2-dr side window-blazer

Ok, I've heard this is supposed to be a really difficult item to set, being as its so long, but really its the simplest thing you can do.

Step 1: Remove old window; Probley the hardest part on this whole project, because you don;t want to drop it, Its really difficult to remove and grab it at the same time. My suggestion: reach around the door frame and push with one hand and have a friend "catch" the window.

Step 2: Remove ALL old adheasive. From the window and the pinch weld, Very important here, if you don't do a good job here, you'll be doing it again.

Step 3: Using the adheasive you bought from the parts store (10 oz is quite enough, I still have some left over) Put a generous bead around the pinch weld, so you get good glass contact.

Step 4: Put the window back in place making shure the window trim is on. Easiest way, balance it on both hands and just tip it into place. Adjust as nessary, and press firmly, then just check on it every so often to make shure its not creeping anywere.

When I got hit, I took the truck to 3 body shops to see how much the repair would be;- about $219.
If you do it yourself, $12.95

Even if you aren't really mechincally inclined, you can do it. Its really that easy.


P.s. Even mountais crumble.
