Windshield replacement. How to?

Jeepchick got a monster chunk taken out of her windshield.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] We were wondering how to replace it and what steps are involved.
Thanks

Re: Windshield replacement. How to?

Whatever you do don't use a screwdriver to take it out with. I think the new ones are glued in so you'll probably need to take it someplace. To save a buck, have a shop cut one for you and install it. Cost me 70 bucks to have one cut and installed.

Re: Windshield replacement. How to?

I did it once. Ducmon900 is right; let the pros do it. But, if you do it yourself, use a sturdy string to zip the new one in from the outside. Put the gasket on the glass. Have a helper. Hold it in place pull the string to the inside.
Good luck , Larry

Re: Windshield replacement. How to?

What sucks is that the places around here want $200 to put in a new one.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
I guess we are going to have to suck it up and pay these "people". However, I think the insurance company will cover it with no deductible since it is a safety issue.
Thanks again.
