When my car was painted, the body shop had an auto glass guy come in and cut them out. The same guy came back after paint and put them back in. I spoke with him afterwards. He told me they were a pain. Get someone who does this for a living.

I agree. I had mine removed once and they broke in the guys hands. He said they are very touchy windows - not cheap to replace either. Let somebody who's has insurance do it.

How did you make out.
Did you get the glass out without breaking anything.?
Are you going to be able to re-use the existing window seals or do you have to replace them.?
Are they seals / gaskets or is it just urethane sealant from a tube.?
Do you need any parts to re-install other than the trim clips.?

well..
i made so far that i removed one glass from right side.
desided to leave the left one in place.
wanted them off just to get better paint under them, take off rust under right side and would have been easyer to tint the windows.
oh well i better take the car to profecional tinters then who do it even when they are in place.

it was RELLY dificult to get of. used many tools and it did get damaged alot from the inner side. would have been way easyer IF gm would have used JUST the glue to hold it in OR just the polts whit softer glue. but NO! they had to use 2 strong things on same time. was on harder the a submarine window...
the glass and seal/chroom stripe are all in one packege!
so if you brake it you need to buy the whole thing.

guess i will be ok. and hope in future i do not need to remove it anymore.
i will use windsheald glue to but it back.

Hey Timo, do you have any pictures along the way in the removal of the window? I'm just curious how it went.

sorry guess not.
to get it off you need to remove the chroom trim under the window by sliding it foreverand just a bit then it comes off. do not pull or you may damage the clips.
when this is off its way to the interjor.
remove the rear side cover just by pulling it and it comes off. must be 3 clips holding it.
then need to take the seatbelt off from the uper connection.
need a torts key for it.
maybe size 10 or something..
after that can get the cover off beheind the seatbelt (black plastic).
also have to take the stripes off what go araund the window just by pulling. when they are off need to loos the roofs cover, the rear passenger lights, and when this all is off you finaly can remove the nuts what hold the window from inside. and AFTER that can finaly start to cut that window off what is a hell dificult work. can easely damage the window so better don't truy this at home and let some profecional do this...

i did not take any pictures...and cant make any now.
my car just got painted.

For some reason the one on my passenger side came off very easy and I had no water leaks ... took 15-30 minutes total.
I ran into the same problems you are having on the drivers side, I used a long razor knife, cutting from inside and out, very carefully, and still cut off some of the rubber! That side took me 3-4 hours and I still ended up replacing it!

The nuts are just there to kind of hold it in place while the sealant dries!

agree
IF I EVER DO IT AGAIN THAT IS WHAT I WILL DO!!!
That was what EWolfe did when he did his paint job. I did have them professionally reinstalled when the paint was finished.
