    I am fed up with with the leaking and whistling being louder than my radio and my dual 3" flowmaster 50s and 454 on the highway. So I went and bought the 1-piece GM replacement seal...only probem: I have NO clue how to remove the vent window to allow me to replace the seal. Any pointers or step-by-step instructions or diagrams would be great....Thanks gang...

    I'm 99% sure that I posted a diagram of how the vent window comes apart, about a year ago. You'll have to search for it though, and no garauntees on if the link is still good...

    Once the door panel is removed, I think 1 bolt holds it in place.

    There's a bolt on top of the doorframe too.

    had same problem...ordered seals for both sides, looked the job over and just ended up ordering a new vent window assembly for the driver side. Never did change the passenger side. It involves popping out the old rivets, and installing with new ones.
