[0:00] What’s up, guys? Today I’m going to show you how super quick and easy it is to install SuperATV’s Rear Windshield on this Textron Wildcat XX. So let’s get right to it!
First, we’ll remove both seats from the machine on the driver’s side. Reach back here, grab hold of the lever, pick straight up, and then remove our seat.
Then, on the passenger side, we’re going to remove the two bolts on the front of the seat frame holding it to the machine. There will be one on each side. After that, we’ll remove our passenger-side seat.
[0:47] After you’ve removed your seat, make sure you remove the torque-sided hardware from this hole, as well as this hole. If you have a roof installed, you’ll want to remove your roof hardware as well. We’ve gone ahead and loosened it just for demonstration purposes, so we’ll go ahead and remove it now.
You don’t have to completely remove the roof—just the rear-most portion of it. That way we can get our clamps on for our rear windshield.
Now that we have our machine ready to install the rear windshield, we’ll head over to the bench and install our bulb seal to the windshield. We’ve already peeled both sides of protective film off of our windshield.
[1:25] We’ve also already checked to make sure that it fits. We highly recommend that you do so before installing it.
Now that we have it laid out, as you can see, we have the bent or curved portion of the rear windshield facing down toward the table. We need to make sure our bulb seal is facing up and away from that curvature and then we’ll apply the bulb seal starting here on this edge, then going all the way around and ending on this edge right here.
[2:10] Once you’ve applied your bulb seal all the way across the windshield, cut off the excess. We already had a pre-cut piece of bulb seal.
Now we’re ready to install our rear windshield to the machine. We’ll just slide it into position. Now, just like anything else, if you have somebody here to help you, it does make it a little bit easier.
But you can do it by yourself! You may have a bit of a struggle getting it around the top of the seat belt, but it will definitely go. You just have to work with it and then work the plastic portion of the belt here. Once you get past that, it’ll sit in position for you.
Next we’ll go to the opposite side and make sure everything is good behind there—looks good. We need to make sure these lower holes on the back of the plastic line up.
Once we have our rear windshield in place we’ll get the hardware out of the bag: this bolt, as well as sealing washer. Make sure the seal portion of the washer is facing toward your windshield. Line it up and make sure to start it good, but don’t fully tighten anything yet. We’ll just hand start it now.
[3:36] Then we’ll grab our upper clamps and strap those down. I’ve got a little trick for you guys, just something to make it easier. Take your clamp loose and pull your strap through like this. Fold it over and then shove your clamp and your piece of strap through the rear windshield. It makes it a lot easier.
I’m going to put some tension on that and make sure we’re sealing up good everywhere—looks good to me!
Now we’ll tighten this one down. It’s looking good. We’re going to move over to the opposite side and do the exact same thing—tighten down this side as well.
Then we’ll take our heavy-duty Velcro straps and slide them through, just like this. Move it through itself, pull it tight, and wrap it back around. Repeat the same steps for the opposite side.
[5:04] Then we can go ahead and get our 10 mm hardware and reinstall the hardware for the roof. We’ll do this for both sides.
Next, re-install the seats.
