Nice write-up. You might want to add what year burb it is. It is different from my '54.

Wow that was quick,looks great.Reading your instructions,you state there are some screws that actually hold the channel weather strip in place ? I did not know this,I will have to keep that in mind when I get to mine.I appreciate you posting this so quick,it will help many others.

Is spreading pliers another name for snap ring pliers ?


Thanks,Tim

Yep, there were three on mine. One at each end of the channel and then one to hold the channel on the top at the opposite end. You'll find them when you take your old stuff out. I tried unscrewing mine on the first window but by the second window, I saw it was easier to just tear out the old channel and try to remove the screws later.

Great write up. I have a 58 Burb with a broken passenger side slider. Its one of my first priorities for repair. It may not be exactly the same, but this will definitely help.


Thanks

Larry
