vent window removal

Postby fireguyfire » Thu Nov 09, 2017 5:31 pm

I'm trying to remove the vent windows out of my 1970 d100 so that I can then remove the door glass and the doors as I am in the middle of a full resto.
I removed the 2 bolts at the front of the door, but the vent window is still holding rock solid in the door.
Can someone tell me what I need to do to remove the vent windows? I dont want to break anything trying to remove them wrong.

there is a screw inside the door under the vent window that you must take out. you must take the door panel off to get to the screw.

I just want to make a correction on the removal of the screw. it is not removed from underneath, you just have to push the rubber gasket on the bottom of the vent window to get access to the screw. sorry I was mistaken on my first reply.

Seems I remember a hole in the rubber to access that screw. Some kind of a clip at the top also that holds it in the frame. Usually rusted and a real *#%^$ to remove.

I must be blind; spent a half hour with a 90 degree dental pick and a flashlight; used the pick to pull up the rubber seal of both vent windows all around the opening on the inside of the door, especially along the bottom and I cant seem to locate either of those screws; is it along the bottom of the vent window on the inside under the black rubber gasket where it meets the top of the door?

Maybe these pictures will help you out. NOTE: ONE of my two doors did NOT have a screw at the bottom of the rubber area. Maybe yours does not have one?? Also, there is a bolt at the bottom of the window track that you need to remove to take out the vent assembly.
