

If you are just removing the screen there is no need to remove the mirrors at all, thats why Steve didn't mention it. The Phillips screws holding the garnish on are easily visible when you peel the rubbers out and lift the adjusters. It's very easy to do.

You're right Browan and of course so is Steve, sounded like he wanted to take a bit more apart! Like I said whe I took the screen off I was going for the instrument cluster.

You know very well that Manxblackcat has been hiding the location of the "Isle of Woman" for a long time now and won't divulge the location even to his brothers on the forum!

Hi...just removed my windshield on my 1997 1500 and would assume it is the same as yours (not sure) . I found that it was best to remove the three phillips screws from the mirror in order to get to the philips screw on each side of your front garnish.

First lift up the release for your windshield, pull back the rubber piece around the mirror, remove the three screws from mirrors, remove screw from each side of front garnish, lift up on the garnishto remove frombracket holding the bottom. There will be five screws holding the windshield in place and five oval shaped washers. Take note thst the two outside ones are deeper. very easy to do and will take max. 15 mins. Good luck..........Wayne

P.S. plastic trim below mirror is just clipped on on the bottom of the piece.
