Brian, check out the thread below:


posts 16 by @2jzturbo92 and post 20 by me. Those 5 holes was how water was getting inside my hatch. I thought it was the back glass seal/dam on my 92.

I ordered the 2 side black cups and the 3 bottom glass spacers. I replaced them, (the 3 glass spacers were not easy to replace with glass installed) and I have no more water getting inside hatch.

@2jzturbo92 was a big help even offering to reseal my glass if I drove to MA. He hasn't posted in a while, he's in MA and installs auto glass. Maybe PM him for pointers.
Thanks Mike,

I do remember reading that thread. Full of great information. I'll reach out to 2JZTurbo and hopefully get some more answers. In the meantime, I stumbled upon a solution for the lower rear hatch trim. Check it out. I bought them and will let you know how they hold up.

The last 2 hatch glasses I installed I didn't use the dam at all. In talking with a local glass guy that's been doing it for the last 30ish years, the urethanes used for window adhesives have advanced significantly and the dam is no longer necessary.
You're the best @Captain I was considering doing exactly that. The only issue I foresee are the spots where the glass sits on the little glass holders. Window isn't flush against the hatch, so the urethane would need to be pretty thick?

Correct. You'll want to measure the thickness of the glass pads and make sure you have a thicker bead of urethane than that all the way around. Once you get the glass in and settled down to height you'll want to give it time to setup, and then you can go back and trim any excess urethane off.

Also make sure the glass pads are towards the inside of the window and put a bead of urethane around them as well. Not sealing those in can, and usually does, result in leaks at that location.
Printing this out and framing it. Thank you for the valuable info. 🍻
