[V8] Conductive grease ...

... in my case the windshield in the car had been replaced earlier in its
life.  The tech told me that at that time they did not do a good job of
surface preparation and so the adhesive broke free.  I could agree with what
he was telling me as I could plainly see a fine layer of dust on the surface
where the adhesive had broken free ... 

He assured me that he had done the proper preparation and that I would not
have a problem with the windshield again.  I submitted a claim against the
comprehensive coverage of my insurance, so the cost to me was something like
$100.  If I would have known that the windshield was not really being held
in place by the seal I might well have tried removing it myself and
resealing it.  The cost for doing that would be the cost of the trim ring
and adhesive, but there is a tremendous risk that the windshield will break

Hope this helps!
