Dealer: These instructions contain important information for future reference and must be given to the customer at time of purchase or
upon completion of installation. Torque specifications must be followed when tightening bolts.
Note that a few components of the vehicle are not depicted on the drawings in order to make the installation
instructions as clear as possible.
a) To apply the edge guard (Item C) to the lower windshield (Item B), find a
clean flat area where you can lay down the windshield. Partially remove the
protective film on both sides and apply the edge guard using manual
pressure to ensure good adhesion to the windshield.
b) To apply the foam cushion (Item D) to the upper windshield (Item A), find a clean flat area where you can lay down the windshield. Partially remove the protective film and apply the self adhesive foam cushion using manual pressure to ensure good adhesion to the windshield.
c) Attach clamps and upper pivot cylinder adaptors (Item E, F & H) to the roll cage of your vehicle as per drawings. The 2 lower clamp sets will be used to attach the lower windshield and must be installed with the threaded inserts facing the front of the vehicle. The remaining (2) clamp sets will be used to attach the upper windshield. Install them by ensuring that the threaded inserts are aligned from right to left of the roll cage. Tighten all socket cap screws M6 x 45. Do not tighten the screws that hold the clamp to the roll cage; you will need to make adjustments later on.
d) Install the lower windshield to all four lower clamps using supplied hardware (Item G) without applying final torque. Adjust the position of the windshield and tighten all screws with specified torque indicated below. Ensure that the windshield is perfectly level before tightening. If the windshield isn’t level, windshield functions will be affected. Over tightening clamps to roll bar could cause parts failures.
e) To attach pivot components to upper windshield (Item A), as per step a), find a clean flat area where you can lay down the windshield. Partially remove the protective film where components (Item H & I) are to be attached and follow drawings below. All screws that are passing through the windshield will be tightened later in step f). Do not over-tighten the screws that combine the slide arm with the lower pivot, those 2 parts need to swivel.
f) Attach upper windshield to the machine by following instructions below.
1. Make sure that both upper clamps are at the same height.
2. Hold the upper windshield horizontally and slide it down by ensuring that both upper
pivot cylinder adaptors are going through the upper pivot as per drawing #1.
3. Pull gently on the windshield as per drawing #2 towards the front of the vehicle for the
upper pivot to slide to the end onto the upper pivot cylinder adaptor.
4. Lower the windshield as per drawing #3 and the upper pivot will catch the second upper pivot cylinder adaptor.
5. Adjust the height of the upper clamp first by ensuring the overall leveling
6. Tighten all screws regarding the upper pivot.
7. Adjust the height of the clamp to the lower pivot and slide arm and use ‘T’ knob to lock
in place. Drawing #4 shows the position you should have when windshield is closed.
8. Tighten all remaining screws and nuts.
To operate the tilt mechanism:
Simply loosen both ‘T’ knobs (without removing them) and push on the upper windshield from the
inside of the cab until the desired position is reached. Then tighten knobs. Note that there are 3 pre-
determined positions on the slide arm; closed, half-opened and fully-extended.
To remove the upper windshield:
Remove both ‘T’ knobs and follow reverse instructions 4, 3 & 2 of step #f).
