Dirt in windows?

I made a mistake after a good day of mud and rolled my windows down. So now I hear :!CRUNCH!: everytime I roll up my windows. How do I get it out? I've tried running paper-towels up in there but it didn't work. Any suggestions are appreciated.

the black rubber peices that surround the window easly pull off and you can wash them from there.

You just pull them out with your hand? No screws, annoying push-plastic-fastners, nothing like that? I guess you'd just roll the window down and rip it out if so, right?

Well, I didn't think you could do it so easily either and it's not as easy. The back part of the window was fine. You just have to pull firmly to get it loose, but the part by the side mirrors have metal in the rubber that helps it hold. I tried pulling, prying, and bending and nothing worked. I ended up just letting it hang there and cleaned the parts that I could. I also had to take my door panel off to get the rear part back in it's place. Let me know if I missed something small that made this difficult.

I just grab the pressure washer and blast the black peices next to the window. Seems to work for me
