    Well the neighbors blew the back window out with a golf ball yesterday so I need to find another one. My question is this. Does it matter if it comes out of a manual or electric gate? I'm thinking the glass is all the same. Also, are 73-87 all the same? Or is it 75-87 the one I need?

    If the neighbors broke it, take your rig to the local glass shop and have them install a new one. Send the neighbors the bill. No need for you to go through the trouble of trying to pull & install a used window just because they decided your driveway looked like a par 3.

    Have a glass shop do it.

    I tried installing my own, after I paid $50 for it and decided I was more likely to bust the SOB myself, so I had a glass shop do it. I think they charged me aroung $50-$75 just to install it.

    In retrospect, I should I have just bought a new window...

    Oh, they are paying for it. He and I were going to install it ourselves...Is it really that bad?

    Pay a shop to do it. If THEY bust it it's theirs. If the two of you bust it.....well.....

    I did my own and I don't remember is being too much of a pita. Its just cramped for space. Although, if they are paying, I'd have a glass shop do it.

    He found one somewhere for $250 earlier, just the glass :rolleyes: .....I just called around and got a best price of $145 installed.....guess which way I'm going? I figured it would be a lot more than that new. Thanks guys.
