Unzip it from right to left, pull the zipper off of the track at the bottom left corner. Pull the bottom of the window, straight out from the body of the vehicle to remove the tailgate bar out of the brackets. The window should now be completely free of the vehicle. Now you can either remove the tailgate bar by sliding it to the side or you can leave it in.

Mine has 3 zippers. Two up each side, and one on the top.

They both stay on the softop itself, but you can pull away the window.

The reason for 2 zippers is so you can unzip both sides to the top, and then roll up the rear window. There is 2 straps on the softop that hold the rolled up window on.

If it is a bestop, you unzip the 3 zippers completely, and it comes out! Thats it. Its not a complicated part.

We got it. Two zippers. One zipper track. Pull the right-most zipper along the zipper track until it meets the left-most zipper at the bottom left corner of the window. Then, hold down both zippers with your left hand while pulling the zipper track out of the zippers with your right.
