I have removed many windshields and installed about 3.
 My installation success is about 66%.  The keys:
*location of the windscreen and rubber assembly in the
channel of the base unit
*the tightening of the 2 "lifting clamps" must be
gentle and equal
*don't tighten the "lifting clamps" too much or you
will develop tension in the glass

I came down to the garage one morning after installing
a glass to find that it had cracked badly.

On the other hand, I installed two others which were
not a problem.
