I have an 81 Imperial and I need to take out the glass panel. I am going to replace it as it is cracked. The service manual lists a pretty simple procedure to remove the glass. My sunroof works so moving it back and forth is not a problem.

1) I can remove the track plates that allow me to lift up the front of the glass to remove the colored halo trim piece and the lip molding.
2) The SM says to remove the "lift pins" not sure what those are. The pictures in the SM do not point out the lift pins.
3) Unscrew the cable mechanism from the bracket on the glass panel to free the glass from the cable. I haven't done this yet because I am still figuring out the lift pin thing but it appears to be just two bolts.

Has anyone removed the glass and/or have a pic or can describe the lift pins? It doesn't appear to be too hard but I don't want to start removing stuff willy-nilly.

Thanks,

Craig
