Re: Removing glass w/o ruining seals (LostBoyScout)

The side windows on mine popped out pretty easilly - have someone inside put pressure on them with their feet - it gives you a large surface area and minimizes the chance of the glass breaking. The person outside then works on the seal, starting at a corner.
The rear window ended up exploding - so while tempered glass is strong, when it goes it does so violently. The key is even pressure, which is where I screwed up on my rear glass. I got one corner close, so added more pressure there and ended up sending my hand through it. It's much easier to do if you have two people, since one can work the seal while the other works on keeping the pressure even.
