    Going to replace my drivers side window and track felt (flock). Thanks to the P.O.S.M.F. that broke into my truck 2 weeks ago. I got the flock from Jcw and noticed that its all one piece compared to the stock one which was a 2 piece setup. Since I have to replace the window which means the vent window assembly has to come out, how do you install the felt. I was thinking of cutting it into 2 pieces like the stock one and using weatherstrip adhesive to glue it in. The directons that came with it are not that great. Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Are you talking about the main window felt or the vent window seal? I replaced my main window felts. They were one piece. You have to have the window out and they just push into the channel and lock in place. I've never had to remove the vent window in order to replace a main window.

    Also Ive never seen a two piece window felt. Are you sure yours wasn't just cracked?

    73-80 use a 2 piece window run, 81+ use a 1 piece design. It sounds like you ay have the wrong parts.

    its for a 90 full size. The entire window channel felt for the window and the window is what I have to replace I thought the the vent window assembly had to come out to get the side window in and out?
