    Just use "clear silicon adhesive" to reattach the window to the metal glide channel. Just be sure it is aligned properly and gently clamp into place. Leave it that way about 24 hrs. No need to even remove the glass, unless broken!! After the adhesive cures, roll down window and lube the tracks with a silicone spray lube. While you'er at it, lube the passenger window tracks as well... If you must replace the glass, let me know for more info.. Check youtube, may be a video that will help! If not, repost your question if needed.
