  • Any tips on installing rear window on 36 Ford

    I broke the window on the first try, got my second one and trying to come up with a game plan, I have the rubber and it seems to be just a press fit, but pretty tight. I've taken a dye grinder and cleaned up the resting place this time and will soap it up good, am I missing anything?

    Silicone spray works good on window run rubbers and things like that. Is your glass laminated or tempered?

        Have a look at this video. It will give you the general idea. I have refitted auto glass many times using a similar method. But the rubber has to be new or nearly new to be flexible enough. Good Luck!

          removal of glass B-160 rear doors
          by richsfords
          I tried to search but no luck,
          I am sending my doors out for paint and want to remove the glass and cranks and such. Must the glass be forced from the track at the bottom? the felt tracks side need to come out at the same time?

          Window regulators by Vintique
          by Hazelhoff
          The Vintique window regulators absolutely do not fit my 29 Tudor doors. The mounting studs are way too high, I guess some 3 mm. The regulator is sitting too close to the window glass. The arm cannot pass the glass rails. Are those from Snyders correct ?

          Rear Window Gasket
          by JohnB15632
          Yesterday, I successfully removed the rear window from my 31 SW 4D TS. I was able to retrieve the gasket. In surveying the gasket, I could not find the juncture of the ends.

          When I reinstall the gasket on the rear window, do I just mate the two ends, do I glue the two ends, in short, how do I reinstall the gasket on the rear window?

          Drivers Window Creeps up while driving
          by CSPIDY
          For some reason my drivers side window will creep up about and inch and half while I am driving.
          pulled the interior door panel and really didn't see any reason for this. although you can easily pull the window up by simply pulling up on the glass, any thoughts?...
