Default Side vent window rubber change

Can anyone tell me how to change the vent window rubber molding? I need to put new in and not sure how to do the change.

Yes I can but it is a bit of a pain in the butt! The easiest way i have found to do it is to pull the big glass out then pull the track/wing window assy out to access the back of the track.

I hear you can get the wing window out without removing the side glass.

You can get it frame and all. I have done it before, just undo the screws, and the bolt inside the door, and twist it to where you are pulling it to the inside of the door. I mean man just wizard that shit out.

Yes you can pull the wing track out with out pulling the big glass but it is much more difficult!

Same procedure here. But it was still a pain. Mine were bought new from LMC along with felts/door seals/ and new window channels and I dont think the fit was all that great. My vent windows rubbers are leaky and didnt quite meet the outer felt, so there is a small gap in between.

Rant over.

This was the LMC product that had this leaking issues? Wow that sucks, I will be doing this really soon myself and I would be pissed if these were to leak on my truck. I might jus call Chevyduty and use them instead!

Don't ya think our one piece door kit looks cooler.
I have worked on plenty of vent glass assemblies before we released our 1pc kit. You can get them to seal great, but you will need to make some snips and cuts on the rubbers and use the correct bottlecap pivot steprivet. The common problem on the vent glass setup is the main pivot point at the bottom where the spring is becomes either broken or loose from wear and tear. It is not completely a lost cause to fix , you just need time and patience. Much luck!

Yessir, I do. I am currently rocking that look for the Summer. Since its my fair weather driver and only drive to work and back, I dont have my side glass or vent windows in. I plan on intalling those in the next couple of weekends as it cools down a little. How about HALF PRICE and FREE word of mouth advertisement as they would be the first set in my area. J/P. You guys seem to have some awesome products and I am strongley considering the flush mount rear glass as well.

The one piece glass is a good look but a very pricey option! An other problem that might also be a problem with this options would be the air flow when the windows are down (which is how I prefer myself).

I spoke with a local body shop and they said they could install the gaskets for me $100 I figure it will be done right.
