How to remove windows with just a rubber inside gasket

Okay, I'm you-tubed out and haven't been able to find anything using the search function on here either.

All the windows in my 02 Dolphin are apparently just held in by the seal tape, but every removal and installation help I can find references screws and an interior metal trim ring.

On mine, the only thing on the inside is a black rubber gasket. No screws, no clips, and no retainers that I can see. I even removed one window to get measurements for a replacement, and since I didn't plan to reuse that window, I cut away the black rubber to investigate the mounting. Still nothing but the seal tape around the outside edge.

Anyone else have experience with removing and reinstalling these type windows? I need to pull another out (much bigger window, but with same black rubber interior piece) to try and repair some window fogging, but don't want to pull it out until I no kidding know what I'm doing.

Thanks for any insight or advice, Dave

Sounds like someone has already removed inside retaining ring other wise there is no reasons for the rubber gasket. Just my guess

I don't know if this will work on the set up you have. Several years ago I had a Chevy Silverado pickup. I purchased a rear sliding window to replace the stock solid glass. The directions that came with the new window showed to spray the black rubber gasket with WD-40. After spraying it was to sit for 5-10 minutes. The rubber gasket just about fell out of the window. After replacing the window, washed the gasket off with soap and water and it never had a problem.
