Anyone know if that rubber weatherstrip around the rear quarter windows just snaps on like on the doors, or if it is part of the window? I have some rust under it I need to get off, but don't want to have to take the interior apart and pull the window if I don't have too.

BTW, I asked I think as a continuation to someone else's post a while back, but didn't get a very good answer. Anybody know where to get OE style weatherstripping for our cars? Ford is crazy pricey on the stuff they still have, and JC Whitney doesn't have any for the Thunderbird (unless it is a JEEP Thunderbird !?!?!?!?!?!? that's what they told me).

Unfortunately, the rear quarter glass rubber is not replaceable without replacing the entire window. If I am not mistaken, they are obsolete from Ford. The last that I saw (when they were available) they were going for ~$500 new! Each!

Ok. Glad you said that before I went yanking on it then. Guess I have to take the window out. Actually, that rubber is fine, i just need to get behind it. I'm looking more for the door and trunk weatherstripping. It is shot.

Which quarter window are you looking to replace? I've got a good left side window sitting in my shed doing nothing.

So, If these quarter windows is obsolete from Ford what does one do in the event of a broken window?? any aftermarket suppliers for these?? I know that aftermarkets are available for fox body Mustangs 1987-93 Hatchbacks-they have the same type of window/problem.

You don't want to know what a new quarter window costs. The last time I had a glass shop look it up it was so high that the owner of the shop, rather than try to sell it to me, recommended that I find a used one. The new one was between 5-800. (No, I'm not kidding)

Fortunately, they are rarely broken in accidents so they are easy to get at salvage yards.
