If you are replacing the glass because it is damaged it is easier and sometimes cheaper to have a glass shop do it, That is because by the time you buy the sealer and new glass you have spent more than what they will charge, and it comes with a warranty.
However if you want to DIY it, You need to remove the inner 1/4 panel trim and pull the headliner down a bit. You will see nuts all around the glass. Remove all of those. Now you need to use a SHARP knife to cut the sealer strip all the way around the glass, then remove the window.
Now CAREFULLY remove the remaining sealer from around the opening. Don't damage the paint or you will have a place for rust and leaks to start. Once clean you apply a 1/4" bead of butyl seal tape around the glass making sure you go around each stud. Now line up and set the glass into the opening. Install the nuts and tighten to 40 INCH pounds. Reinstall the inner trim.
