    Pretty sure they are bonded in.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Very carefully!!

    I thought they were bolted from the inside. Remove the trim and if there's a ring of nuts on studs around the outside, bobs your uncle!!

    If it is the same as the b coupe there are a few clips/ bolts to undo on the inside of the panel,
    But after that i.m pretty sure they are bonded, like a front windsreen, as mentioned

    I,m pretty sure they have to use a wire like saw around the sealant, but only guessing realy, because i,ve only seen it done on a widscreen then the broke it lol

    if u take the trim off on the inside and there is a load off white blocks round the window it just bolted in and not sealled. i had one replaced on my astra 1.8 sxi and watched how it was done as i thought there where bounded in

    As roadrage said, youll need to remove all the surrounding trim panels then they have small plastic nuts holding them in, they arent bonded at all.
