'96 Windstar rear window problem.

The rubber grommet/trim on the rear door window won't stay in place. Auto glass folks say glass must be removed from the door to properly re-install the grommet. Should I expect any problems if I just get rid of the grommet?
It's already loose in places and doesn't leak. TIA Matt
