2008 23 LSV windshield bracket moves?

The small side brackets that hold the edge of the windshield up seem to have perhaps. 1/4”-3/8” of play up and down on each side ...see green circled area 

Is that by design?

If not, how do you remove the panel that covers the area where I assume the screw to tighten is located?

I had the exact same problem. Open the hatch and there are four bolts that come through the fiberglass. You will remove the nuts and that releases the padded cover in the walkway. Then you can tighten the window bracket. Should be an easy fix.

Thanks! For the one on the observers side, see the attached photo. Are the bolts under the carpeted side or above the black plastic insert?

I looked and they must be somewhere behind the carpet :(

on another note... do you have some sort of foam rubber on both sides of the windshield that opens or just the non-hinge side?

On my 2002 I replaced the thin flattened factory foam strip with what you can find at Home Depot or Lowe’s as weather stripping.

Thanks dlb. Was the foam stripping on the hinge side too or only on the latch side?

On my boat the walkthrough panels are attached via mushroom connectors like a door panel.  You just pry them off.

On my 2018 the foam is only on the latch side of the center window.
