I've recently purchased a 1978 MB 300D, and lately I've noticed a
permanent state of fogginess at the bottom of the rear windshield. The
rear windshield leaks. I have ordered windshield gaskets and will be
replacing both the front and back ones soon, but was curious if I need
to think about replacing the whole back windshield because water may be
trapped between the glass and laminate.
Will this problem go away if I take out the windshield, let it dry out,
and put it back in with a new gasket?
If not and I decide that I can live with the fog, will I need to worry
about it contributing to rust around the windshield seal?
Also, am I correct in assuming that I will need to remove the
windshields when I replace the gaskets?
