has anyone removed front and rear glass/window seal on a coupe?

hi folks.

as the title suggests i am needing to get the front and rear glass out, but having a little difficulty. normally on other cars the seal comes off farely easily but this is what im struggling with, any tips or hints on how to go about it apart from getting a spechilist in would be great.

Dont know about rear window but for the front you can remove the outer seal easily.
Remove the rubber flap on the door, remove the door card and just pry off the outer seal. Start at the outer edge of the door.
It is just pressure fitted clips.

Suggestion!!

Hey Robaidh !!
I really appreciate your work to remove the glass, but i suggest you should call the repairer!! I'm saying this just because i have seen lots of dangerous accidents
So even if you are trying to do so be careful !!
