Question about 1998 Toyota Sienna
The rear quarter window on my '98 toyota sienna van was shattered. I'm wondering if I can get a new one from a salvage yard and if I can replace it myself? Do salvage yards sell windows and are they able to remove them? I don't care if it is motorized. I just want the window replaced. A new window would cost more than the van is worth. Also, how do I replace it?
Yes, it is possible to replace the window yourself. It is not always an easy project, as it can get long and tetious. But, if you set aside a few hours, get a cheap panel remover kit (available at almost any parts store) and be patient, you can get it whipped.
You should be able to find one at a wrecking yard for fairly cheap (much cheaper than new from a glass shop). You can also keep an eye out on sites like craigslist for people parting out the same vehicle or offering auto glass at discounted rates.
Prior to taking on the job, it would be a good idea to watch a few "how to" videos available on a number of different sites. Here's one example: Good luck!
