Remove all the trim. The backpad has four screws near the bottom--remove those and the knob and guide for the engine lid pull, then slide the bottom of the pad forward and the top of it down. Then it should come out. Oh, disconnect the battery and unplug the interior light first!

The side pieces are held on by the upper seat belt anchors and the "coat hook" screws.

The top piece is held on by a bunch of Phillips head screws. They're a pain to get at, since they are buried in the pad. A couple of them point forward, a bunch point downward. Try not to mung up the screw-heads too badly (but you probably will...).

Cut the black goop that holds the window in with a utility knife. Catch the window before it falls inside the car and breaks!!

Remove all the old goop from the window and channel on the body. Clean REALLY well!!! Use new black goop (windshield adhesive), heat it up some with the sun or a hairdryer, press it in. Clamp it there overnight. I used the seat headrests and some towels, plus a bar clamp and wood blocks.

Re-install all the trim and such.

Done. No more rattles!!

thank you much for your help! I have access to a dealerships shop that i can leave my car in overnight. (my dad works there) the most pertinent information was the removal of the black squishy obstacles refered to as interior trim. I appreciate your help, and thank you for telling me how that back pad is held into place.

Speaking of increasing the "quiet" factor---I read in the British Porsche magazine, I think it's called simply "911", about a Brit with a 914 who had put a double rear window in his car. He said it really made a difference in noise transmission.

Since then, I've thought (another "project") about taking two windows to one of these companies that make "thermopane" windows and have an assembly made with argon gas hermetically sealed in. This could conceivably help toward keeping the car cooler/warmer, as seasonally appropriate, in addition to reducing noise.
