for this kiddies you will need a few tools:-

8mm socket with extension (for trim removal)
T50 torx drive (for seat belt removal)
phillips screwdriver(more trim removal)
2 flat blade screwdrivers(to pry things)
pop rivet gun

also a few consumables:-

rivets
8mm bolts
washers to fit bolts
tyre dressing(optional)
nice day
patience

so start by removing your rear trims, the parcel shelf rest, and the C pillar one.

the parcel shelf rest is pretty self explanatory, just undo the 3, 8mm bolts, and leave it loose so you can remove the C pillar trim

for the C pillar
you will need to pop the cap off the seatbelt pivots and undo them with your T50(they should be fooking tight) and theres 2 phillips screws, one is hidden under where the spear mounts in the parcel shelf rest.

then i removed the window, and gave it a clean underneath
Image

now for the B pillar, remove the seatbelt pivot and put a flat blade under the trim, this one is not screwed on, it has a snap fit clip at the top and bottom, i just gave it a yank and it popped off :lol:

this reveals the 2 holes for the window brackets(the other one is there, promise)
Image

now fit the frst window rubber, this was a bit of an arse, make sure you have the correct side, the textured part should be on the inside, i also gave it a clean with tyre dressing first
Image

now you can fit the pop out window, put the rear hinge part into the hole in the C pillar (you will need to remove a little black blanking plate first)

get your 8mm bolts(i got mine from halfords)
Image

i cut them down to about 12mm
Image

bolt the hinge in with a couple of washers, the holes are sort of oval to allow for a bit of adjustment.

nows the fun bit, get your pop rivet gun and rivet the brackets at the front of the window into the little holes in the B pillar(this is a little fiddly)

and adjust it up so its nice and tight when you pull the hinge closed
Image

have a cuppa! your window is now fitted :chill:
Image

one last thing, ford have kindly put a little grove in the C pillar trim
Image

cut this out and refit your trim
Image

and your done, now for the other side :chill:

thanks mate :D this side took me about an hour, but i'm crap with rivets lol, they kept getting jammed in the gun and not biting up tight.

getting the frst seal to sit in the window frame tight and in the right place is a little tricky too.
