Question 108 Driver's Vent window

Hi All,

I recently purchased a 68 280SE. The driver's vent window was broken, for lack of the proper term, at the little bullet looking piece that holds the top in place. I purchased a replacement window - which turns out to be the wrong tint - and removed the broken vent window. How does one remove that bullet looking piece so that I can put the new vent window in?

Additionally this vehicle is missing the radio antennae which should be passenger side front fender mounted. How does one replace that missing antennae?

I appreciate any and all assitance.

With the right front of of the car jacked up and the front wheels turned to the right, you will see an access cover held in place with 8 mm? screws inside the wheel well. Remove that cover, clean out the mud and leaves and then you will see the rest of the antenna! Any reputable auto glass shop can advise on the vent window issue.
