If it's like my '96 then you "just" need a reciprocating saw & flat stiff plastic paddle (like a putty knife but plastic), instead of the normal saw blade. That's all the glass guy used to remove it from my '95 SC1 parts car to put on my '96 SC2.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

That's all the guy did, though I'd imagine a metal putty knife would be apt to scratch the crud out of the glass.


He went from the inside of the car, and ran the sawzall all around the window cutting the "glue" roughly in half. Not sure what he used to clean the "glue" completely off the glass, but he had it all off before putting new "glue" on the car, then set the glass in place and pressed it in.

Looked like a really simple procedure that the lack of info on here makes seem ridiculously complicated.

New rear quarter glass in my case would have been $230 (windshield for '97 SC1 from same company was $180) but they were able to swap it for $100.

Why the h*ll is this piece made of glass?

I've been trying for years to figure out how to get it off, and now there's a leak behind there, I have to.

Default Re: 99 sc2 rear quarter glass

I'm going to add my observations with the rear quarter glass on my 2001 SC1

I had been hunting a little leak for a while now, and was determined to get the door molding off, but could never see how to get that quarter panel off.
I didn't even know it was glass.
I pried up a bit with a flat bar to see how it was put on and I broke it.
I cleaned up the glass (involving taking quarter panel fender off..)

It's pretty much put on with a thick consistent bead of caulk/adhesive or similar from the factory. The bead goes along about 2" inside the edge all the way around.
There's 2 more rectangles of caulk/adhesive inside that bead, towards the front.

I would NOT want to try using a sawzall. The only way I could see is a long flexible (sharp) blade... going all the way around.

If you see the cones from the inside (one blue, black, and white) they are just there to help with locating it when installing; they are not fasteners of any kind.
