HI,
To remove the broken glass, use either goof-off, 3m glue solvent, or even fingernail polish remover to soak between the glass and the convertible top and then use a putty knife or boxcutter to go between the glass and the top to work it loose and remove it.
Then clean the top surface where the glue was with some alcohol to remove any left over glue residue.
here are directions on how to glue the plexiglass window into place and the type of glue to use:
3M Windo-weld is what you want.
1.Clean surface, unlock the top and place a 2" spacer to relieve stress on window interface.
2.Apply thin coat of 3M Glass Primer [08682 or 08681] to the glass area to be glued -10 min dry time.
3.Apply 3/16" bead of 3M Windo-Weld adhesive 10.5 oz tube [08609] over primer - Press the surface of the top around the window to provide a good contact and extrude excess adhesive.
4.Prop up the window from inside the car to provide good contact between the glass and top - this is important. place some duct tape in a few locations at the window top interface to assist in holding the top to glass. Cover top to protect from rain - leave top unlocked with spacer.
5. let it cure for 3 days .
6. Carefully clean excess adhesive with razor blade.
7. Materials can be ordered online or at a body shop supplies retailer.
