The hardest part of the windshield replacement is removing the petrified gasket without destroying the chrome (alumnium) trim. This car now has its' 3rd windshield. The 2nd windshield, which had a big crack was a monster to remove. That gasket was HARD and glued all the way around, The MB manual just specifies sealant on the bottom edge and about 1/2 way up each side. Several hours of surgically removing the glued in gasket was spent. The MB manual does a great job explaining the process of installing. As a tip use dish detergent as a lube to insert the chrome trim into the new gasket, the trim goes on before the windshield goes on the car.
This past week I replaced the dash, wiper motor, antenna and the windshield.

Had the SDL out the other night and drove through fog with a outside temp around 3F, this is what was on the star when I got home.
