The following is how to refit the side windows, but apply's to the Alpine Windows as well. I always find it best to ask someone that does windows for a living to refit, but then again I always tend to break glass.

Thoroughly clean the opening to be glazed.

Clean the glass and fit the mounting rubber,
ensuring that the glass sits correctly in the

Fit a draw cord around the exterior of the
mounting rubber.

To aid assembly, coat the flange in the bodyside
with liquid soap.

Position the assembled glass and rubber
mounting to the opening in the body, with the
tails of the draw cord fed into the interior of the

With assistance from a second operator, pushing
the glass and mounting rubber into the opening,

When working with GEMS vehicles. Never try to locate a misfire by pulling plug leads off - pull the injector connector instead. Otherwise you can blow up the ECU.
