Re: [DML] Re: Louver hinges Resting on Rear Windshield



Your absolutely right about the glass cutter, that's what happen the first time.  Just tapped the windshield and it shattered.  I can only assume that the hinges are to stop before touching the glass  while resting. This means there is someway to move the hinges farther out away from the glass or that my rear windshield is sticking too far out. Any thoughts?

glass, and if they are touching it, it will eventually break. Best 
thing it to take a close look at another car or get some detail 
photos. I can't imagine what's wrong but somehow the hinges are not 
attached to the louver in the correct orientation. 

Interesting to note - if you have the louver off the car, it's 
possible to break the rear glass by simply dropping the hinge against 
it. It's like a glass cutter....
