We will assume that you have the glass for replacement. Fish a very small screwdriver or a stiff wire in the rubber gasket down into the bottom of the glass and back up inside. Use the hole to fish a strong piece of fishing line through the hole created by the wire. Now push or pull the old glass out while opening the gasket (spreading it apart) with the fish line. Once out, grease the gasket with vaseline, wheel bearing grease or silicone grease and insert the new glass, spreading the gasket as before. This will work, it may take some help on the other side of the glass. Try not to screw up the gasket, if you cut it, replace it while the glass is out. RTV will ensure a watertight seal.

1995 Buick Riviera, brake lights won't come on except for the one in back window


I am thinking that the brake lamps in the rear taillamps went through the turn signal/hazzard switch. Play with your hazzard switch and see if they start working. If not, check the brake lamp switch with a test light. I believe the high mount stoplamp had a seperate wire than the taillamps for brake lights.
