No, it can be done with the window in the car and the top down. Just be sure to cover areas with plastic drop cloth as the dremel tends to let fragments fly around

FYI
This past weekend i installed the window seal part# 51368209422. It was pretty easy to my surprise. I used a heat gun to heat the orginal window seal. Then i took a pair of pliers and started pulling the old seal from the top. The old seal came off fairly easy. I did not remove the window itself. Once the old seal was removed I cleaned the rest of the epoxy off. I then purchased epoxy from autozone and installed the new seal. This process took about an hour to complete.

Sorry for bringing back an old thread. I bought a used window on Ebay and trying to decide whether replacing the whole window is easier or prying off the old seal. any suggestions? (I tried and couldn't figure out how to remove the rear side window...)
