To replace the window seal, you first have to remove the vent window assembly from the door. After it is removed, the nut and spring on the bottom of the window has to be removed. Then remove the glass and frame from the vent assembly frame. Then gently remove the rubber off of the frame and install the new one after you replace the top vent bar seals. Reverse the window removal procedures to reinstall the glass and frame. The top vent bar seals requires a special tool to remove and replace the rivets you get with the replacement seal. You need to replace the top vent bar seal before reinstalling the new vent window rubber. When I replaced my top vent seals, it was fairly easy with my removal/installation tool.

The metal glass run between the vent & doorglass has a phillips screw at the top under the door weatherstrip. I usually remove that screw, with the doorglass down & glass run (felt) pulled down at the top just enough to allow the metal part to move as you force the ventglass into place. lube the vent gasket with silicone spray or any good wet lubricant and force the glass in, bottom 1st. If this makes you too anxious, remove the 10 mm attachment that retains the metal glass run at the lower end of the part. To get to it, you will have to remove the door panel. Good luck
You need to remove the door panel and remove the window glass. Then you will need to unbolt the track that the wing window mounts into. Wing windows usually have screws under the weatherstrip that hold the top in.
