Your local glass shop can handle this for you quickly and probably not too expensive. but if you want to try it yourself... get to sears or any tool shop and buy a "hook tool" also known as a cotter pin puller. have a helper hold the glass in the opening while you open the tailgate in its open position. please have your safety glasses on!! sprey glass cleaner around the opening, use the new tool you bought to pull the rubber flap over the metal fin, go slowly and keep the rubber sill wet as you go along. when you get all the way around and the rubber is all seated, put the hatch down half way and have you or your helper "slap" the glass from the outside all around the glass should go back to its fully seated position. good luck.

Replace solid rear quater window


if it is the 'sealed ' type you will have to go to a car screen shop as you won't have the sealant/adheisive , if its the rubber seal type fit the rubber seal around the new window , in the groove on the rubber seal put a lenght of string , sash cord is ideal , around the entire seal and have the ends of the string overlap at the bottom of the seal by as much as you can , not sure of the window size myself,around the edge of the seal smear sum washing detergent , this will act as a lubricant , place the window with the bottom edge of the seal and ends of string on the out side of the window frame but at a slight angle so that the edge and string are inside the frame and gently push the window in a downward direction while some one else gently pulls one end of the string so that the rubber lip comes over the frame edge , continue all round the window pressing the glass at the same place as the string is being pulled until you get back to the starting point , you may have to remove the interior trim/panel to get access to the window frame

Rear window with slider leaks


Depends on where it leaked at . If you have a slider than can be the seal on it , or if whole back window then you could have a bad seal or a rusty area beside the rubber seal that would need fixed . If neither then a seal is most likely your problem . Some people puts alot of vasaline on them to make them swell to see if it still leaks and others just do a small cut on clear caulking then lift the rubber up and trace around the window and clean up any that sqeezed out but my preferance is to remove the back window and look for rust and fix it right the first time .

If I push the the driver side window down It will not come back up without pushing it back by hand


Window might be misaligned or the rubber seal around the door window must bee tight. might have accidentaly spilled with oil or other chemicals that made the rubber expanded or a cause of wear and tear of parts.

The small storage compartment in the back of my 2007 2-door jeep wrangler Rubicon is wet, soaked with water. Where is it coming from?


If your Jeep has a soft top -

I have a 2007 Unlimited and has the same problem. My Jeep is a soft top and the water came from the rain and a poor seal of the back window. Part of the problem came from the displacement of the plastic "c" shaped "rear window bar holder" that clips on to the rear on either side of rear window. Ocasionally the clip pops out of place and breaks the seal between the rubber on the window and the rear sides of the Jeep.

Yes the glass does have a runner or rubber seal on it. If you have removed it from the frame and the frame is still strong enough to hold up for a while, then here is how you do it: place the rubber seal on the winow glass, have a piece of strong string (about 24 inches long), place the window on the frame for now (don't push it in yet, just park it on top of the frame, get in the trunk, get the string to pass between the frame and the rubber window seal, use the string to position the rubber seal while someone outside the car pushes firmly on the window (helping you pop it in, inch by inch). You have to work from one corner all the way around the frame until you get back to where you started from.It takes a while, it's frustrating and remember not to remove the string before you are completely done because you'll have to start over from scratch. Also, once done, for good measure, tape some painter's tape (low-level of stickiness) about a 1/4inch from the outside rubber window seal (all the way around) and fill the inside of the rubber seal with a thin layer of clear caulking (bathroom or exterior grade). then just smooth out the rubber seal while the caulking is still wet so as to remove any bumps or uneveness. Repeat once a year and you'll be sure that your Cabby won't leak water from the back window, and won't have a rusty back window frame that rots out eventually.
Hope that helps, Cheers!

I cannot get the rear/side window latch to close. any suggestions


Sienna is like Previa... If the rubber seal around the Rt or Left read window is hardened, closing it will feel like this and 'may' break.
Use ArmorAll and hit it a couple 3-4x to soften the rubber seal all the way around (both sides too, front and back) and make the seals supple and pliable again. Should close OK now ;-)
