    A100 Windshield Glass ? Empty A100 Windshield Glass ?

    Post by Guest Thu Oct 21, 2021 11:59 am

    One of mine has slight wiper scratches, the other delamination a bit. I'd like to get new glass or good old glass. New glass here is $276.

    I could polish the scratched one, maybe look for another one to replace the delaminated side.

    Are there any cheaper replacements to be had, or does someone here have one or two to part with?

    Thanks much!

    it strikes me as high,here i can get the glass for 125 for both,but thats carryout. not terrible to put in but not fun either. so if this is install,proban
    bly a decent deal. a new gasket i think is a little over a 100.

    I have the gasket already. The glass is pretty high, $196 for the glass, $80 to cut both pieces which is reasonable I think

    Wow. That's a lot of money. Over here in Germany, a local glass shop (doing normal windows and stuff) made mine (security glass/laminated) based on the old ones - cut to fit for less than 100 EUR (a bit above 100 USD, I guess). I put them in myself, its a pain if its cold. The warmer, the better. Use soap-water to ease installation.

    69 i'm with you. any local glass shop who can cut glass should have in standing in the corner .
    with a 20 percent tint id say $60.00 each. this is just laminated flat glass.
