Not on this car, but one like that fixed angled rear door window, have to remove the door panel, the window that goes up and down, then that chrome strip to slide that glass out.

Out of curiosity, why would you have to remove the sliding window? couldnt you just roll it down?

It depends, on some vehicles, removing that rear channel, that window may fall down., also a strange kind of glass, can hit it hard with a flat hand and just hurt your hand. With a sharp object like a phillips screwdriver, one tap would shatter into a thousand pieces.
