Angry Window Seal

I'm replacing the seals for my alpine windows before the hardtop (aluminum) goes on for the winter, but they are a PITA!!
Any suggestions: I can get the windows in easy enought but the little bead that needs to go in around the seal is impossible. I've been trying the soap and water bit. Do I just need to push harder or is there a trick??

Thanks guys I feel like a douche on this one but its really pissing me off!!!

-S

There is a special tool that spreads the seal and allows you to feed the inner strip in. It looks like a wierd screwdriver. Try a glass shop or tool dealer. The one I bought has 4 different size tips for different applications as a lot of automakers use similar designs.

I've done it without tools - but it is a huge pita.

Lots of soapy water from a spray bottle is key, I used a bic pen with the ink part removed to spread the channel and if you pull on the filler piece it stretches out and will go in better.

Its almost impossible with the top on the truck.
