Rear door glass replacement

Hi all, I have a new to me 300 sel 4.5 that has been in the family since new. I was towing the car home (1500) miles and had a rear window break from a rock. I have a new window now, but am having quite a time getting the new one in. Can anyone offer some pointers?

So far I have replaced a seized fuel pump, and rebuilt the mps, getting the fuel back in check but she runs again after sitting idle for a couple of years.

Thanks

it s been decades since i did that , you are talking about a rear door ?? if so , remove the chrome stip and the fuzz strip , and the widow rubber channel , then the window will slide in ????

Yes, Rear door window, I have the inner door panel off and inner trim, the rear triangle window and trim separator, having a bear of a time getting the outer trim off.

I will most def get some pics up and get my profile rolling.
Car needs some paint bad, but looking to enjoy it first. My granddad did euro delivery with it in '72.

you dont remove the triangular window , you remove the outer chrome strip , the 2 fuzz strip , and the window rubber chanel , this create a large gap , the window will go right in .

Agillot, I am stuck trying to get the outer chrome strip off, I can get the rear of it off (after the triangle window came out, but can't get where the main window is.

Rumb, to answer your question, the seal gets cut out and the window comes out, the trim separator is bolted in the bottom with 2 bolts and one screw at the top.

reason I'm asking is I got a spare rear door to replace mine. it is bare; nothing on it , so I need to transfer all the trim, rubber, etc. So are you saying you have to get a new rubber window seal to change things?

sorry for the hijack.

Rumb, I had to cut the old seal which ruined it. I am sourcing a new one now, think I am to calling the classic center now.
Most old seals get to hard on the outside to seal nice again. Hoping to get by with the old wipers and channel, think I can clean them up.

Talked to someone about removing rear triangle window. Remove lower trim. remove nut/bolt that holds 2 vertical strips on. remove window. then you can slide entire triangle with gasket forward to remove all.

Hope this helps someone.
