How take out quarter glass ?

Thinking about taking out quarter glass if I decide too thinner off or wet sand off spray can paint so I can get to the factory paint that's been stupidly covered up for no good reason .
Just so I don't mess up any trim on the glass.
Is this hard ? Tools needed

Pretty easy, you need to remove the interior sail panels and remove the nuts holding the glass assembly to the body, then push it out - ideally with your foot with a helper to catch it from outside the car.

So they are poly urethane sealed as well as nuts and bolts ...what causes the need for extra foot pressure ?

It's butyl tape, DO NOT use polyurethane when you reseal them. They need a push for it to give way, easiest to do it by foot in my experience
