If you feel any resistance when trying to take it off, stop and double check that you removed all screws holding it on. Once the door panel is off, you'll need to remove the door speaker by unbolting it and then unclipping it from the wire harness (see Figure 4). You'll also want to remove the factory water shield plastic that runs along the door panel and the trim that runs along the top of the window (see Figures 5 and 6).

If your old window is shattered inside the door, you'll have to remove all the big pieces by hand. Wear very thick gloves when doing this and dispose of it properly. Once all the big pieces are out of the way you'll need to use your shop vac to vacuum up all the small pieces. If the shop vac can't fit into certain areas, a ball of packing tape is pretty good at picking up pieces as well. If your window isn't shattered you'll want to put the window up and then run packing tape over the door frame onto the glass on both sides to keep it up.

Step 3 - Install new glass. Some glass will come with brackets, some won't. If you find the glass for relatively the same price with and without them, I suggest getting it with them, it will save you a decent chunk of time doing some trial and error. However if it doesn't have the brackets (as shown in Figure 8) you'll need to reuse the old ones. I suggest loosely attaching the brackets and test fitting before using silicon glue to completely secure them. From the outside of the truck, tilt the new glass into the door channel, and slowly slide it down. DO NOT force the glass or you may shatter it.
If it feels like it’s stuck, pull it back up and slightly readjust the angle. Have your helper on the inside of the door to help guide it into the regulator channel. Tighten the two bolts you removed in Figures 2 and 3 in Step 2 to secure the window into place. If the glass is tight in the channel, you can use silicone spray to help it slide more freely. Using the window controls, test the movement of the window now before re- installing everything else. Step 4 - Finish installation.
This step is pretty straightforward. You'll just need to do the reverse of Step 1 and re- install the door panel.
