Removing Windows

Hey All,

I am going to try and remove the window sections of my doors this weekend and replaces the seal, as I am getting water into this area.

I also want to see how hard it is to remove them from my truck, but was wondering, what type of tool do I need in particular?

Does anyone have a link to what I need?

Thanks in advance.

Kevin

This is a how-to - found it after searching door top removal

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...1&postcount=24

Taken from here:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ead.php?t=8084

Tools Needed:
  • 15mm deep well socket and ratchet
  • Vice grips
  • Screwdriver or small pry bar
If windows are difficult to remove, we recommend these additional tools:
  • 15mm open end wrench
  • Crescent wrench
  • #2 Phillips screw driver
  • Hammer
  • Round file
Additional good items to have:
  • WD-40
  • M8x1.25 tap and tap handle
  • Silicone spray
  • Silicone or Permatex "Right Stuff"
  • Touch up paint
But, also make sure your seal is facing the right way.

The rest, the search button is your friend.

I'm not going to Google things anymore, I'm just going to post it here and Josh will give me all the answers I need. Again, such a helpful fellow. Your search expertise is amazing.

BTW this is not aimed at the original post.

No no - that will not work. If you come off as lazy (not trying to find the answer on your own) I will not help you. This was on the verge of that, but it looked like he tried a little.
