    Rear slider, easy. Lay slider down. Put gasket around it. Use 1/4" nylon rope, hook tool, and glass cleaner as lubricant. A second person on the outside holding the glass and slightly pushing will help. Once you get good, you can do it yourself in 5min, or less. (Note: If your gasket has chrome or rubber "interlock", toss it and get a new gasket without. They look ugly and don't install as easy.)

    What specifically is your "power window" dilemma?

    does the vent window have to come out?

    [/ QUOTE ]
    Not totally, but I do loosen it up really well.

    what's the bolt in the door jam for?

    [/ QUOTE ]
    Guessing it's holding the track on that side. I would loosen it, but not remove it.

    how does the slider come out?

    [/ QUOTE ]
    Push gently from the inside at the top corner and slowly work it out. If your gasket has an "interlock" on the outside, pull it out first before pushing out the slider.

    Odds are, the doorglass from your rig is glued into its track. Which means you'll have to re-use the track or complete regulator. The odds of breakage are very high if you try to remove it from the glue. If it's not glued, use a razor to cut the rubber holding it in.

    If there is shattered glass glued into the track of the new door, use a drill and drill bit (the width of the track) and drill it out. Wear eye protection! You will need to glue the new window into the track with windshield urethane. Good Luck! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
