Technical Service
BULLETIN
September 18, 2006
If a creak, tick, or rattle noise is heard at the top or bottom of the windshield, the source
of the noise may be the two windshield stoppers bonded to the top of the windshield or
the windshield retainers bonded to the lower edge of the windshield. This bulletin
provides the recommended repair procedure to eliminate these types of noises from the
windshield area.
NOTE:
Some vehicles have both stoppers and retainers while others may only have stoppers
at the top of the windshield. Use the chart in this bulletin to determine the location of
the windshield holding devices.

UPPER/LOWER WINDSHIELD TICK NOISE – NV009-06 September 18, 2006

Upper Windshield Glass Stoppers:
1. Remove both sun visors and both A-pillar garnishes, and then carefully lower the front
of the headliner to gain access to the windshield stoppers (refer to the appropriate
model year Repair Manual for the proper procedure).
NOTE:
It is very important that the front of the headliner be lowered carefully and slowly.
Applying too much downward force on the headliner will cause it to develop a
permanent crease in the surface material.
The stoppers are located on the inside of the passenger compartment behind the
windshield glass blackout section (near the top front edge of the metal roof opening).
The stoppers are typically located 20 – 25 cm (7.9 – 9.8 in.) inboard of the top
corners of the windshield glass.
2. Cut OFF the tip of the plastic stopper as shown in the illustration.
HINT:
It is sometimes necessary to bend the metal body tab down to gain access to the shaft
of the stopper.

safe location for reinstallation later (refer to the appropriate model year Repair Manual
for the proper procedure).

2. Locate the lower windshield retainers.
The retainers are typically located 140 – 200 mm (5.5 – 7.9 in.) inboard of the lower
corners of the windshield. The flat portion of the retainer is adhered to the backside of
the windshield with double-sided, foam-backed tape.

glass retainer flush with the flat portion of the windshield retainer (diagram below
shows the windshield retainer location to cut off the plastic pin).
