Window Removal

As you may have guessed, I put the window on the back burner as I had many other things to do on my 36 Ford in the mean time.
The way I removed the window was to first remove the window regulator from the door. To do this you must have someone hold the glass as you drop the mechanism and guide the arms of the regulator along the track to one of the two small opening in the runner for each arm.
Next, you firmly grasp the window and lift it straight up as it has a large frame that extends about a foot below the window and into tracks on each side.

dinger What 35 says makes sense. I just had the windows in my coupe (36 ford)installed, then the door windows had to be replaced, crank windows and power windows will often be different sizes, crank windows a touch smaller. My glass guy installed ALL my glass for $300, this is a 5 window. For that kind o money, I will watch the expert work and not have to worry about messing something up. If you don't have rust or silicone problems, they are not hard to get apart. Look at the door and see what it takes to get the channel loose, the metal that holds the window at the bottom. Then it's mostly a matter of turning the window one way or another to pop it out. One thing most folks tend to do is over-think the process, these cars are made in a factory where speed in assembly is essential, there is usually an easy way to do anything. And most makes of cars will do things the same way, there's not that many ways to skin a cat. Good luck. Dan

Again if you have glass coverage let the glass co. do it. If not you have to take the door panel off, if you have inside door handles and window cranks they will have to come off, if you have a widow molding along the inside top of the door that might have to come off. Pull the door panel off, and with the widow down some take the bottom part that hold the glass out of the Part that cranks up, once you get that out, turn the glass 90 degrees, and push up though the slit in the door where the window goes. you have it out. By the time you have the door panel off, the glass guy will have the window out, and half way back to the shop to get the new one.
Getting the bottom piece off the glass, sometimes can be hard as they use a glue or sealer on it. You don't want to break the glass, because nobody might have a pattern for it.

can't be hard. the only thing I know is, the window usually has to get rolled down a bit
That's what I thought. One reason I don't break them they might need them as a pattern.

1936 ford cabroilet

[QUOTE=matt167]I'v never been nice to old glass. just roll the window down a little, and hit it on the edge with a 1/4" socket wrench.. you will need to vacuum up lots of glass tho.. J/K

I'm not sure for your particular car, but www.chevsofthe40s.com has very good illistrations of the door/ door hardware for '37- up in the catalogs, so you should be able to figure out how to get it out pretty easy, as a '36 isn't much diffrent in design[/QUOT

matt167 Not to be a smart a-- but I don;t think chevs from the 40s will help much in this case, he has a 36 ford cabriolet.

I would take it to a glass company or if you have glass coverage on your car, they will come to you, take the glass out, take it back to the shop get the right shade cut a new one, bring it back and put it in.

The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
