Also, the rear window on the E36 has a zipper. I haven't replaced my window
yet, but I did find the zipper. My suggestion is to get the new window in
the mail and look at the zipper to get an idea of where the Zipper Pull is
and how it works. I'm not sure how it works, because the Zipper Pull seems
to be missing from my window. Maybe the Pull comes off when the window is
installed, I don't know. There is no need to take the window out except for
replacement, so it makes sense that the Pull might come off when the window
is installed completely.
By all appearances, I see no reason why one can't replace the rear window at
home. It looks like it might take two people, but there is no sewing or
removal of the roof, or anything along those lines.
