Re: Hard door glass

1. Remove the:[*]Inside handles and cranks[*]Mylar panel[*]Wing Window frame
2. The Wing window frame is held in with a screw at the top,
3. Under the rubber seal,
4. The second screw is on the inside of the door frame.

5. Then take the window slide bolts off.
6. If you want to remove the window seals off,
7. They clip into the door,
8. It does make removal easier,
9. Then work the window out.

Re: Hard door glass

I don't think the frame is removeable. Not easily anyway. Mine's rusting just like yours.
I pried out the weather stripping and used a recipricating saw.I did not cut all the way through, just the outside section and then welded in some sheet metal. It's not perfect but will do until the rest of the jeep rusts away. At least I don't have to get a tetnis shot everytime a close the door.

Thanks for the help!

[/ QUOTE ]1. No, the upper door window frame is not removable,
2. It's spot welded to the frame,
3. The wing window frame is removable.
4. AFAIK there are no upper aftermarket door window frames made.

Hard door glass, the soga continues....

Well, it's only been four years, but, thanks to your help, I dismantled the doors including the glass. Did the body work, repainted and now I'm reassembling the doors.
I having trouble getting the side glass back in.

Any hints for reassembly?

Thanks.

Mine came out with just one screw! Years ago when I first got my CJ I was trying to fix the screen door handle that had stripped holes. I turned the part that screws to the door and ran in some new screws. Fixed! As I was standing there by the door, the window blew up, out, and all over me. At first I thought some dipstick had had thrown something at me and hit the glass. But, I was alone in the shop. It took me a little while to figure out what I had done running in the screw in and pinching the glass. It just took a min. or two before it broke. About a week after getting the new glass in I was driving along side a golf course that was being mowed. A rock hit my jeep so hard and made such a loud noise it scared the crap out of me. I just knew my jeep would have a big dent somewhere on it. After looking it over and finding no dent, I saw where it had hit the glass and left kind of a little orange a mark on it. It was still on there when I sold the doors years later. I'll never understand how a little screw could do what a rock, flying at me at the speed of sound, couldn't do! Sorry this is no help to your post but I just had to share the dumb butt thing I did.

Piece of cake, do it all the time, remove the weatherstipping on the door where the windows crank down into, then remove the screws, 3, two at top below the exterior weatherstipping, one in the lower door, after you have cranked the window glass down, pull the vent window assembly in towards the rear of the door and pull it up and out. The glass should be free floating in the door, unhook the window crank register from the lower glass and remove, to install reverse the process.
