Tips on removing passenger side rear window?

I need to replace the chrome trim that sits just underneath the glass, but for the life of me I can't get it back in. Actually broke it, and had to have the dealer order a new one. But now I can't get it back in!
Dealer claims they have to remove the glass, at $130/hr, ugh.

Any tips on how to remove the glass myself?

Thanks

Are you talking about 2 or 3 in the figure below? Neither one of those requires glass removal, but the door panel needs removed for the inner one.

I assumed he was talking about the rear rear window.

The quarter window is glued in place, similar to the windshield. You remove the inner trim panel and use a razor knife to cut the urethane glue between the glass and the fence. Then carefully push the glass from the opening. I didn't see that the trim piece is available separately.

Then you need to glue the window back....

I'm talking #3 in that pic, yes!
I guess I'm quite clumsy, as I broke it trying to get it out. Bought a new one, but can't get it to go back in. Maybe I bent the metal clips on the door? (it looks like there are 3 metal clips on the outer part of the door...)

Thanks again, guys

#3 is on the exterior of the door. Its suppose to go on with hand pressure. But if the tabs on the door are damaged, I dunno. Can you peek into the other door and see how the tabs line up? Looking at the window removal instructions, if you need to do that to get at the tabs, it seems to be a PITA.

I thought about removing the trim belt from the other door to see how the tabs line up, but since I did such a crappy job on this one, I dunno...
Was hoping someone else did it already and had some suggestions on how it goes in

It all just seems so simple in training yards or live extrications.

Also, btw shout out to anyone who uses tinting film. It keeps all the glass together and makes it way easier to remove after breaking it.

For whomever is interested: the dealer lied, I didn't need to have the glass replaced. They actually also told me that I would need to have the entire door replaced!!!! That's when I left, went to a local body shop, and 10 minutes later the problem was fixed.

It's wild how incompetent the dealer service techs sometimes are, and the answer to reinstalling the trim was "you will need to replace the entire door".

You should PM member jeepcares here. They may be interested in hearing of this dealer experience.

Good point, coldcase.

Will do. It is important they know of the hell this dealership put me through, and the lies they actually can tell to a customer

FYI.....JeepCares was able to come through, and make this experience a little less painful. Good to see they actually care about making their customers happy. I just wish the dealership/service centers would have the same attitude...at least sometimes.
