Question about 2004 Dodge Caravan
I am going to a junk yard to get a front drive side window for my 2000 dodge grand caravan and am wondering how to get the glass out. My van window was broken and is already out but when I took off the door panel I am not sure how I would remove the glass if I had to.
After u remove the bolts that hold it to the window regulator tip the window towards the front of the door and the top rear corner of the window should pop out and then u just lift hte window out,hope this helps
