Please read and understand these instructions completely before installation to avoid injury to yourself, damage to the vehicle or accessory.
Be certain to follow all specifications. For proper installation, two people are required
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.
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 needed on both sides and apply the edge guard using
manual pressure to ensure good adhesion to the windshield.
b) Attach clamps (Item D & E) to the roll cage of your Rhino as per drawings. The 2 lower clamp sets will be used to attach the lower windshield and must be installed with the thread 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 roof support. Do not tighten at this stage; you will need to make adjustments later on.
c) Install the lower windshield to all four lower clamps using supplied hardware (Item F) without applying final torque. Adjust the position of the windshield (For height reference; the center arch edge guard should be the only part in contact with the hood) 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.
IMPORTANT : Torque specification Max. 5 foot-pounds Applicable to all Clamp screws M6 x 20 (If torque tools are not available, stop tightening as soon as both male and female clamp parts touch as per picture below.)
d) 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 G & H) 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.
e) Install upper pivot cylinder adaptor to upper clamp as per drawings. Tighten all socket cap screws M6 x 45 (Do not tighten the screw that holds the clamp to the roll cage. They will be tightened at next step).
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 Rhino 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 and by keeping a gap as per drawing #4.
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’ knobs to lock in place. Drawing #5 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).
3. Maintenance and Care
Tighten all hardware after first use and periodically thereafter.
WARNING: Failure to follow these installation instructions completely may void any warrantable components and result in product damage or personal injury.
