I sprayed mine with silicone lube and pulled it through with pliers while feeding it along with the other hand or a helper would be ideal, didn't have any dents that I recall but I bet if it was lubricated you could manage it, seems narrow. It's also far enough below the door you can push the trim to where it stops and cut the remaining off the top. Only you (and all of us) would know it was there.

Maybe you could search under "repairing dents in trim" and variations and see what comes up. Obviously you're at a disadvantage having glass so close to the work area.

Rear wheel well rust mistery.

While cleaning the rear window panel I found the sunroof drain.

Is a black hose that dewaters inside the window panel just infront of the well.

I made a video for better reference.

Is this the cause of the well rust?

If the drains get blocked the water will remain inside the panel for a while.

This could be a cause of the trunk well rust, do you have the rubber outlets still in yours? Often water comes in through the trunk seal and also around the taillights, next time you're out in the rain (or wash with the spray directed along these areas) bring her into the garage and see where water is running down. Someone else, wish I could recall who, had the ingenious notion to put a bit of talc on the inner panels so you can see the trail left by emerging water and find it's source. Go light so you have less cleanup afterwards!

I resealed my trunk and lenses and put a plugin instead of the rubber vented drain plugs since no water can get in my trunk now. I don't have a sunroof tho so you will probably still want to keep the drain plugs. Your window seals look great, a fulfilling job I know!

Turn for the left rear window.

This is what I did to replace the rear window seals. These are not instructions. I'm sure someone has the proper procedure. Be careful using the acetone is extremely flamable!

1 Remove rear seat.
2 Remove rear panel.



3 remove top frame, 5 big phillips srews.


4 Separate the felt holder from frame.


5 Remove felt



6 Remove window from frame. Two phillips and one 10mm bolt.





7 Slide window out.



8 Remove slider frame, or whatever the name is. Sorry for my ignorance.


It has two bolts at the bottom.


9 Its tricky but you have to move the elevator up and down, to slide the channel out of the frame.



10 Remove the other felt.


11 Soak the old seal in acetone, IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA, to remove from the window frame.

Use a block of wood and very gentle hammer taps until straightened.

Grubeguy, I will do, I still have a lot to learn and that is why I'm in this forum.
