OK. I'm going to try one last time to explain how to replace the dew wipes (the outside door window weather strip) WITHOUT removing the glass.
First, you need two special tools. The first is a phillips head screwdriver rachet about 3 inches long. Usually these rachet tools have a different size phillips head bit on each side. You must cut or grind off one of these bits so that one side is flat. Then the rachet will fit between the glass and the dew wipe. Second you need a small awl (about 4 inches long including the handle). A cheap one with a screwdriver handle works great. Bend the end of the awl about 1/4 -3/8 inches from the tip at a right angle. Or buy Snap-on part #3ASH90A.
Now you're ready to start (Time required is about 1.5 hours to do both doors)::

I used a variation of the Frank Martin/Space Coast Fieros method. I took a #2 phillips drywall screw bit and used my grinder to make it about 1/4" long. Using a pair of small Needle Nose Vice Grips to hold the shortened phillips bit, I was able to remove the normally inaccessable screws behind the glass. When replacing them, I put a drop of super glue on the screw to hold it to the phillips bit, and reversed the proceedure. Of course, you still have all the other stuff to loosen and remove. My method differs in the tool used to remove the screws. I "think" my homemade tool may be cheaper and allow a little more movement.
