Side window removal.

I want to swap the tinted windows in my 318is into my 325i. Ive got the door panel off and im not sure what to do from there.

Anyone got any tips?

keep in mind the power windows dont move in the red car, so i will have to jump them with a battery if they need to be lowered.

Yes, just jump them, get it to lower so you take the bolts off (that hold it to the regulator), then just slide the window up and out (on an angle)...

Two screws on the side closest to the door lock. Hold window bottom. Once loose slide back of track and slide up and out. Don't forget to remove the window strip first.
