Getting the window seated

Hello. I have a '64 Nova wagon. The right front passenger door window channel let go of the window. Now I have a replacement channel. It's in the door but I can't get the glass to seat fully with the rubber piece inside the channel. There's not much room to work with and I'm trying not gut the door. Any suggestions?

I saw a glass man do it once. He sprayed a lubricant on the rubber and channel and the glass and rubber just slid right in.

Call a glass place and see what they use. It may have a a penetrant like WD-40.

I'm afraid I'll have to gut the door. (What I was trying to avoid). The opening is not big enough to get the window out of the door. That looks like the only way I'll have any full access to the window and the channel. I'm worried I won't be able it get the window and the attaching channel back in. as it is I'm having trouble removing the vent window to free the side channel.

OK the window regulator is off and out of the way. Very little motion with the vent window/channel. I guess next is the door latch remote assembly.

OK. I've hit a snag.
The remote door latch arm connects to a shaft that connects to the actual door latch. Two of the screws holding the latch on the end of the door are holding fast and won't budge. On the other end, the piece that goes through the door for the inside latch handle is being held on by some some sort of fastener. I can't see how to get this fastener off with out breaking it.
