I need to remove the rear side window on a 96 metro. Anybody do this.

I have done this on the 89 to 94 and that is pretty straight forward but not on a 96 or newer.

Don't want to mess up the trim or break the window of course.

Wow this is an old thread. (I have searched the how to's and googled removal for geo metros on the forum and only found this old thread)

On the 95 up hatchback, the rear side glass has to be removed with piano wire. It is glued to the body.

Thanks Freego! Yep, I was able to take the trim on the side window out with much persuasion and carefulness... $6 at PnP. After starting to get the trim out I could see that it was glued in. Oh man yeah piano wire effort is not a lot of fun, but I can do it if someone does not get them first or break them.

A flexible putty knife works wonders for the rear side glass

Putty knife or butter knife heated up works good for thick spots in the urethane or corners of the window.
