    '04 WRX Front Passenger Window

    So my baby got broken into. Now I'm dealing with all the insurance crap and at this point, right now all I want to do is get the window fixed for the obvious reasons, even though the <deleted> caused 1500.00 worth of damage just to get in the car.

    Most estimates for this work are around $420.00. 290.00 for the glass and the rest labor. Plus the wait... nobody has this in stock.

    I'm beginning to entertain the idea of trying to do this myself if I can find the glass at a salvage yard... there are a lot around the North Texas area.

    My question is... is this a stupid idea? I bet it is Any advice or recommendations?

    While I can completely understand why you'd be mad, please don't dodge the swear filter and introduce inappropriate language into this forum. Our OT forum lets a few things slide here and there, but outside of there our Admin wants to maintain a PG-13 environment.

    Don't know about fixing the damage yourself. I haven't had to do a window replacement on the car.

    I've changed out a honda window before...basically just a couple set screws on the bottom track that holds the glass; it was easy. I assume the subarus are the same, however there could be some rediculous procedure to get to the screws I don't know about.

    Taking the door panel off is plenty easy, then just remove the clear plastic and have a look for yourself. It shouldnt take more than a half hour time from taking it apart, to inspecting whether it could be done or not.

    Thanks Drummerboy... I'll try that out. I'm kind of assuming the same thing you are, just wanted a second opinion.

    Also, sorry for the expletives! I'm brand new here and, well... mad
