I have an 03 Tahoe and it looks like it wouldn't be too much trouble to replace.

I've heard these windows can be expensive.

You might call one of the 2-your-door windshield replacement companies like Safelite; they might do back windows.

They replaced my Tahoe windshield at my office for less than $200 after a golf club went thru it. No, nothing fun like Tiger Woods. The club slipped out of the hand of an 8th grader practicing at the local course and it flew up, into the parking lot, and thru my window. Wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it.

Kid felt real bad but I told him I thought it would be pretty funny if it wasn't my car.

I looked at the situation and figured it was easy I went to the salvage yard and picked up the window, it came with the frame its all one unit. got home there are 2 c clips that you have to pull take the struts off and remove broken window. Do the opposite you probably dont need help that easy. The struts are easy to remove at the end there are metal clips there is a slot that you can use a screwdriver to pry up. When replacing just replace the clips tthen tap them over the ball it was an easy fix and saved over $175.00 sweeeet

Fishin,
I have no idea what state you are in, but in MN. state law requires insurance companies to replace insured vehicles glass at no cost and no deductible to the insured person.
The state wants to do as much as it can to insure that vehicles are not driving around the sate with broken glass causing visibility issues.

i.e. as long as you have glass coverage on the vehicle.

Be safe
