Model CJ-2A,CJ-3A,CJ-3B : The entire windshield and frame assembly may be lowered down on top of the hood. This is accomplished by unlatching the retaining catches mounted on the cowl above the instrument panel. When lowered do not fail to strap it down with the strap provided which is mounted at the top of the radiator guard. On Model CJ-3A, when the windshield is in an upright position, ventilation is provided by a hinged ventilator mounted at the center of the panel directly under the windshield.
On Models CJ-2A and CJ-3A, windshield weatherseals may be replaced as follows:
Open the windshield, swinging it up until it is parallel to the hood, and tighten the screws holding it in this position. Remove the old weatherseal and clean out the channel or groove thoroughly. Loading slots are provided in the vertical sides of the windshield frame at each corner to feed the new weatherseal into the channel. First lubricate the channel with either powdered graphite or brake fluid. Guard against over lubrication as the weatherseal will become coated, making it hard to handle. Feed the left lower end of the seal into the lower right end of the channel working it across the width of the windshield frame. Feed the two vertical ends into the vertical channels in the same manner and use a blunt tool to roll the corners of the seals into the corners of the channel. The flange of the seal is reduced in width at the corners to facilitate the installation.
