Removing Screws From K5 Vent Window Frame

Anyone have any suggestions for getting the screws out of the aluminum frames without destroying the rubber seal? One already broke off. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Removing Screws From K5 Vent Window Frame

Don't know if it would help, but I did a write-up on vent window seal replacement.

Re: Removing Screws From K5 Vent Window Frame

It's been a few years since I rebuilt mine, but I don't remember any screws under the seal. A pic would help if you can figure out how to post it.

I used your thread to guide me through rebuilding mine.

OK, two screws on top and two screws on bottom (under rubber gasket).

Re: Removing Screws From K5 Vent Window Frame

You could in fact, take out the entire side window. It's not that hard really with some windex. I actually locked my keys into the truck and after staring at it a long time, actually pulled the side glass out of the topper to get into the truck.

Needless to say, my daughter was very impressed! She was the one that locked the keys in the truck when we were shopping at a camera store....

Jeff, Thanks for posting the pictures. Those are the ones I'm having trouble with. I think I'll take your advice and remove the windows. That way I can get some serious heat on the screws. I didn't think about taking them out. Great idea as I'm replacing the top anyway and wanted to swap windows. Thanks again! Gary
