    hey, ive had my top off since around april, adn so ive had my window rolled down, and i tried rollin it up the other day and it wouldnt so i took it apart to find out that my rear glass is shattered into 800 million pieces, i was wondering if this has happened to any one else, and should i jsut go to a glass repair shop, or cruise junk yards so i cna also get a regulator to go with it?

    I've had to replace mine 3 times this year. About $160 for Glass Doctor to do it. If it breaks again I'm just leavin it

    I've heard of 'em breaking with the hardtop on, while twisting her up on a trail (even happened to me), but never while rolled down. Bummer for you.

    If's it the privacy glass, be prepared to pay $$$ from a glass shop, as a couple of 'em around here (Detroit) wanted $400+, just for the glass. The clear piece was only $80. If it's privacy, cruise the junkyards...
    I fixed the reason mine broke, it was the rear pillars of the fiberglass top, they were loose, so I screwed some braces in and fiberglassed back over it...stiffen her right up, glass hasn't broken since...
