Hello. No problem. Use a blow dryer to heat them up and a putty knife to lift them from the glass. Be careful as they will be hot. Joe

The only safe way to remove them are to remove the window first

I have seen guys try many different methods to no avail...either they crack the window or the window leaks after service


sorry

Replacement clips are available through specialty auto parts stores...there are many tricks or solvents that will loosen the glue on the broken clip...if you damage the glass, you can find a popular window replacement, inspect the clip too, at your nearby salvage yard or online...Hope this helps.

    Sounds like you have a window regulator problem. Most door panels are held on by screws and plastic pop clips. I am not sure what type of vehicle you have. Once the door panel is off you can support the glass in the up position and replace the regulator assembly. Most are bolted in and some are rivioted which means you will have to drill out the old riviots and install new ones that need a special riviot gun

    Driver's door glass pulls out of regulator clips,glued them with windshield sealent.Still pulled out.1998 ford explorer/Power windows. What could be wrong,window track not bent..have you heard of this...


    am not familiar with that model but if the glass sits in a track (Steel with rubber lined) then the glass has to be removed and the track "beaten" onto the galss, Try at your peril as it is easy to shatter the glass if not done properly. You must use a rubber hammer.

    Most window glass units are bolted to the rail but you do not mention this.
