Is the rear window glass supposed to attach to the convertible roof along it's top edge?
When I was Corvette shopping I looked at two C5 convertibles. I noticed that when I put the top down on both cars, the rear glass would pivot inwards a little. That is, the glass was not attached on the very top edge.
Is this operation normal? Was my top broken when I purchased it?
If it's not normal, then it must be a well designed top, because I drove around like that for about five months through all sorts of conditions with zero leaks. It's was fine during washes and also through monumental down pours!
Eventually, the rear glass in the back of mine did fall out. It was about two weeks ago. I glued it back and it so far appears to be holding. However, I did notice that some of the glue has begun to separate at the very top edge, just as before. It seems this area is under the most stress when dropping the top.
Thanks for the help!
