2002 SL
Default Replacing Passenger Window

Well I just walked outside to get something from my car, in the driveway, and found my passenger side window shattered. Granted the pieces are not everywhere and the window is still in it's spot, just with a zillion cracks. I don't know how this happened.

Anyhoo, I have searched through previous posts and haven't found much on replacing, for example a how to. I have manual windows not power. I was wondering where I could buy the glass. Also which sides of the door I have to take off. I drive an 2002 SL.

I was also wondering if there is some sort of trick to keeping the glass from shattering everywhere. I was thinking maybe duck tape or something. Maybe even just opening the door and finishing the job by smashing the window so the shards fly away from the car.

Thanks.

Seeing that glass is tempted your best bet would be to get a replacement from a auto salvage yard.

Here is a little glass removal how to.Be warned when you try to move the one you have it will shatter.

there is this film stuff called window gaurd... It is a shatter proof film that they put on houses so people can not break in. Basically, you can either get it tinted or clear, but if its clear you can not see it at all, and basically, when you hit the window it only cracks, but will not break. Its hard as hell to tear through. It really works. Even if you continuously beat on it, it will not break. Its tough so that the glass does not cut into it when someone is hitting it. Its not overly pricey... shop around see what you can find... but this is the jist of it.

Hope this helps you... I just went through this a couple of months ago... except the @ss holes cut my interior harness trying to get my radio... so I have spent 4 hours figuring out what wire is what.

You'll have to remove the outer door panel:
