Question Changing window weather strip

Morning All!

Well I finially got the truck back from the workshop after the accident and its looking much healtier - and its soooo much better driving it compared to the tatty little skoda I have too. So now I can get on with finishing all the other jobs I've been wanting to do for a while. No. 1 is replace the perished weatehr strip on the front windows. I have the channel in which the window runs and the wipe pieces at the top of the door.

I realised last night the channel; pieces run right down inside the door for the window to slide all the way down. They look like they just push in but does anyone know how I would get the glass out to change them? Can it be done without removing the glass?

Cheers


Simon

perhaps I wasn't too clear - I am talking about the driver & passenger door glass - not the windshield.

When I did the window channel on my 86 F250, I just pulled the door panel off and rolled the window down. Then you can reach into the door and pull out any remains of the old weatherstrip. The new piece can be fed in from the top, and pushed into place in the track. I think I did end up cranking the window up/down a few times to be able to get the weatherstrip fully seated, but it wasn't too hard to do. Your 92 should be pretty similar, so this should work OK.
