Thinking of harassing local dealer tomorrow about 01281-00251 screw grommets for my side marker lights.

Got notified about a new 1995 at one of the local pick-n-pull's, went over early today hoping it had a 3-piece slider. Sure enough, $30, good condition too!

What's involved in taking one of these out?

I have a decommissioned Diahatsu mini deck van fire truck tho. 2001 with 2,500 miles with a/c, heat.

Nice ...

First one I pulled out, I managed to get it out in about 5 minutes by gently persuading the rubber out initially with a screwdriver, then working it out inch by inch with my fingers alone.
The second one got revenge for the first one - took me and someone else in the yard about 20 minutes and a LOT of struggling to get it out.
VOTS, how do the seals look that seal the slider portion? Mine have shrunk and have introduced a leak into the truck.

Those restored Crew Cabs are really nice. Just stunning. Gives me hope these classics (Crew cabs AND D21's) will be around for decades to come.

If anyone knows where those aluminum 'hockey pucks' should be installed to get a modest 1" raise...I would like to know where they go. That's going to be the extent of my 'raising the truck' project. It's only two wheel drive anyway.

Like Midnight ^^ pointed out, a couple of flat screwdrivers and 5 - 10 minutes of time in most cases. Start at any of the four corners on the inside, lift the rubber-seal up and over the cab sheet metal, put a screw driver between the two, move a few inches away and repeat until it falls away from the frame. The first time I did this I was floored at how easy it was. I think Nissan started using adhesive to hold them in with the second generation Frontiers.

Putting them back in is just as easy using 1/4" nylon rope.

The seal looks great and the glass slides back and forth smoothly, I expect it to get even better once I disassemble it and then clean/recondition the rubber parts. These window assemblies come apart almost as easy as they come out of the truck.

I won't know for sure until I get it installed in the truck and I wash it or it rains, like today. It rarely rains here but it's supposed to rain all day, we even have a flood advisory for the metro area. No working on the truck today
