  • 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!

          Rear Window Corner Support
          by Rumbleseater
          The rear window of our '29 Coupe doesn't have the rubber seal around the glass. The glass is presently held in place by to much clear rubber silicone, which has to go. I have the rubber seal, but noticed there are 4 corner supports available to support the rubber (see photo). How exactly do these attach, and are they necessary? Thanks!...

          Installing Window Channels
          by JohnB15632
          Are there any instructions of installing the window channels? Where are they located in relation to the glass? Are they to be installed on center?

          1931 Tudor Rear Side Window Glass Installation
          by Nelson C
          Please advise how a new Rear Side large Window Glass should be installed on a 1931 Tudor Sedan.
          (The old window glass was broken so the old window channels just slid out. Also, the upholstery panel, window moldings, window riser, and rear seat have been removed.)

          Should the new window channels and glass be slid in as one unit?
          Or, should the window channels be installed first,...

          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?

          Any one have a source for the window anti rattler rubber that fits the original metal? the only ones I've found are made to fit the repop aluminum parts.

          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 ?

          Window. Glide
          by Grit Kid
          I need to replace a passenger side rear window glide. Snyders offers a glue in replacement. Yes or no?

          '29 Coupe Rear Window Observation
          by Rumbleseater
          Even though I am a newbie to the Model A world, I have noticed something just doesn't appear correct on the rear window. Lots of clear caulking and exposed surroundings. Doesn't look as bad from the exterior, but the interior leaves a lot to be desired. I'm assuming there might be a rubber moulding that the rear glass is suppose to be set in? The edge of the glass is visible pretty much all the way...

          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?

          1957 T-Bird Rear Window Installation
          by BudP
          The rear window on my '57 T-Bird popped out when my sons-in-laws were lifting off the top to put it into storage. Checking my T-Bird forums, I find this is fairly common. Time passes and rubber gaskets age. I pulled off the cracking and hardened gasket and cleaned a black tar like adhesive off the glass. I ordered and have placed a fresh gasket around the window (it's one piece and was a tight...
