To remove door Glass: (this processes can also be used as a guide to take your door panel apart, or getting another window from the junkyard or whatever)
Take down the weather stripping around the top and sides of the window.
Roll your window up or down until it is about 1/2 way down.
Take loose your door panel. To do this, first remove the two screws underneath the grab handle on your door and pull the grab handle strait out. Simply disconnect the plugs on the underside of the switches and toss aside the grab handle for later.
There should be one more screw to take out, on the bottom part of the door opposite side of the hinge (the side that opens)
Once the screws are removed, lift up on the door panel. and it should slide up, pending anything still connected i forgot, toss the door panel aside.
You'll need to remove the plastic or jute backing inside the door panel.
Once that's done, you'll see in the spaces the door panel, the bottom of your window should be in there. You'll need to drill our the rivet's (there should be two) be careful to not break the bottom part of the window. I find the best way to do this is to put your hand behind the glass and put pressure against it as your drilling from the other side.
To remove the glass, grab the backside of the glass and pull it up. then tilt the front down. then take the whole glass strait out.
Once you've removed the glass, tint your window using Pedro's process above.
Reverse procedure to put the window back in. You don't HAVE to use rivets again, i've seen them bolted. but its better to use another rivet to hold the window in place.
