    While installing the tip out windshield on my 2014 900 Crew, we were seeing the same issue with things being slightly out of square. My Ranger is now at the dealership because this is a known issue on 2014's. This is Polaris Warranty work and the Ranger will go to an autobody shop to have the roll cage squared up. I will post more info when I hear back from the dealer.

    Polaris part# 5439914(old), this is the latch handle for the early model tip out glass windshields (could also be using this same handle on the poly, but I did not research that) with only one grommet, for the vent position. This part has been substituted by Polaris part# 5451292(new). This handle has grommets in both closed and vent position. Cost apprx $18.

    Thanks Rockett, I would not have looked this up if it wasn't for your post.

    Update: The roll cage was squared up by the dealer and now the tip-out windshield fits squarely and latches correctly; crisis averted.

    So I bought the new handle and grommet for the closed position, but it appears now that the stud isnt long enought to pop into the new grommet. My stud is just a piece of steel welded to a flat piece of steel screwed to the machine. I looked at the one my dealer has, and his stud looks like it has a brass nut on the bottom of the stud so it can be adjusted? But the dealer's stud seemed too short as well, as their stud wasn't long enough to go into the grommet either.

    Is there a new stud as well?

    I just installed on a 2015 XP900, I added a couple of washers, the dash bows up and it unlatches when closing the doors due to air pressure. The stud needs to be 1/4" longer....

    I am working on installing my new tilt out glass on my 2015 570 FS and have a question. There are two plastic chins molded on the cowel for the windshield I would assume. Does the tilt out rest on the chin or above it? If properly fit how much of a compression should the window be under when locked closed? Thx!

    It sits just above them and the post to shut it closed you want it just barely sticking threw grommet when shut.

    Thx for the info. After some adjusting I have it above the chins. To me the locking mechanism seems it could have been better thought out. Mine does not put much of a compression on the seal and it's as far back ( towards the seats) you can go. Am I missing something or is it pretty much slightly compress when closed?
