Bravo rear windows

Is there a way of removing the rear side windows from a Bravo without smashing them?

I have a sheet of polycarbonate ready for next weeks track day and would like to replace the glass to save a bit of weight and stop the track from being closed for seven years while they look for bits of broken safety glass if anything were to happen.

Re: Bravo rear windows

Looking at the workshop manual there are two threaded reference pins on front and two clips in the back, but they are used to align the glass.
It is bonded with sealant and it has a profile attached so even cutting it with wire looks painful. Page 512 on Vol2.

Re: Bravo rear windows

when i had my windscreen on my van replaced they used the same process we used at Beneteau boats, primer and a polyurethane glue.
Cutting the glue was not much fun if ever we had a problem with the window, we had a tool which looked a bit like this. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Windscreen...-/370158338403
i recommend NOT using an ordinary stanley knife, far too dangerous.

if you shy away from changing the glass, and are still worried about the mess it might make if it breaks, i would go for a clear or tinted film, that way at least if it shatters, it wont go anywhere.
