Ok, I must be doing something wrong but I have tried and tried without success..

I removed all my power window regs and glass to try and replace my bailey channels on my ED
with EF/EL bailey channels..After seeing that the front glass was a tight fit (due to the EF/EL channels) I simply sourced the best EB/ED rubbers I could find..Now, I easily re assembled the front doors without a problem..My issue is with the rear windows..I am trying to figure out the procedure for installation is as I have tried insatlling the glass first then rubber but the glass won't go into the rubber..I have tried installing the rubber first but glass won't fit into the rubber..

I am hoping somone can tell me the proper way to to this..Thanks in advance.. :D

Hmmmm. From memory, I recall I installed the rubbers first, then undid the bottom bolts of the bailey runners so they could move. Then I slid the glass down into the door, but rotated so one corner went in first, and then once in the door turned to the correct orientation. Then I attached the window to the winder mechanism, wound the window up, and then bolted the bailey runners back into place.

Hope that helps.

Thanks mate.. I will give that a shot.. I remember when I tried to insert the glass with the rubber in place I could only get one side of the glass into the rubber, even when turned on it's side..The glass being curved doesn't help..Thanks again, :D

Also make sure you have removed the outer weather strip that runs along the outside of the door.

Gives more room.
