sit inside the car and push the rubber out in one of the top corners then just work your way round till youve done the top and both sides then lift the window out from outside it will make your thumbs sore, you can do this by yourself but youll need someone with you to put it back in!

Take the chrome coloured spreader strip out first though.

Not if you use your feet! :)

Wipe some wash up liquid around the rubber where it touches the metal, inside the car, then put a foot on the glass at the top corner & push, work across the top, then go outside car & pull top of screen forward & lift it away from body.

How refreshing, someone wanting to spend an hour or two removing/replacing windows & doing a proper job rather than spending their time pissing about with masking tape :evil:

Well done mate.
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!

The other way of doing it if you want a better finish but dont want to remove the glass is to get some 6mm cord.

Lift the rubber and work the cord in underneath to hold the rubber up off the metal

Then when you mask up the rubbers you can paint underneath them :wink:

Not as god a job as taking the glass out completely but you wont get the edge on the paint next to the rubber either and you havent got the headlining hassle when you reinstall the glass either :oops: :roll: :wink:
