Supercab Rear Passenger Window Removal

fryntrz
Does anyone have some insight on removing the supercab passenger windows?  I have a new windshield removal tool coming to attempt removal from the interior.  Not much room for error and it will be a delicate task as I don’t want to damage the rubber gasket that sits between the glass and sheet metal.  I don’t really recall ever seeing replacements from the usual parts sources either when I think about it.

I looked at them when I was gutting my cab and was thinking a paddle wedge tool pushed in from the inside then worked around would pop it out. Would be a slow process. I opted to leave them (glass, not trim) in place though so never tried it.
Subscribed to see how it works out for you.

I haven't seen replacements either. Speaking of - if you end up having them tinted, talk to the shop about how they trim them. The first shop that did mine did a terrible job and to put it mildly, I was not happy about it. Ended up having a second shop clean them up and re-tint. Just a heads up.

Go to Documentation/Body/STATIONARY GLASS - WEATHERSTRIP SEAL.  That section from the factory shop manual should help.

  The hardware store in my home town had the motto of "Yes, we have it".  And I like to think that's our motto here.  But sometimes you have to ask the librarian where it is.

First day off and my windshield removal tool came a day early so I gave one side a shot.  After finding that diagram from Gary, I left the tool on the bench out of fear of damaging the window gasket.  

I pushed off the exterior moulding using the studs in a criss crossing sequence.  It took a bit of coaxing breaking the stud grasp from the tape but it popped eventually.




I used a heat gun on the sheet metal at the bottom of the window from the inside, and used a 45* trim tool in the two corners to work it away.  After the bottom was opened up, I was able to pull with one hand and push with the other around the B pillar.  Wasn’t too bad, quicker than I thought!  I put work gloves on since I was handling glass, luckily the tape never stuck and aided the process. My tape ball grew as I used it to pull itself off the window assembly and cab.






I couldn’t find a part number on the assembly, but pulled it up later.  I only found one side online NOS, if I could land the pair I would jump on them.

Thanks for the heads up about the tint.  Even though I’m a long ways out from it, tint is something I’ve been dreading.  Very few older vehicles around so I’d be relying on the professional hand to figure out the rear quarter and vent window glass - I’m not confident the skill set is here locally.  The interior trim won’t hide much for edges either.  I have also come across laser cut bullnose kits online, if I can find it in a quality film I’ll attempt that myself.

Well done!  And good pictures with explanations will help the next person that does that.  Thanks!

Nice work!
In case you are wanting to replace the nuts: http://forum.garysgaragemahal.com/Supercab-Rear-Quarter-Window-Nuts-tp39696.html
If you need a replacement or spare, you might have luck at a jy. One of my quarter window trim pieces had a dent in the center bar so replaced it with a jy one.

Since you have your glass portion out you are in good shape for having it tinted. I'd think they/you would be able to slightly lift up the rubber around the glass and tuck the film under it. Not sure if the glass can be removed entirely without stretching the rubber too much or not.

This is exactly the thread I needed to read. I didn't realize I needed to remove the interior panels to get these bezels off. Thanks!!
