Rear cabin glass

I have a line of small bubbles from top to bottom of my f430 rear cabin glass. It drives me crazy every time i look in the rear view mirror. I know how to remove the trim but im not sure how the window comes out. Does anyone know how to remove the rear cabin glass/window. Lorenzo . ,,,Thanks

I have it figured out. So that the forum has some info, once you remove the interior trim panels you can clearly see where the rear window is glued to the body the same way the front windshield would be glued on. Its just a matter of cutting away the glue with a razor knife. Once its loose it comes out thru the engine bay. Its rare to replace these. I found a nice used one for $300

Congrats on the replacement, both the process and the inexpensive part!

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

This is a work in progress. I started the project early to take my time to learn how to dissassemble the trim and remove the wndow before the window even comes. Its scheduled for wensday delivery. The first part to remove was the seat belt trim. Theres a plastic housing that covers the bolt. J ust push up on that housing to xpose the bolt then you can remove the bolt shwon in the pic. The other two pics is what it looks like with all the trim removed. This is where i have to stop because i dont wanna scrape the glue away and remove the window untill i inspet the window thats coming.
