Default Reseal windows help

I need input on how to reseal my back window. The sealant on there now is garbage, and I would like to know what product(s) to use to remove the existing sealant and what product(s) to use to re-do it. Also could someone explain how I would go about doing this. (not very smart when it comes to doing stuff myself)
Thanks

Pics would be nice. If you can't do pics can you describe where it needs to be sealed.? i.e. Stationary piece or sliding piece? Between pieces of glass or molding around window?

Moulding around entire window. It's a slider window, like kinda shown in my avatar.

Buy some FLOWABLE silicone windshield sealer then follow the directions. This stuff flows into the small gaps around the rubber.

AZone, NAPA other parts stores has this sealer.

Use a razor to cut the rubber away. Try not to tear this rubber you will use it again. Once it is all off clean off all old silicone. Get new black silicone sealant for automotive windows (available at auto pats store on Lowes/ Home Depot). Apply silicone, replace black rubber before silicone dries. All done.
