the hardest part about this install was removing the glass from the channels. it seemed someone at the factory thought it would be a good idea to glue the panel into the receiver channels. they were wrong. it's supposed to be a floating panel. all you need to do is remove the entire door by lifting it at a slight angle off of its carrier arms. shake out and vacuum any loose glass, but please be careful. just because it's supposed to be safety glass doesn't mean it won't still cut you. take a straight blade screw driver and dislodge any stubborn remnants from the channels. completely remove the bottom channel. with your door in an upside down position, insert the replacement panel into the top channel, making sure you have it facing in the right direction and that the window lines up with the door window. place the lower channel on the exposed end of the panel. make sure both channels completely receive the panel. center the panel in the opening and carefully replace the screws in the lower channel. do not over tighten. turn your door right side up and re-install on the carrier arms. nice job. you just saved yourself a ton of cash. took me all of ten minutes. shouldn't take you a whole lot longer.
