Windshield struts- 95 Prostar 205

Hi all,

My windshield struts have play in the strut itself allowing the windshield to clunk a bit when the water gets rough. Anyone know where to get replacements?

Thanks!

You probably don't need to replace them, you just need to tighten them. Most all of these struts are the same. On each end is a ball socket and the mount is attached to the pole by a screw inside the ball. You can only get to this screw if you remove the arm from both the windshield and the dash. You may want to mark the position of the ball joint to the bracket on each end with a sharpie or grease pencil, because it will move when the screw is removed. Once un-installed, remove the screw in the ball joint. You'll probably find it had lock-tite on it, but is now loose. All you really need to do is re-install this screw tightly with new lock-tite. Do this on both ends. Then remount to the dash and windshield.
