“…every time I hit a bump, I’d watch as the Drivers side wall and windscreens bounced up and down a couple inches, hoping and praying they would stay together just a few more miles….”
When we bought our “new to us” Mirada, I noticed the drivers side wall would move up and down 1/2 inch, it appeared this had been doing it for some time because there was wear marks on the instrument panel where the cup holder was rubbing against the instrument panel. (see the marks in red circle)
The screws that secure the drivers side wall (above the front wheel) had all fallen out allowing the front of the drivers wall and windscreen to bounce and float.
I did an emergency repair that looks like its holding, I'll make it more permanent when I get home.
