Quarter window replacement.

Hello guys,

My car got broken into a couple weeks ago, nothing got stolen but they broke my driver's side quarter window. The Mazda shop was going to charge me $400($200/hr) for labor because it is technically the part of the body(I understand the logic but still can't justify labor cost). Anyway, has anyone had experience replacing the quarter window by themselves? Seems not that hard unless I need to use spec'ed adhesive. Please advise!

Thanks,
Ji

What do you mean by the quarter window - that little one at the back? Usually the windshield companies take care of side glass anyway but that rear one is bonded in before you get any big ideas.

Does insurance not cover this type of damage?

In the U.S., I believe window breakage is covered by your Comprehensive policy, not Collision, nor Liability.

Anchorman, "bonded" includes simply glued?

Yes, same here. This is why I wouldn't mess around with something like this. I'd leave it to a professional and pay for the expertise.

Terrible that your car was broken into ... feels like an invasion of your privacy, if not your person :--(

As for the labor costs, the insurance companies usually get a discount ... just make sure it's a reputable shop that does the repairs.
