Could someone post any info from the service manual about replacing the front windshield on an 04 XT?

Thanks

I just wanted to see what the manual said about changing out a windshield. I have a crack in mine and I need to replace it. I am tossing up the idea of doing it myself.

I watched the guy change mine, which you can view here. It requires skills & special tools. Not something I'd want to try! My windshield with new trim was around $200. Now it's free, since it's covered on my insurance. :wink:

The glass guy that did my windshield replacement did it totally different from the PDF instructions & I watched every step. He'd been doing glass work for nearly 30 years & he was very good! I was impressed enough with his workmanship, that I wote a thank you letter to the company that employed him. :wink:

Thanks for posting the info Pleiad7.

Bobby,

Unforunetly insurance will cover mine but my deductible is $500 so that is probably useless. I will have to check around to see about prices. What kind of glass did the guy use? I heard PPG is really good.
