[quote quote=14921]Eric, how did you get the glass out without cutting the gasket? Steel Rubber has the gaskets but I don’t know how good they are. Does the window trim come out with the window and gasket? Or did you remove the trim first? I would guess Ebay is the best source for the clips but you have to know what other GM car would use them to help widen the search.[/quote]

The trim has to come off first. I tried to get the trim off without hurting the clips but most of my clips had just enough rust on them to make the brake. I did bend a couple good ones though.
For the glass. They are bonded into the frame even though they are a rubber gasket. I just got under the gasket with a 90 degree pick and pulled it though the gooey sealer they used. After that and with the interior trim off around the back glass I just had to push it out while running my pick around the rubber on the inside. It come right out. I already have a new gasket but I am going to reuse the original.
