The deal on the window is that you have to use butyl tape to attach it to the car.
There are some little rubber blocks that support the glass to keep it in position (vertically).

I had a professional glass installer put the rear window in one of my El Caminos. He used the ribbon sealer, then applied the urethane on top of that.

While on the subject, I have heard that you should not glue the glass only with urethane in on older cars. On newer cars the windshield is part of the structural integrity of the vehicle. On our old A bodies, it makes the glass susceptible to cracking if glued with urethane only.
