Are you talking about the belt weatherstripping that goes between the glass and the body. It comes in a set and just snaps in. I've never tried replacing just the felt and not the metal backing if that's what you mean.

Side windows (in the doors) use pre-lined U-channel. You have to remove the old channels and re-rivet the new channels into place.

Rear quarter windows have a channel at the rear that you buy the felt "roll" and glue a strip of it into place.

I've seen a procedure described on "Tbirdsquare" by Tom Maruska (sp?) where he stripped the outer stainless from the fixed U channel, replaced the lining and then re-installed the stainless strips. I have not tried it, but it looks a lot simpler than replacing the channel (which I've done several times)
The rear channels in both front and quarter windows can be relined with a moleskin like fabric as Dakota Boy mentioned.
