Does anyone know the trick for getting the glass back in the door of a bug? We have a 65 and a 63 that we took the glass out of for restoration. They came out pretty easy and we took several pictures and good notes, but we just can't get them back in. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

Never done it on a 65 and up door, but done plenty on 64 and earlier doors. No real tricks to it, it's just a super tight fit. Make sure you have the bolts for the divider bar removed, and I also like to remove the bolt that secures the bottom of the rear window channel in place. I then place the glass in the bottom of the door. Grab the divider bar and gently (but firmly) pry it towards the front of the car. Try to get the top of the glass to go in the front and rear channels. Once the top of the glass is in, the glass will probably be and a funny angle and not really in line with the channels. You may think it won't work, but slowly just start forcing it upwards, and it will start lining up as the glass goes up. Kinda hard to explain, so I hope I made some sense!

Thanks! I does make sense. I am at the point that the glass looks off center and like it will break if I push harder. Looks like i just need to keep going and it will line up.

Thanks,
