Hello,

My GTV has a small patch of paint bubbling up very near the upper edge of the rear window.

I might deal with it locally or go for a full respray but either way I need to know how easy is it to remove and re-fit the rear window, if possible to re-fit the same one at all.

Thanks

Have replacement seal and trims handy in case. See Totally Alfa site for PDF of workshop manual.

All the fixed glass is bonded in.
It is really a job for some one experienced to cut them out and bond the glass back in. The rear window and the side windows are glass encapsulated parts which are easy to damage when cut out. When I had my car resprayed I had the rear window replaced so it was taken out. The side windows were left in place.
This was done by a professional firm, although they had had to have two goes to get the windscreen fitted correctly.

Thank you both.

I have read the workshop manual. It does seem like a complex operation, headlining and a lot of interior trim to be removed before the bonding can be cut and I guess it's very easy to damage the rubber seals.

I think I will try to address the bubbling without removing the glass first.

Cheers
