Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Preparing old undamaged windows for fitting

Cutting back adhesive bead
  WARNING
Keep bonding surface free of dirt and grease.
Do not treat bonding surface with activator immediately after cutting back. Do not prime. Do not treat with cleaning solution.
  Note
   
  If an undamaged window is being re-used, cut back the residual adhesive sealant to 1 to 2 mm shortly before bonding it back in. Do not damage primer and ceramic coating when doing this.
  The remaining material is required as a base for the new adhesive sealing material.
  WARNING
Exception: if bonding is performed later than one day after cutting back adhesive bead, the remaining residual material must be activated with activator.
Apply activator evenly in one stroke using applicator.
Activator must not come in contact with paint, or the paintwork will be damaged.
Drying time approx. 10 minutes
