Blazer side window

Has anyone had any experience with replacing a rear side window on a '84 s-10 blazer? I found a factory tinted window at a wrecking yard, but i need to find out if this is something i can install myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: Blazer side window

Can't help you outright, but check the following:

1. Is the window like the rear window on trucks? Meaning is it held in place by rubber in the center of the sheet metal, -or-

2. Does it look like it's held in with adhesive like on the windshield.

If #1, then you can do it your self with little difficulty,
If #2, then you'll need some good adhesive and some cleaning materials to get the old stuff off. Might need some new rubber to seal it. Since I hate working with glass I would say have a guy come out and do it. Those mobile guys might not charge so much to put it in. To get a new windshield for my '98 S-10 it only cost me about $160 including labor...

Hope that helped...

Re: Blazer side window

The window is urethaned into the opening,the rubber like trim is wrapped around the glass and the whole unit is urethaned in.To remove the window you have to remove the inside trim panel,you will see where it is urethaned all the way around.You have to cut all the way around with a sharp olfa knife.Be sure and cut as close to the metal as possible to keep from cutting throught the rubber as you will want to reuse it.Have a friend on the outside holding it so it doesn`t fall out.The hardest to cut is the corner ,i guess they put more stuff on the corners.Good luck!

IMO save yourself the hassle and get some one to put it in, it's not that much $$. I hate paying others to do things for me, but I don't f&^% around with glass 'cause I can never get a good seal.

Hit? Them tires rub. Rubbin's off roadin.
