TOPIC: 164 Windshield Replacement Crisis

164 Windshield Replacement Crisis 3 months 1 week ago #1344

Hello Everyone,

I've owned a 1972 164 for a year now. The windshield has been severely cracked since I got it, and the previous owner stated it has been cracked the same for years. Since it is so old, I can't find a replacement. National chains can't provide a replacement or repair it, specialty Volvo shops in Colorado have no where to send me, and I can't find a used one anywhere.

My question is, are the dimensions of a 164 windshield the same as other '70s era Volvo models? If I find a 144, 142, or perhaps a later 240 model at a junkyard, would that windshield fit my car? I know most dimensions of these cars stayed the same through the 1970s, but not sure about the windshield. Any insight would be great.

Might try calling a nearby major city auto body shop that does tons of business and has a good reputation.

Such a place has numerous instant contacts for locating hard-to-find auto glass.

The install probably includes new trim, clips, seal and adhesive - all not cheap and not readily locatable.


Looking here...

tinyurl.com/lp9e6cj

...change the Position in Vehicle drop-down from 140 to 164 then notice other windshield options (reference ONLY) to include the needed clips, etc. for proper installation.

Yes, the 140 and '75-only 240 have the same windshield arrangement as the 164 but not necessarily the same clips and seal.

Removing the old glass invariably destroys the clips, seals and (sometimes) the trim.

This is why I usually recommend having a shop do the install.

You will be lucky to enjoy a new, no-leak windshield for under $500 but that's peanuts considering what you will put into the car in the next thirty years!
