How many people does it take to replace a paramedic roof on a Kia Sportage
A lot of cars go through my shop, this 2019 Kia Sportage the entire roof had to be replaced after a tiny twig shattered the glass, after removing all the panels and all the screws and nuts and bolts I can fine I had a new one ready to be installed I realize that was over my head so I called the local Mobile glass shop to rescue at the end the body shop did the painting and repair Eight Is Aiming did the removal and installation of the interior in mikes auto glass changed out the entire window,
here's a … summary video of what it took to get it all together,
I was expecting a tiny Kia Sportage ambulance.
Maybe it is the KIA alternative to a Trunk Monkey.
I thought I was the only one that remembered those commercials lol.
Ah, people do live in glass houses? This design has always been lacking of reality, but people still buy them. A tiny twig broke this? I'm thinking a rock.
I guess it depends on the combined speed of the vehicle and the twig. Tornados impale trees with 2x4s regularly =D
Hi Benjamin, It just find it odd they used the word “twig” as a description. I have a picture somewhere around here of a pencil stuck through a section of 1x8 lumber. It happened when I was stationed at Langley Va. during hurricane Gloria back in 1985. That storm tore up the entire base.
I think the rear hatch was open, and a twig fell into the gab between the top glass and the hatch. The rear hatch door was closed, and the twig crushed into the glass.
Ahhh, yes, you're right, I hadn't thought of that. I recently saw a video of someone taking out their rear glass when the roll of masking tape slipped off the trunk lid. Ouch.
