Trying to find the easy way to remove the vent window on the 65?
Any suggestions?

Unbolt the retaining and adjustment bolts and pull it out.

If you want the 1/4 window out as well, then after the frame is out there are two screws and a nut under a tension spring, remove the screws and nut and spring, then turn the window to allow you the get the 1/4 window glass out of the frame.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

The retaining bolts are they the ones below the vent window recessed in?

There are three - on that photo yes recessed in.
The first two are far left toward the top. The third is below the door open mechanism holding the bottom of the channel. Try to remember how ones for adjustment are set up so it is easier to get it right when you re-install.

The 2 bolts circled in red hold the top in. One on the left is short & goes into the diecast. The one to the right is a long one & goes through the 1/4 vent frame to a nut in the door skin.

The two nuts circled in green come out & then there is an allen screw behind it. They are for adjustment. Take not of where they are (take a pic) so you can get them close on reassembly. They can be a pain to get out, so shoot some WD40 on them & let soak overnight.

I missed a bolt. Oh well, it should have been obvious when you got to it.
Thanks Kerry.
