Anyone have tips/techniques/tricks to re-install Suburban side and rear barn door glass. My body guy says the seals from Precision seem too large.
Thanks guys~!

I use every screw driver I can find to slowly work my way around a inch at a time slowly working the rubber in. With soap some times . Done it that way about 10 times on back windows and the sides.

Now if it's factory tinted windows I wouldn't recommend that way cause its like a windshield and laminated glass and don't like that way. I just found that out the other day lol.

Also is it the flatter style weatherstripping for side glass? The screw driver method doesn't work.

Thanks for the info. It needs a new windshield, so we're just going to let the glass guy do it when he's doing the windshield!
