    Can you do it without breaking the glass? Lets just say, "New Years was interesting" and now I need a new back window...

    What car? Yeah, it's quite possible with the right tools.

    You can slide a guitar string under the glass from the outside of the car into the inside of the car and use it as a cable saw to saw all the way around the window if its in one piece. I have successfully removed a windshield out of a monte carlo that way.

    If you don't have a guitar string handy, use an old knife and heat it with a propane torch. You'll have to keep heating it with the torch every few inches but it'll work too.

    thanks for the ideas guys. This is my 1995 Saturn SL1. Some drunk idiot, who shall remain nameless, put a beer bottle through the back window :doah:
