[0:00] What’s up guys? Are you looking for a full glass windshield that comes with a wiper, as well as a vent, for your RZR 1000? Today we’re going to show you everything you need to do to install one.
The first thing you’ll do is remove all the contents from your box. Lay it out and make sure you have everything. Lay you windshield up against your machine to confirm that it fits.
Then we’re going to take our seal. You’ll have two pieces of seal that look just like this, and we’ll apply them right down through here. Once you get to this point, just take it and tear it right off.
We’ll do the same thing over here on the opposite side of the windshield.
You’ll have two different kinds of bulb seals. You’ll have a straight bulb and then your 90-degree bulb. We’ll take our straight bulb and apply it to the lower portion of the windshield. The lower portion will obviously be the side that has the cutouts for your vent.
[1:09] We’ll just start right here on this edge. Apply this seal all the way across the bottom. Run it all the way to the right and then cut off the excess.
Now that the lower seal is on, I’m going to flip my windshield around and put the upper seal on. Make sure the bulb portion is facing toward the inside of the machine, just like this. We’ll start here at the edge and work the seal all the way around.
Once you get to this point, cut off the excess. It should look like this up to this point.
[2:36] What we’ll do while we have it flipped this way is grab the clamps. Take the nut off the clamp and pull your bushing out. Inside the grommet, you’ll see a little metal sleeve. I usually use the screw to push that out.
Then we’ll come to this hole and fold all the corners of the grommet in. Take your steel sleeve and slide it back in there. Let’s repeat these steps for the other three holes.
Alright, once we have our grommets in, I’ll show you the vent. This is your cover plate. If you don’t want your vent open, just put that on. Take both of your thumb screws and just thread them right on the studs, so there’s nothing to that. It’s pretty easy once you have your vent on.
[3:56] Now it’s time to install the wiper. The biggest thing you want to make sure of is that you take this nut off right here—your small 10 mm nut. Remove it and pull this little sleeve off. Go ahead and remove that nut completely, and make sure you pull this one off the rubber. Put the washer up against the nut, that way the rubber is making contact here.
Then we can just drop this through, like that. Remember, rubber up against the door, up against the window frame.
We’ll flip it up real quick so you guys can see. Put your nut on there—I like to hand tighten them the best I can and then take a 17 mm wrench. Hold one side and just crank it down. You don’t have to get it super tight, but you do want to snug it up.
[4:52] Then we’ll lay our windshield back down. We have our wiper here, and our handle. Then you’ll have the actual wiper. There’s a little plastic cap here—you’ll want to go ahead and remove that cap. Take your wiper and it’ll have a spring on it. Just pull it, let it flip, and slide it on. Make sure you get it straight with the handle and then start the nut.
Go ahead and grab the wiper blade and it’ll lock on, then you can take your cover off. Let this flip down and sit like this. Then we’ll grab a 10 mm and tighten it up. Make sure you get it nice and tight, then you can take your cap and slide it right back into position, just like that.
[5:44] So the windshield’s prepped and ready, but now I want to show you a trick that I like to use. Personally, I like to take my clamp and hold it straight out, so it’ll look just like that. Take your bolt and drop it through to the bottom, so it’ll look like this. Then, just to make sure it’s not going to go anywhere or fall off, start your nut. I do that with all four of my clamps—that just makes it so much easier to install and you’re not looking for your hardware, you know exactly where it’s at.
It goes on easier if you’re installing it by yourself. You can do it the other way, even if you are installing it by yourself.
[6:28] Once you’re to this point, you can take it and flip your clamps out on one side. Make sure you lip it up underneath your visor. We do have a soft cab installed on this machine, so we will be working around that.
Now we have one of our clamps wrapped around the cage. We’ll take our nut off of the screw and start feeding our screw through the clamp, just like that. Go ahead and start the nut. Then come down here and do the exact same thing.
Now this one is started, so we’ll work our way over here and repeat the same step. Nothing is different from side to side.
Alright, all of our hardware is started. Now we’ll get a 10 mm wrench and a Phillips-head screwdriver. Come in here and put your wrench on your nut. There’s no reason to fully tighten these any more than with just a wrench and a screwdriver. You don’t want to overtighten it. Just hold it with the wrench and snug it up. You’ll see when it starts to smash your rubber grommets.
[8:08] That one is good and tight. We’ll come down to the bottom and put our wrench on. That side’s good and tight, and it’s tight there too.
Alright, so there we go! The glass windshield is good to go. If you were just looking to install the glass windshield, you’re done. That’s all you had to do.
Like I was saying, we do have a cab enclosure on this unit, so that does change a few things. Some of these clamps that you were wrapping around the cage, like this right here—obviously you won’t be able to get them through at this point. You can try to snake them through there but a lot of the times you won’t be able to get it. So what I like to do is just roll them and slide them down, like that.
[9:06] If you wanted to, you could get some Velcro and lay a strip right down through here.
