Hello all, just starting to remove my side windows for new window channels and gaskets
Question, does the the outer molding hold the rubber gasket in? My rubber is really weathered and hard. I want to make sure before trying to remove the outer molding; it’s seams pretty thin metal
Are there any tips to removing thirds without damaging the molding?

** Lou, The outer window molding does not hold the seals/gaskets. They are for appearance only. Be sure to remove all the inside trim and all seals before trying to remove the outer trim. The outer trim is pretty fragile so use extreme caution getting them off. If you damage one finding a replacement is just about zero. Very pricey if you do find one. Just finished replacing all the seals and glass in a 53 Suburban. Took me a week to get it done.

Here is my write up for install. Just go in the reverse order for removal. Or start at the bottom of the page, if you will. AD Suburban Side Window Install

Here is another tip. If you have damaged or do damage that outer trim, and good chrome shop can restore the shape for you. At least mine said he could.

Mark, does the felt channel on run on three sides because of the stationary glass?

The felt channel runs around the whole circumference.

Think of it this way. You build this window in layers. The first layer is the stationary glass and the 3/8"x3/8" rubber, because the stationary glass doesn't fill up the whole opening horizontally. So you need that 3/8" rubber to fill the gap. The next layer will be the channel. Sure, a sliding glass rests in that channel, but something needs to fill that whole circumference of the window opening. There is no other material to do that except for the felt channel. All those layers are held in with the inner window trim.
