Last week the window on my Jeep started making a horrible noise! A violent grinding sound that would make the most callous of people cringe! Here's ho...
Undo all the screws
be careful! don't pry too hard, you don't want to break the little plastic clips that hold the panel to the door.
undo the electrical connections and the door handle rods so you can pull the panel free
This is a very important piece. Don't tear it... if you do, it is easy to repair with duct tape.
pull of the felt sweeper that is on the inside of the window. doing this will make removing the window easier.
These little clips are frigging annoying but they work well at keeping plugs plugged...
you should now be able to slide the glass up through the top of the door and out of the frame.
