J Truck rear slider removal.

Ok, like the title says, is there any secrets, tips, how-tos in taking a rear sliding window out of a mid 80's j-truck (without the help of a BFH, or cutting the gasket).

Thanks.
Mike

Yes, the gasket has a split in it. Find the split, seperate the sections and "unzip" it using a flat screwdriver. A lil teflon spray speeds things along.

There is a seam on the outside of the gasket. Take something not too sharp and get in the seam. You can then "unlock" the weatherstrip. Do this all the way around. Get inside, push on the bottom of the window frame, remove the window from the gasket.

hhuh, a seam, I'll have to look harder.

THANKS!

Is the seal re-usable in general?
