great writeup man, thanx for doing it. I don't need to reseal mine but I do want to ditch my solid glass for a sliding window and this will come in handy when I "upgrade"

Just got my buytl tape. Will be doing this mod in spring. The previous owner used silcon on the top part of the window... looks taky and is starting to turn yellow since it's not meant for this purpose... I'll have to scrape it off but glad I found this thread.

Question. Is there a way to get the outside window trim that is plastic/rubber replaced? Mine is 10 years old and it's starting to show it's age... starting to crack a little..

You can buy new weather strips for the window

Do you know where? Everywhere I have looked it's attached to the back glass... so a replacement means dumping the $250 for a new back sliding window, which is no bueno...

Just did this on my '05.
Very good write-up. Mine had five bolts across the top, one on each side, and three across the bottom. All where 9mm.
I purchased the window sealer at a local Car Quest. 3M Window-Weld Ribbon Sealer.

Yeah i know this thread is old but I'm about to do my window today and I have found the window ribbon seal that the How-To says to use but which size is it. Or does it even matter? I have 1/4, 3/8, and 5/16 wide to choose from.
