honestly man, once it starts to separate youre better off replacing it. had this issue with my gt and ended up replacing the window cause even if you glue it back together itll start to come apart again.

You saying replace the glass or the whole top? The window is glass. Ive seen a few links online of people gluing it back with good results. Was hopin someone could give me some first hand experience on what works. My sis really doesnt have the money for a new top.

Is the top and back window all one unit or are the multiple pieces to the top?

The tops on mustangs are two pieces. The back window is glued into its own section and then there is the top itself. If her car is the same way you can replace just the window section of the top but if it's all one piece it'll have to be the entire top that needs to be replaced. If you don't have that option you can try cleaning the section of the glass that has come off and glueing it back into place. That usually holds for a month or so but once the window has started to peal away it'll keep wanting to do so.

Any tips for cleaning the vinyl? Glass isnt so bad. The work isnt an issue so much as the money. My sister jusut graduated college and doesnt have a job yet. A few hundred for a top are not in the plans.

You're gonna have to scrape it off cause if you use any sort of adhesive remover you'll make it worse.
