Q: Rear Window Removal
How do I remove my rear window on my Firebird.
A: A special tool is available that is basically an L-shaped blade with a good handle that will cut the adhesive around the glass so it may be lifted out. All auto glass shops have them.
A: The first (and only) time I tried to remove a windshield was with this type of tool. Insert, twist, and POP! Crack shoots across the glass…. I’m not sure the tool was sharp enough, though…
I believe it’s an art…..
My next attempt will be using Piano Wire (or guitar string, or similar). Poke hole in sealant, push wire through, wrap each end of wire around a stick, and have one person on the inside and one on the outside and slowly and carefully saw around the edge of the window. Well, that’s my next attempt, and I’m sticking with it. Especially after I ruined that windshield
