Question about 1995 Mercury Sable
Aut glass technicians use a 110 volt heated blade to remove the glass. Other wise its nearly impossible to get out
Posted on Jul 03, 2010
Just took a back window out of a 91 Sable at Pick-n-Pull yesterday. It was a bugger to do but we got it out without breaking the window. Forget about saving the seals. You have to cut them all. The car I am working on has a three-part rear window. A center part and separate curved pieces on each end. The piece I took out was the center.
At the top, remove the trip strip with the chrome trim. Cut it lose and chuck it. Then, take a thin bladed but sturdy knife, aim it down and toward the front of the car and cut using several passes, through the remaining seal all the was across. You won\'t be able to get the entire corner until you have the sides cut lose. Then you have to have someone push out at the corner while you use your knife to cut the corners lose. You can make progress a little at a time until you get through.
Be patient and don\'t push hard out hard on the window until it moves freely. After working for an hour or more to get it lose you don\'t want to break it.
To do the sides of the center window, lift the outside edge of the black trim strip, insert your knife and carefully cut through the trim from top to bottom. When you have to outside part off you have to get the rest out. Take your knife in a straight in position up against the glass, push in and cut the rubber from top to bottom. Remove the strip you cut off. Then, take your knife and angle it in under the glass and cut making several passes until you have cut through the seal. Do the same on the other side.
Along the bottom, open the trunk lid, cut under the seal towards the interior of the car as deep as you can get. Cut it all the way across. Shut the trunk lid and cut off the part of seal that overlaps the glass. Then, cut down along the edge of the glass as deep as you can go. Remove the rest of the seal.
At this point you should have the glass lose along the sides and at the top. If you didn\'t before, you need to have someone push out the top corners, carefully, so you can cut the adhesive lose. When the top and sides are free and you can easily push the top out you are ready to cut the bottom lose from the inside.
Have someone hold the top out a few inches so you can cut along the inside bottom until you have cut through far enough to loosen up the window and you can remove it.
Patience and perseverance are needed and it will take you a couple of hours to get it done. Hopefully, it won\'t be sunny and hotter than blazes when you do it. It was when we got ours and it was not a fun experience.
