Re: Windshield from junkyard, Re: team door handle

Having recently replaced the small quarter window on the right side,
I've got a little experience with these things--but I wouldn't care to
do a windshield. The Bentley does show you how to do it, and though I
didn't really look at the windshield job, I believe they say it's a two
person job to get it out. 

If you do go the professional route, you might get any needed clips and
such from the dealer, since (in my experience) the auto glass shop will
not bother to. They seem to believe in that urethane adhesive as a
replacement for just about everything.
