Replacing weatherstrip on a W111

Can anyone advise on how best to replace the vertical weatherstrip on the rear side windows on a W111 coupe? These are the ones that seal the gap with the front windows. The old ones sit inside a profiled chrome strip but I don't want to pull them out only to find the new ones don't go back in that easily, especially since the windows, when wound up completely, stay inside the body about 3 inches. Does this mean that the interior panel that covers the mechanism to lower and raise the window needs to come off?
Thanks for suggestions and tips,
