ok so im kinda sweating bullets. my visor got replaced last week because it broke under B2B warrenty... not the healdiner was not quite right.. well my manager and the shops service manager took a look. he says the headliner is warped and covered under B2B. so my new one just got in but the shop manual says you must remove the windshield to get the headliner in and out....

I DONT WANT THE GLASS REMOVED ughh. very very few people know how to reinstall glass and leak test it and get it 100%. most glass folks rush and dont do as good as the factory. no seal will be better then the factory installed one.

any one here have there glass taken out?

The Chilton manual doesn't show the glass needing to be removed...

Mine had to have a new windshield put in because it was cracked (dealer took care of it, it started the day I went to get it. Must have had a chip and 8 degree temps with snow killed it.) It seems to be fine so far.

I have a 15 CTD with 6000 miles and I have a pretty good chip about a inch or two from bottom, if it cracks I will be getting a new windshield thru State Farm, so far it hasn't cracked, hope it stays that way. Have no idea if windshield needs removed in your situation

The GM procedure is to remove it... well im gonna make absolute 100% sure the glass company they will have do the glass uses 100% genuine GM seals and gaskets, a 100% genuine gm windshield and have high def photos of the surrounding area in case they damage my paint or car... ugh

I had my windshield replaced due to a spider-web crack through the middle almost 2 years ago with no issues

GM replacement does NOT require windshield out, with or without sunroof. Rear seat and both front seats come out, the headliner goes in and out through the rear door. Document 2472807 (without sunroof) and Document 2472806 (with sunroof), the procedure is the same regarding replacement.
