- With the interior rear quarter panels removed from the car, dislodge the (2) large push pins securing the jute padding to the c-pillar.
- Remove the (7) three-eighths quarter glass retaining nuts.
- To safely remove the existing quarter window, you’ll want to separate the old butyl. This is easily done with a plastic pry tool.
- Work your way around the perimeter of the quarter glass.
- Once all of the old butyl is separated, carefully remove the glass from the car. First bring it towards you, then towards the rear of the car to remove the small tab underneath the roof rail molding.
- Remove the large pieces of old sealer with a plastic scraper.
- Once the bulk of the sealer is gone, use a microfiber towel and a waterless wash solution to remove dirt and debris.
- Be sure and go over the entire area with a prep spray and clean microfiber towel before reinstalling the quarter windows. Repeat these steps for the other side.
- If you’re reinstalling the existing OEM quarter windows; reverse the removal procedure, use the quarter window installation kit available on our website, and do not overtighten the retaining nuts.
- If you’re going to be installing new quarter windows of any kind, please reference the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure proper installation.
