Question About Window Removal

I want to pull the windows on my bus, clean them up, and put them back in place. I haven't pulled any of the interior metal panelling. So my question is: what is the easiest way to pull them out? Do I need to remove the metal paneling surrounding the windows?

You will have to remove the expanded metal prisoner screens. Be careful of razors or shivs stuck in cracks.

Other than that, I got nothing as I have no windows.

I chased this rust bucket 'cuz I wanted the driveline - 8.3 w/ 100K. Scrappers paid-up.

$3200 in the end ... I'm surprised it went for so much. Next time

I have to remove all the windows in ours to remove the wall panels. I am not looking forward to it at all.

Not too bad- just have a plan where to place glass before it's out.

With the rubber-seal windows, there is usually a piece of stiffer rubber welting inside the softer rubber seal. Gently pop-it out w/ small screwdriver at seam. Once that is out, the pressure is released and window *should * come out easily. Be gentle on rubber seals as they are pricey.
