I did a search before posting, but maybe i am the only idiot that can't figure out how to remove the rear soft window. I want to replace all my stock plastics with tinted ones, and the sides came out easy. Can't figure out how to remove the rear window.
Unzip it all the way to the drivers side and it should come off just like the zipper to a jacket.
I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...
Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line

What year/make jeep do you have? On my 03 the original soft top rear window had a 2 way zipper, and you just opened the zipper all the way and then pull it out of the zipper.
Then pull the bottom of the window (the bar holding it to your tub) and the window is out.
I had the original and a replacement zipper both fail so the last time I had 2 zippers put in-one from each side meeting up at the top center. (my 94 YJ had a 3 zipper system!)
Now I can unzip from each side and just go up to the corners, roll it up (I installed 2 snap grommet straps to hold it up ) and if I want to remove it, just unzip both all the way to the center and pop them out. Works great...
Its a 1998. There are two zippers, one was on the right, and one on the left. I unzipped all the way to the drivers side as suggested, but I couldn't get it to come off. Didn't want to give it any force, but I will go out and try again.
Kevin, it's not just you. The guys who sold me my Rubicon the other day couldn't figure out how to get the top down. I had to show them. But the rear window stumped me too. I'm going to go try this now.
I just purchased a 2014 Wrangler JK with the same issue. When bringing both zippers to the drivers side and pulling up on the zipper the window still seems unmovable and will not come out of the zipper. Will try some WD40 and force but wanted to mention that this is a totally valid question and I appreciate those trying to provide actual help.
Same issue on my new 2015 premium top, pull both zippers to the driver side, but the window wont come off! Struggled for 15 minutes and gave up. I think there is one tooth remaining that wont let me break free. VERY frustrating indeed!
Online it says the zipper pulls come off with the window, so I am pulling down on the window section, and it just wont come off.
Check the zipper connection in the lower left (drivers side) and make sure when it was zipped that is was mated properly, if not, it will take some wiggling, giggling and tugging to get it apart - Mine zipped like that on me once. Now very careful on starting the zippers.
