Hi, probably best to have two people doing it; one working from the inside pulling the cord & one outside pushing the glass in. I found the easiest way is to put the glass in the rubber (. & chrome trim if fitted) wrap a good strong cord around the outer lip of the rubber, use plenty of soapy water, pick a side to start & go from the bottom of the centre post around to the top. I also used one of our cutlery knives to run around the inside lip of the seal to help it along in places, gave it a few brave thumps to get it seated in, swore a bit & spent about 15 mins doing it. If you' re refitting old glass it will be more brittle than new so more care needed. Hope this helps, cheers Ju.
We struggled like buggery for about 4 hours doing my dads 56 gmc and in the end we got a local lad who does auto glass for a living to come round and do it........he did it in about 15-20 minutes. One thing we did notice was how he wasn't afraid to give it a right good wack with his hand, they are tougher than you think! Cheers, Smiffy
