    Plasma and i have just done spikeys..it goes like this...

    remove the inside boot trim..pop studs

    remove the side shelf support but watch the wires for the canbus that are behind.there are TORX fittings all over the place including behind the rear seat side bolsters.the white trim is held in with some feirce clips.

    This then reveals the fixings..the 1/4 window is held in with 9mm plastic nuts fitted to screws on the frame.

    mark's above description is how you are MEANT to remove the window.

    mark found the easiest/quickest way to remove Spikey's rear quarter window was a large metallic device such as a crowbar and yank that mother out!!!!

    the chrome trims on the rear quarter glass is actually bonded to it, so you can't separate unfortunately

    mick,

    the front and rear trims just prise up off a flange on the top of the doorskin..they take about 20 seconds each to remove..start from the edge with the vinyl trim on and just lift up..
