Removing Rear Quarter Window On R32


Recommended Posts

Not as such, but i've heard that its pretty tricky to do without breaking it.

I'm not sure how accurate this is though, it might have just been the panelbeater spinning sh*t so he could charge more

But we used a window remover thing, kinda like a cross between an electric knife and spatula.....cuts through the black gooey stuff and out she comes.

Thanks for the reply Duncan, how did you get the surround of the window off?

hmm don't really remember must have been fairly straightforward. Inside trim is held in with clips, so you yank them out breaking them all and then look around local car part shops hoping to find new ones to match so you can put it back in.

I assume there is a proper way to do it though :ninja:

yes it is. the rubber seal and the glass is one piece. my advice is dont remove them unless you have no other choice. When I resprayed my car I insisted they remove them to ensure good finish, and no build up. BUT they told me I was being pedantic and that if masked properly, and painted properly it wouldn't be a problem. I wish I listened. mine came out, and went back in but the seals dont like quite the same as they did before :ninja:

The quarter glass and seal is one piece, but between the glass and the metal of the car body is a sikaflex bead seal.

Panelbeater broke my right side qtr as well, it had to come out to get at the cancer. The replacement looks good, whilst the original on the left has a banged up outer seal.

There's also a 10mm nut on the inside rear. Hard to believe but true. The stud for the nut is bonded to the glass. I removed mine when we painted the car with the tried and proven piano wire method. Careful not to damage it at all, as the seals don't come away from the glass - one piece.

    • Atessa will work the same as it’s operated by a different ECU. If you want to use one so it can be RWD only I’m not sure that will work and if it is what you want then using a GTST or GTT gearbox would be a cheaper and easier tho v to use. You can just use the AWD gearbox and leave out the shaft that goes from the transfer case to the front diff for full time RWD. Changing the ecu and wiring just so you can use a nistune? There are better options out there that are plug and play to your existing harness connector and they should all work if you are running a manual instead of an auto. 
    • @GTSBoy just to make sure everyone is on the same page: OP is doing the manual conversion on their S1 Stagea
    • hey guys i have a 1996 r33 gts-4 and i assume the last owner has been playing with the horn and it’s not working i’m not too sure why the horn pad feels almost springy and feels like it doesn’t sit right is there anything else i would need to tighten apart from the two bolts on the side and or plug in? here’s a video of what it looks like 67842678749__9E03EA58-0C80-4CDB-83EE-5BE6F2D07AC4.MOV
    • The racelogic is one of those things (along with an Accusump) which blows my mind how they don't have wider adoption. They are simple and have massive, massive, massive effects and if you're even remotely interested in driving a car hard, you'll smack your head for not doing sooner. Disappearing in need now as cars get newer and TC technology in OEM's is obviously very competent, but you'll look back at all the years of high powered RWD cars and be like "wtf why only now"
