I'm installing new dew wipes on an '88GT with power locks/mirror.

The inside panel is off, along with most of the screws holding the dew wipe. But with the window up all the way, I still cannot get to those screws that are covered by glass even with a home made zig-zag screwdriver that reaches the screws. I needed a lot of straight-on force plus twist to break the others loose.

I researched the forum, and found someone that suggested undoing the two "L-shaped brackets" so the glass could be raised. Perfect.

But - what brackets?

If you've loosened the felt pads on the inside, with the window up, you can tip the window inward, giving a little more room. Get some wooden door jamb and window shims at your local home building supply store like Home Depot or Lowes. You can use them to protect your window and to help exert force against the tool, by pushing down between the tool and window. Using a box knife to remove the rubber of the old dew wipe prior to removal can help with clearance, too.

^^This^^

Exactly what I did.

After you get them out, I would recommend not putting screws back in those hole, or using hex-heads screws if you must.
