Rear window glass?EA82

and B how hard is it to install it yourself or does it need to be professionaly installed?
The glass is the window in the "lift gate".I can find a whole hatch assemby for $80 bucks with glass.Or I can find a glass piece and have it installed for $80.Or I can run up to pull and save in spokane and grab one for about $28 then install it myself.

If I found a hatch in as good or better shape, same color, I probably would swap hatches.
Glueing the "new" window in isn't too big a deal - I watched about 3 windshield installs over the years. I never did one myself due to not having a spare windshield. Broke a good one (maybe a year old) trying to save it from a doner.

I would start looking for the newer setup at a junkyard, and if you don't feel confident about doing it yourself, have it done professionally. It will still be less expensive than setting the glass the old-fashioned way.
good luck, John

If you have access to a JY that won't charge you for "failed attempts", by all means - give it a shot. MD describes the procedure very accurately. Heat (weather natural or artificial) will help soften the brittle adhesive.
But if you gotta get it right the first time, have it taken out by a pro. Money well spent, as far as I'm concerned...
good luck, John
