    I have been reading the posts on vent window replacements and have just one simple question, Do the side roll up window have to come out to replace the vent window? Mine is a 77.

    Yes. The front track of the roll up window, is the rear part of the framework for the vent.

    No, I replaced mine with window glass still in. It can be done if you are careful and patient. When removing vent frame, I moved window glass toward inside of door and worked vent frame out.

    I did it both ways
    Window can be left in but I would change the “window run” while doing the vent any way so might as well yank the window out

    I forgot, I did remove inside felt and outer rubber seal to have more room for window movement.

    Yea you leave the big glass in the door. I just pulled both of Mike and redid the vent windows and all weather stripping in the door as it was all gone. My passenger door is a aftermarket door, the vent window came out easy on that side, the driver door was tighter, really tight to get it in and out. The side glass didn't go down quite as far so I am not sure if that was part of the problem or not?
