I would like to swap out my rear window as it is one solid window, I would like to ad a slider window that opens...
Never change rear window before, Is it tuff to do???
Any help is appreciated..
Hey i wanted to do that! lol its not hard you do need a window stick? im not sure of the actual name but the just lide right in and its not hard to do at all im just waiting for 35 bucks to get a nice one from a junk yard
you can fix anything with enough hard work determination and a 5 lb sledge
An old hood latch wire works well to get the molding around the inside. Set the wire in the molding strip before putting window in. Once in, you can pull the wire along and it will pop the molding through quite easily.
I don't get stuck. I just lose traction and stop moving!

Remove the plastic bead in the center of the molding first. I seem to remember laying rope about the size of drapery rod pull cord over the left & right sides of the window frames & L/R of center over top of the window molding being installed. Used to help feed (pull into the frame) the replacement window molding. I started on a lower corner, went across the bottom, then up both sides. Probably over the top, the more rope feeds the merrier.
I did it by myself, but two people would be easier. What happens is. from the outside, it will appear that the molding has climber over the frame & seated, but it didn't. Someone on the inside can help nurse it in & tell you when you need to back track an inch or two.
