I just bought my first Jeep last night, a used 2019 2 door Wrangler. I asked about these yellow plastic tabs around both windows. The salesman wasn't sure what they were, and the service dept. had already gone home. Any ideas? Thanks, and looking forward to learning a lot on the site.

It might be used during shipment so windows don't break. Maybe the guys in shop didn't see them to take them out. Just a guess

They are spacers.

When the glass is installed these plastic clips center the glass by spacing it on two sides. To remove them just twist them 90 degrees and pull. The urethane holding the glass is long since set.

I'd would remove them ASAP or potentially risk any involved weather stripping becoming permanently deformed.

There isn't any weather stripping on the glass. Its held in with urethane, a type of glue. The window clips don't go deep enough to even touch the urethane. The car actually rides through water test with them installed.

Just twist them horizontal, pull, and throw them away.

I can't on the one I have because it's a rental. For once something isn't my problem 😂. Thanks for good info.

Ah OK thanks, so these are non-opening windows then?
Hard to tell from the picture and i never had a Wrangler.
