Question HELP!-Side window removal question

I'm in the middle of replacing the driver's side window on my 911SC Targa. Somebody had installed what I believe to be a coupe's window and it doesnt fit right. I've removed the window, but I'm not sure how to take the glass out of the channel bracket. My car door is in pieces and I'm not sure how to proceed!

It appears that there is some goop in the channel holding the glass. What kindof goop is this and how do I take the old glass out of it?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

I did it bare from the glass to the lower rubber/channel mounting.. but it may come loose.. guys around here have used various stuff.. clean the rubber with some kind of paint thinner or alcohol.. the glass alignment is important with the install.. then keep a eyeball on it for awhile to see how it all settles out.. you may want to check if you have the newer hardened regulator spring center pin.. there are various flavors of the hard pin.. if you got power windows check out for any voltage drop at the sw, you can open them up and clean/grease them, but it can be a delicate maneuver..

It took a couple of hours to get the glass out of the channel and the rubber went with it. I used an exacto knife and really had to work at it prying and such. There's nothing in the channel but bare (a bit rusted) metal.

I bought some Permatex Black Super Weatherstrip Adhesive. Do you think that will work?

it's probably dried out. a new one is about $10, I think.. I guess the weatherstrip is a decent shot.. but, IMO, if the glass/rubber/metal channel isn't very snug, then get a new one

This window was replaced before and there was nothing but some sortof black RTV stuff holding the glass in the channel. Is that correct? Is there supposed to be something else? It looks like I'm going to have to do the same thing, but I sure would like to make it right.

Thanks for the pic, that's EXACTLY what I needed. I owe you one! You da man!

Looks like some previous owner just glued the glass into the channel...what a dork. Looks like it's gonna be awhile before I put her back together again

Oh yeah... don't forget the regulator spring center pin, that comes in different flavors.. as long as your way in there/hands dirty.. a soft old pin is a PIA.. make sure your year had the hard pin.. if Wayne can't help on that info, I'd then call Stoddard

Hey Matt,

I have the same year Targa and need to do something similar. I can't figure out though whether the channel the window sits in separates from the regulator or whether I have to pry the window from its channel while sill in the door.

How did that work for ya?

TIA!
