    It's not easy as the front and rear screens are bonded in - it's a job best left to the professionals

    Assuming you have a 3 door MK4.

    The back 1/4 light windows are "just" bolted in.
    You'll need to remove the inner trim all around the window. Just pulls off, then you'll see 6 (ish) mylon nuts, undo and remove the glass.
    When refitting put a bead of silicone around the seal to make a tight seal.
    The front windows are a bit more fiddley.

    Treat yourself to a Haynes manual, well worth the money to help you through thing like this.
