Trouble removing back window - assistance requested

Hey all,

I'm a new owner of a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport soft top and been working on becoming a pro and removing the sides and top. However I've run into a bit of a snag when it comes to the back window piece. I've read countless forum threads on this topic and watched a few youtube videos that make it seem so easy yet I still can't get it.

From what I've seen and read, it should zip from passenger side to driver side and easily be removed from there. Part of the problem I've noticed is my back window has two zippers threaded in opposite directions from each other. Is this normal? Based on this, it seems like it's just impossible for me to remove as while one zipper undoes the track, the other one just closes it up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The zippers should face opposite (butt to butt). The key is to remember the zipper heads should stay on the window. Easiest way I found was to just take the driver’s side zipper and pull it down until it will not go any further, then unzip the passenger side zipper and when it touches the driver’s side zipper put your finger on top of the zipper and push. Mine pops off with no problems this way. It helps to have the tailgate bar undone, so you can remove any tension.

Yea, from the videos it shows it butt to butt as well. Weird thing is my zippers seem to be going head to head. Is this a possibility? I feel as if someone re-threaded the zippers backwards.
