Purchased Steele Rubber channel for my rear window. Done enough reading and watching videos to find some interesting differences in procedures. Some use sealant, some don't. Some use hardening and/or non hardening sealant. Seems to me use of sealant would be the wisest move but......

When I removed my glass I found no evidence any sealant. I have two questions. Originally, was sealant used at all? Also, what suggestions would previous installers have found to be the most important to success...….and fewer bad words!!! ;-)

Lots of soapy water, good rope style cord and an extra set of hands. Start at the bottom and work up both edges to the top.

My glass guy uses sealant only after the fact if there's a leak. He has a cool pointed tip gun to get it behind the rubber.
