Take out the inner lining then cut round the bonding with a razor knife.

corsa's are unnervingly easy to break into. just make sure you support the window from the outside.

removing the rear side windows is a nightmare, the stickerflex used to bond them in is VERY tight, took me 2 hours to do it properly

I had my corsa broken into while i watched, i asked him to do it, had locked keys in car well the alarm locks itself and my key happened to be inthere, scary took him 5 seconds max.
Locked me key in 4 times now and just break in every time takes me a few minutes though need practice

How do you remove and replace the bonding material? Is this difficult to do?

the window is being removed on a friends corsa to repair the rear quarter panel.. no criminal activities involved!!!

to remove the window you need to cut it out, either with a knife or with wire, then with the glass out you cut off all remaining bond bead with a razor blade, then clean and de-grease, the prime with the primer supplied with glass bonding kits, the bond back in, if ya lucky you might be able to save the rubber.
