Aygo rear door glass loose

Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 Aygo 5 door with both passenger and driver rear door glass come away from the fixing brackets. Can any one recommend a suitable adhesive to repair? Toyota dealership says I have to buy two new glass assemblies which will cost a small fortune!

Could contact one of the vehicle glass repairers (Autoglass, National Windscreens, etc) to see whether they have something suitable or whether they can repair them.

Theres a previous thread re this same problem. Try searching for it. One of the members got some replacement glass free from a Toyota dealer. It should have been a recall imo, but wasnt. I won't say too much because the last thread got locked...

There were two threads on this - only one was locked. One member did have their rear side windows replaced, but, their final post on the subject read:

"So, it turns out the lady who sorted my case was there temporarily and normally works the Lexus stuff. Now she's gone back to Lexus, no joy for people with this issue who ask now.

The small window of opportunity has closed - unlike Aygo back windows"

A second member who posted on the same topic, who had the same issue, contacted Toyota, and was denied help.

However, if an affected vehicle has a full Toyota servIce history, it may be worth contacting Toyota customer relations to see whether they will provide a contribution under goodwill (a contribution doesn't necessarily mean full cost of replacement). If the vehicle doesn't have a full Toyota servIce history, goodwill will probably be denied.

Still annoys me when dealers don't read communications from Toyota. Totoya recently issued a bulletin to dealers 

Ref: WB705

The bulletin asks dealers to raise a "Prior approval" request including photos with the warranty department and cases will be handled an a case by case basis.

Go back to your dealer and ask for their comments on the bulletin.

I had a similar issue on mine where the glass has come unstuck form the lower metal bracket. I used a couple of pea sized blobs of Tiger Seal to secure the glass to the bracket. Worked perfectly!. Make sure the areas are thoroughly clean first.

Thanks mic,

i’ll give that a try. Would it be best to remove the glass from the door and clamp the fixing whilst it’s curing?

I would personally use marine grade (291i) Sikaflex. It will need clamping until cured.

I have used it in many marine applications and it is fantastic stuff. Extremely tough but pliable, and will outlast the life of the car.

I my case only the bottom hinge had come away from the glass so I left in in place but used a couple of clamps while the glue dried (door will need to remain open).

this morning @ 6.40 i saw an 05 plate aygo on the hard shoulder and he had suffered

the same issue as he was holding the glass and wondering what to do next.

toyota need to support anyone who has suffered from this issue as you dont expect

a window to fall out of your car .

Devon Aygo's post of 1st June on this topic outlines the help available from Toyota. 

Then again, the car seen on the hard shoulder is 13 years old ......

It may be worth checking the glass cover on one's motor insurance.

Firstly have a look at Devon Aygo's earlier post dated 1st June, and take action as per that.
