Thanks varesecrazy!

The website is useful to me, the grande Punto seems like interchangeable with evo.

Re: Replace tailgate glass

I have a tube of the single pack acrylic body sealant that will also do window glass (though not windscreens). It's great stuff but the aluminium tube is collapsing rather than the plunger sliding in. I would be very unhappy if the new window was ready to fit and that happens so buy carefully.

Re: Replace tailgate glass

That’s because normally with window fitting adhesives you use a special mastic gun that completely encloses the cartridge.

Thanks I'd not thought of that.

My previous tube behaved perfectly but Ive no idea what brand it was. Both are single pack body sealant.

I believe windows are done with fast setting twin pack.
