If you've got an '87 to '93 Fox Mustang hatchback with the rotten quarter window disease, and you've decided that a set of covers just isn't for you, then you're faced with completely replacing those old quarter windows. Follow along, and I'll show you the steps required to get the job done. Carefully remove the side headliner trim pieces from above the door opening.

Remove the seat belt shoulder strap anchor bolt. Remove all of the trim panel retaining screws. You'll have three at the front, one at the top, one through the coat hook, one midway down. Remove the four screws and the rear headliner trim piece. Then remove the four screws going down the back of the panel. Finally, you can remove the two screws retaining the hatch cover mount.

Gently pull the panel inward. Repeat for the other side. Remove the nine quarter window retaining nuts. From the outside, pull the window away from the body and remove it from the car. Clean away all the remaining butyl sealer and thoroughly clean the area behind the window. Take your new quarter window in your 50Resto install kit, and place new butyl sealer on the window.

Carefully position the new window in place and loosely install the nine new retaining nuts. Starting in the middle, slowly start snugging down the retaining nuts, working your way around the window several times until the window is fully seated. Do not over tighten. Be very careful throughout this process. While you've got your interior panels taken loose, it's a great opportunity to go ahead, clean them up, maybe even do a little paining if you need to.
