Rear side window installation

Most likely the window and weather stripping goes in as one peice from the outside of the car. You will have to remove the window from the inside of the car. Practice on the side of the car that you dont need. Even if you break it, you will be ebale to see how the weather stripping system works and it should give you a clue.
ALso get a estimate from a glass shop, It may be easier to open your wallet then to replace this glass yourself.
Another thought is that since yours is already broken, remove the inside trim peices and remove the stripping and see how it goes together. Glass can be real easy or a PITA. If there is sealant around this window rubber, you may have a hell of a fight on your hands.

to get rid of the glass that's stuck to the sealent,i used a stiff putty knife.
i used a knife to make a starting point,and just went at it.
**be cautious about glass popping off at ya,and wear some gloves**(i found out the hard way)
as far as removal of the replacement glass,i'd listen to gbhrps
