Help popping front safety window back in?

Hey y'all,
While in the process of first working on my bus, some jerk hole punched in the right front window (this one right here)

In hindsight, OF COURSE those windows are punch out-- I just didn't think about it. Anyway, minimal damage and loss-- the jerk took a screwdriver, scissors and some magnets... good job, bro. Remarkably, the window is intact and I have it and the rubber seal that was originally around it. Anyone have any wisdom on how to get it back IN? I'd love to do it myself if possible, but not sure how to approach the problem.

Thanks!!

If you go to you tube & search windshield installing I would think it would be close to being the same, that's how I installed the windshield in my 67 ford truck.

I would look on youtube for pickup truck rear window installs.
I believe the install involves some stout string, dish soap and some warm weather if possible.

A punch out style should be a little easier? In my adventures over the years of changing truck back glass to sliding back glass a guitar string save all the hassle of regular string.
I put a new front windshield in my bus buy masking taping the edges, some baby oil and a flathead.
Good luck

This is a video I found a while back...
Great explanation! And pretty much the same thing you're trying to do
