Is anyone can point me to link with explanation how I can take off (and put back!) rear window from 80 LC. I am talking about side rear window in cargo area. Mine LC is a basic model and therefore has solid (i.e. non-sliding) rear window.
Thanks a lot for any input.

From inside car use a scewdriver to pry back the rubber starting at a top corner, once you can get your fingers behind ruber slowly work your way along pulling rubber down, you will need strong fingers, put some pressure on the window at the corner you stated at while you work your way across the top and down one side and it should come out. dont worry about using a bitt of force they take a bit to brake, Ive belted these things pretty hard removing them and am yet to brake one.

Use a rope to refit windows, put rope around window rubber sit window in so bottom of rubber is sitting on lip where it should be and starting at bottom work rope around window until all pulled in to place, you may have to get someone to tap on window from outside as you go to push it in, dont push hard on outside as all this will do is pinch rope in rubber and you wont get anywhere. It`s a very easy job, after you do one the other should only take a few minutes.

Thanks - very informative. So my understanding is: put rubber around window (as it going to be at the end) and rope around rubber (where metal lip from the body will be at the end), fit one bottom corner and pulling rope refit whole window. Is it correct?
Thanks again for your time

Its pretty easy to do, you just need to be persistant....and work on one bit of rubber at a time...alot easier taking it out to putting it back...but nothing too hard....just time consuming....hey while your there, i see on ebay a pair of sliding gxl windows....they fit straight in aswell....

Thanks. I like solid much better then sliding. Reason for take it off is to batle with small rust spot under rubber.
