Thank u sir for loading this video, worked like a charm! Took some time getting that old glue off but good amount of Alcohol and scratching will do the trick. I was relieved to not have any trips to the dealer. I seen other videos using rubber and or silicone, this was the best video for the job. Definitely appreciate your time
I love these informative vids by Precision Replacement Parts. Good information without a lot of fluff.
Thanks great video
I have a 2014 1500 and it has a leak coming from the top of the rear window I'm hoping that this is my issue.
After numerous videos, finally found the tools needed for making the grove. Thx for the demonstration TOH!!! We need some new vids from this channel. I need my TOH fix!!!
And 2012...
Great to see that ShepherdSurvives has new instructions to save me.
did you ever get the screws back in the door sill plate correctly?
Squarebody vent windows are about as much fun. I'll check NPD for weatherstrip for it.

Chris Mason, I am having a similar issue with my driver side lock. In addition, the key nor the fob won t unlock it now. The power switch will though. Were you able to figure your issue out?
Why is this suddenly in my suggested videos?
I’m a woman, I can do it by myself, thanks
Good tip!
what do you do at the corners?
Thanks for taking time to do this video. As soon as it stops raining, will do this.
i got a 2011 prius but i assume its a very similar process. thanks for the vid and the name of what the stuff is called.
Same issue 2014 1500 Sport. Dealer's leak guy won't be in for another week, contemplating my own fix due to impatience.
hi there, Ive watched many videos on this installation and they are all wrong!, When you get to the front part where the motor is, do not remove both of the front bracket bolts. remove the top one only and slide the weatherstrip down making sure it sits IN FRONT OF THE Glass, then raise the window up all the way to seat the glass inn the upper channel. BE CAREFUL! it may take a few tries to seat properly. Once the glass is up and out of the way, you can put your hand inside from the large hole in use a paint stick to push it in the track. Alternate the top bolt with the bottom one removing only one at a time because you need support to push against. don't rush, it will eventually go in!!! John Zito
