Yeah my windshield broke when coming out. though I bet you could moan enough to get the ins co to cover at least part of it, if not now maybe later... Either way, like I always say, nothing beats a nice new clear windshield!
I hesitate to say it, but you can probably rest assured that the rear glass is r&r-able w/out breaking, which is good cuz it's expensive as heck.

On my dime. :-(
I visited on my lunch break and the body shop owner asked me if I wanted to
take the back seat and package tray out for the glass guy. So dressed in my
work duds (Oxford and dark-colored slacks), I go to town. This is the
second time I have removed this stuff and it was just as fun as I remembered
from last time; 30-45min of swearing in German. Oh well, this part of the
job is on my dime as well, so at least I am 'saving' money, right? Hah hah.
Glass comes out tomorrow and I will know by how much my wallet will be
lightened. (fingers crossed)
I had them weld shut the cell antenna hole while they were repairing the
