How to replace Door glass in 1952 F-1

Can someone help this newbie out. I need to replace the passanger side door glass (roll up window) in a 1952 F-1. I'm not sure how the glass comes out of the track.
Thank you, Matt

It comes out thru the door access panel hole .Roll the window down .Remove the 2 clips that hold it to the bottom window channel .Roll the window regulator up a little . Window will drop down .Tilt and remove .

52 DRIVER SIDE WINDOW

Hi, I new to this forum. Have a 52 f1. Once you remove the window from the door, the glass itself is attach to a steel U shaped mount. Removing this is tricky so if you don't need to replace the glass, leave it be. If you do, use a rubber hammer gently, no screwdrivers or the glass will break. Also there is webbing in between the glass and the steel mount which will have to be replaced to seat the glass to avoid chipping and excess vibration. Hope that helps.

To remove bottom glass channel on door glass introduce the channel to a heat gun . This will loosen up the welded on glass setting tape from 60 yrs. ago .This worked for me .Later , Denny

Thanks for the tips. I just came back to this post to report I was able to get the Window out but I was not sure on how to get the glass out of the channel.
Thanks, Matt
