The rear window, or backlight, had to be removed
in order to remove the headliner, the only interior part that hadn't been removed yet. Originally I wasn't going to cut the
seal knowing that the new replacement seals had a reputation for being too large. I was just hoping my seal was still in good
I ended up cutting the seal after learning that a good fit seal was in fact available.
Another point made to me is that a replacement backlight, if I broke it, would cost thousands to replace and this part is
not being reproduced. Well I certainly didn't destroy anything by cutting my seal as evidenced in these pictures.
