    I own an 88 chevy K5 and I need to remove the vent window so I can install a new weather strip. I removed all of the screws on the door panel and popped out the plastic plugs but the very top section of the panel is giving me trouble. it will not pull off. It appears to be clamped down with a door window seal where the window hugs . I dont want to force it off without finding out how it is held down
    What is the trick?

    I usually just push up from the bottom with a little force and it pops off. Some people will wedge a flat head in there to get it up....

    You have to take out all the screws, remove the plate behind the lever that opens the door, remove the 2 screws on the armrest, and then it will pull upwards and off. The inner window scraper is attached to the door panel and comes off with it, but can be a pain to get unhooked from the door itself. It just clips on but should slide up along with the panel if you get a little rough with it.
