Got my car's back glass smashed today... Suggestions to get it fixed? - June 9, 2012, 07:14 PM

So today, at like 3 pm in a busy residential area, some assholio crack-head motherlover that deserves to die slowly thought it was a great idea to break my back glass on my 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander to steal my wife's make-up bag... Guess the ignorant iced up piece of manure thought it was a purse or something...

Who does that in the middle of the day????

Anyway my deductible is $1000 so it's coming out of my own pocket. Online quotes range from 530 to 950 dollars... That sounds like an awful lot to me, any suggestions/pointers on someone that might be able to help me out? I am really not in need of spending that kind of money this week...

Hit up Camelhumps on here- he works at a glass shop.


They recently had a fire, so not sure if they can get your part right now... but it's worth a shot at least.

Try a salvage yard.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

Wouldn't know where to start removing it from the donor car honestly: it's glued in place, I would certainly pop it trying to get it out.

Then when it comes to setting the new one in place, the glue is expensive and it can be tricky to install by yourself.

Sometimes it's better to bite the bullet and have a pro do it.
