Service Procedure

  1. Position the glass panel to the vent position. (Figure 1)
  2. Clean the rear and side rubber seals of the movable glass panel with isopropyl alcohol or equivalent.
  3. Clean the exposed sheet metal of the roof opening with isopropyl alcohol or equivalent.
  4. Position the glass panel to the fully open position. (Figure 2)
  1. Clean the remaining front rubber seal area of the movable glass panel with isopropyl alcohol or equivalent.
  2. Clean the remaining exposed sheet metal of the roof opening with isopropyl alcohol or equivalent.
  3. Apply isopropyl alcohol or equivalent onto a clean cloth and insert it between the rear fixed glass panel seal and the roof opening sheet metal. (Figure 3)

(1). Folding the cloth over a flexible piece of plastic such as an old credit card or a thin piece of plexiglass will assist in the cleaning process.

(2). Slide the isopropyl alcohol soaked cloth around all sides of the fixed panel glass.
