removing rear window to add new seal
#1
I am painting a 71 mustang coupe and need to remove the rear window and I have no clue on how to do this. Thank you.

Cut the seal with a razor blade, and remove. It really is that easy. Do you have the trim off already?

Now, taking out the front windshield is a whole different animal.

Getting it out is the easy part, getting it back in leak free requires some preparation and time. +1 to what sm3570 said on removing it, cut the seal, then carefully push the glass free. A helper is a good idea at this point...

+1 on cutting out the old seal.

I have my glass out but waiting for seal to arrive as the one I had ready was incorrectly supplied (coupe, my car is f/back), any tips on refitting/sealing? ...... a local screen/glass guy is doing the install with my help & hopefully some guidance from here.
We did notice lots of black bonding had been used previously around the seal?
I have new trims and trim clips btw.
The original did not leak but was starting to crack and perish.

Thanks in advance

Glue the new trim on. Don't try and use the clips.The new trim is too flimsy.

From experience, I HIGHLY recommend that you hire a professional to replace the glass.

I removed it all myself but will pay a pro to put it in. Not going to mess with all that.
