I have a Ef Falcon,which has been side swiped.I have worked out that it will cheaper for me to replace the doors than to claim insurance or take the car to a panel shop.But I want to use the same windows as they are tinted.Can anyone out there tell me how to remove them.Thanks for your help.

It isn't easy, if your not sure, get someone who does, less hassle, less chance of breaking something.

It's not too hard, and once you've done one, they're pretty easy. Basically, remove door trims, and undo 2 nuts/bolts that hold the window to the regulator.

Then just pull the window out of the door by hand. This part requires a bit of force, but you have to be gentle, particularly with tinted windows, as it is fairly easy to wreck the tint.

They are very easy as Private9 said, just take it slow and steady so you don't wreck the tint.

The quarters are a different story.

Oops, forgot that bit! I've found though I can do it without removing this seal, but I can't remember whether that was front or rear though! You definitely have to remove for one of them though, but you'll know as you pull them out.

i think you can take the front out without removing the seal and the back you need to pull the seal out
