I'll be installing a rear hatch window with deluxe trim this afternoon.
Does the trim go in the rubber before or after the glass?

I find it impossible to get the trim on the rubber without the glass in it.

How ever you can get it in there before you install the window.
It helps if you throw the seal in the dryer on low heat to soften it up.

I left it in the sun and that helped.
