If you are refferring to the "wing" on the door you have to remove the door glass to get the entire assembly out. You could try to "cut" the adhesive from the glass and remove it that way. Never done it like that but it should work.

This would be an interesting and fun project. Has anyone done this before? I've known a lot of people with cracked vent windows that would like to have them replaced.

If you can do this, do a before and after photo please. Maybe a quick step-by-step.

I've done it twice on a 69and 70 c10. Rolling the main window down will give just enough room. Some key screws come out and slowly and patiently remove the vent assemb. email me If you don't get a newer model info for you ride. The info is out there.

Next question: Did you do this in a heated garage or outside? You're in Nova Scotia, I see. I always found a way to put off jobs until I could find a heated garage or until it got warmer. :great:
