Anyone have a step by step plan for remove/replace the driver’s rear corner window? It looks like the upper chrome trim needs to come off for sure first thing... any help would be appreciated.

Here's some photos of the rear quarter window: Sentry Mode not working during break ins / Removing rear seat latch

The chrome trim is part of the window assembly. It's glued on. I'll look into the service manual and see if I can extract instrucitons on their replacement.
