You might need Bart's help getting rid of your duplicate posts. I bet it would help you get responses.

I have not replaced a Champ windshield, but note that there are two different configurations for the Decathlon, one requiring wing removal!.

Here is what the manual says, p.4-6:
A. Remove wing-fuselage forward gap covers.
B. Remove screws fron side and top retainer strips at rear edges of retainer.
C. Remove windshield.

Installation is p. 4-19 - too long to type, but essentially the reverse. You might want to get a copy . . .

Bob Turner thanks for the reply. Sorry for the duplicate posts, I was to impatient I guess. Posted twice and didn’t see either one then all three showed up. I tried to delete them but couldn’t make it work. Bart if you can help the first two can be deleted.
I do have a service manual that makes it sound straightforward but having been elbow deep in ag equipment to many times, sometimes things are not what they seem. Just wondering what others have experienced.

I didn’t replace but I took mine out and reinstalled it. Pretty straight forward. Just need two people to make it easier and the directions are pretty good.

I’m not 100% sure about the windshield but I know you have to cut and drill every other piece of glass but the windshield is probably the same. It’s one expensive cut!

Thanks for the info. Mine is getting to the point where it is hard to see going into the sun, after 40yrs I think it’s time.
