you need a windshield remover, has a piano wire on it,
or you could try to start cutting with knife inside the car all around start at one spot apply pressure keep going.
Now make sure to disconnect neg. battery or you could pop airbags to install new one make sure all the framing is completely clean no old urethane cut v into urethane tube and apply high bead of about 3/4" you have to apply alot of force to set it, professionals have suction cups that apply to glass and tye rope around both seats overnight. dont drive for 12 hrs as your efforts will have gone to waste by breaking your urethane seal
thw window either came off the window slider or the slider bracket, this can be determined by removing the door panel. this could also be cable driven and the cable has disconnected or broke, can also be determined by removing door panel.
The two options for the leak will be the antenna seal to the roof or the windshield just forward of the information center.
Does it leak only when your driving or will it leak when the vehicle is setting in the driveway?
If it is leaking when setting in the driveway, I would suspect the antenna seal.
If it leaks while driving, check the windshield seal.
You can use a garden hose to isolate the leak.
Good luck, let me know.
remove the bolts/screws that hold it in and work it towards the rear of the ruck it hould come out fairly easy...be sure to remove screw on exterior right under the windshild or you will break the plastic that is right under the windshield and possibly the windshield( i cracked mine)
