I'm currently in the process to re-install all my saloon windows, but the exterior blinds (this is how I would call them) are blocking the access to the side windows massively. I guess they were designed as slide in parts with some "hook & latch" brackets, which have to be pulled in a specific direction to get them off. I couldn't find any other fixation, not from the bottom through the saloon deck nor any caulking as if they were bonded.
I have contacted Jeanneau already, but no response so far. It would be nice if anyone of you could help me. Thanks!
I have a similar problem in my Jeanneau SO 43DS, just that the leak I coming through the screws on top of the electrical panel. I have seen that 3 of the windows are partially lose, thus I'm planning on removing the windows completely, cleaning the current seal and rebeding
Anyone with experience on doing the full job that could explain it?
No experience as yet regarding re-bedding the windows but about to... 2010 SO 36i with similar "outside blind" protecting the top of windows. The sealant at bottom part of windows, facing north (lots of sun in Australia), has failed. Planning to use 3M VHB... still looking at which one to use.
This must be a common repair given the compression post issues.
Hi there is no reason to remove the as you call it blind above the glazing you can cut the glazing out from the inside of the cabin with a fine flexible putty knife about 25 mm wide thinest you can find if you cut a slight angle to the front edge of the knife it facilitates working through the sealant make it as sharp as you can you need to work the knife all the way through the sealant all the way round it takes some time to do each pane but fine ally they do come out I am not that impressed with m 3 sealant it is to runny and sags if you try to gap fill with it You will find when you have removed the panes that the glazing has two holes drilled along the top edge with same in the frame use these to position the glazing with metal pegs when you re seal the frame when set simply twist them out and fill the hole job done ( for the next three years if you lucky ) if you look carefully at the glazing frame and the sill above you will realise that removing the over sill will not help you Much removing the panes because you will still have to separate the side and bottom fixing in the manner discribed above looking at this sill I do not think it is meant to be removed at all removal may cause you more problems than it resolves I used sikoflex to bond and five years later I am getting the odd leak believe it or not Cpt Tully’s creeping crack sealer dose work on fine cracks apply twice a year and do the full job when it suits you bob sailing Jollybob W I Martinique
