QUESTION: its the bigger of the two the roll up window

Hi Joseph,

         You will have to get a hold of a Big Daddy Rivet Gun to do this job
as the door glass has metal clips that are riveted onto the window regulator with 1/4 inch round 1/2 inch Aluminum rivets with special flange .

In certain cases the vent also has to come out just to get the glass in and your vent is all one part that is attached to the guides and rubber channels Not FUN!

In short it is a BIG pain in the neck and should be done by a professional.

If you try and use bolts instead of rivets they came loose over time and the glass falls down!

OH and I forgot to tell you about the removal of the old rivets, Total Nightmare if they start to spin inside!  Here is how you spare yourself the Trouble !

If you take everything apart and clean out all the glass from every glass channel that is rubber only { not where its riveted leave that),  and have it all set for a glass guy to rivet it in for you,  you could have it done for as little as 25.00 and believe me it is well worth it to have it done right and save you all that time!

If you have any other questions let me know!     
         Hope This Helps! Derek =D
