Question Rubber windshield gasket?

It looks like the previous owner had the windshield replaced and the paint got nicked. There is some rust under the rubber gasket that surrounds the windshield.

Is this rubber gasket easy to remove and reinstall?

I'd like to fix this before it becomes a big problem.

Might want to ask over at PTCrew.com. I've never had the PT's windshield out, each manufacturer does it a different way so even though I've had others out I wouldn't want to mislead you on this one.

I just read through the OEM service manual and the instructions are way different from what I'm used to. You actually have to cut the urethane from around the window to remove it. I haven't read more, but will PM you with some info.

Not looking to remove the glass. I just want to remove the rubber gasket around the windshield to get at the metal underneath... Really only about 10" worth.

I'll have to dig through the service manuals and see what they say.

Thanks!
