Secret hand shack

Ok what is the secret to installing the window crank channels on the lower door glass.=)

I busted up the old channels and chipped up the glass trying different ways and now have new one and do not want to bust these ones up.

Thanks a bunch

Might not be recommended, but after many attempts using Windex glass cleaner & even dish soap, I wound up turning a flat screw driver to open the channels just a little bit - still a very tight fit, but at least possible & the rubber grabs well. Haven't had a problem with them.

Hesitant to try the screwdriver technique but will give it a try this week end and report back.

I cut a channel in a piece of wood and slid it on the glass, put 2 clamps on put some pressure on it then smacked it with a hammer. This technique put a bend in the channel but its on.

Did it on all 4 windows. Then had to redo 2 front ones because I put them on backwards (I know, they are technically the same, but but my inner OCD'ed alter ego wanted the glass labels matching).

KY Jelly and gentle mallet tapping. Worked like a damn and then washes off with water.

Being able to wash away the lube makes this a great idea.

Yes, for easier pulling of the wiring harness through the frame 🙂
You actually can and I actually did.

After all, that’s what the product has been designed for: easier sliding of large items through tight spaces 🙂

If your modesty doesn't let you buy KY, then just buy glycerine. I've used it for window rubber installation for ages.


I used to use dishwashing soap, but found that it would stick around after the install and would start corrosion trapped under the rubber.
