How to install a back glass in a 05 dodge magnum wagon. The back lid glass

If you would please look at the glass and the metal door in which it attaches, I believe you will see there is a black "tar" that holds it in place.
First, disconnect the electric rear window defroster wire, if you have one.
You would, using a very thin steel wire, separate the glass from the "tar".
Then, clean the tar out of the channel, and prepare the rear door for new tar and the new glass.
It sticks on.

How do i attach tio window the Rear view mirror ?

The mirror attaches to the inside of the windshield using a small metal "button" that is glued to the glass. The mirror assembly slides onto the button, and is secured with a set screw.

If the metal button comes off of the glass, you will need to re-attach it. Autoparts stores sell glue kits specifically made for this purpose. Make sure the glass and button are completely clean before starting (I like to wipe them both with a little rubbing alcohol to make sure there is no grease or oil on them as well), and follow the directions on the glue kit's package.

If the metal button is missing, you may be able to find one at the same auto parts store where you find the glue. If not, check with any GM dealership's parts counter.

If there are also other issues with the windshield glass, you can get the entire windshield replaced by a glass company. The new windshield will come with the button already installed. Your auto insurance may cover the cost of the replacement (check with them first).

The little spade lug that is attached to the rear window glass on the rear Pass. side is missing. The wire is there to attach to that lug. Can you attach a new lug to the glass somehow?

You can fashion a lug, but it needs to be tight in the connector, and flat and clean where it attaches to the window. Permatex makes a glue with copper in it just for this, any auto parts store should have it. I woul dattach the connector to the wire and then glue it, you want to have it perfectly clean, like with scothbrite where it attaches.

How get replacement rear vent window into place? its a 1995 maxima passenger side rear vent window.have picked up a new one from salvage and fear if i force it, it may shatter.

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

Left rear window stuck down. Hear motor working but doesn't lift the window.

For a Temp fix take it to a local glass tint shop and ask them to wire it up for you so people cant steal it. But the cable broke or the metal clamp that attaches to the bottom of the glass came off (if thats the case get some plumers goup or any other glue that stays flexible when it drys and try glueing it back to the bottom of the glass) I have a 97 Lincoln Presidental TC that happen to both my rear windows and I was able to glue the assimbaly back together for a quick fix, good luck
