Rear sliding windows?

I recently noticed that since getting back from CO, every time I shut the doors on the D, the rear sliding windows "poof" out (frame and all), and pop back in. Kind of a fun game.

Anyway, how are they attached? I started to pry back the edge and noticed double sided tape of some kind. Which is scary. Is that some form of seal or are these actually attached?

Thoughts?

They are actually rivets, not rivnuts. All you have to do is remove the seal around the outside of the window and you will see where the window is held in by about 20-30 rivets. I think they are an odd size rivet. Make sure you get aluminum rivets. Just want to forewarn you, it is a bitch getting the seal back in.

Classic. It couldn't be any other way... I'm sure because the seal is 8 years old and sun dried, it will be more than pliable.

Yes rivets. Spelling foepaw'

I usually ground down a regular rivet to work and use right stuff instead of the seal.

Finally getting around to this. What's the easiest method for removing the outside seal? Mine is super brittle and I couldn't find a good place to start without inevitably marring the surface.

Awe nevermind. Lack of sleep or something. Captain Obvious slapped me upside the head. Drilling those out is not fun. I found 6 total in the lower corner not even attached.

hey pendy
Are you talking about using right stuff for the outside seal or inside seal?? wouldnt outside look a bit funny? getting that OEM out side seal back in is a PITA. order a new one and it won't break on the way in.
