I've pulled glass from both a 1954 and a 55. The clips that hold the trim on went through the rubber gasket and had a threaded stud with nut on the inside of the car. Really hard to remove! That was the only clips I saw holding the glass in, but it did the job. I didn't see any sign of sealant on the glass. John

Should be the same for 56.

I just checked the body parts book and the clips have the same part numbers for 55 and 56.
