Broken window replacement

1998 36 fdss.
Rock from a lawn mower shattered the fixed panel in the lower portion of the curb side living room window today.

Where does one go for window replacement? Any automotive glass shop?

I assume the whole window-frame and all- has to be removed in order to replace the lower fixed panel.

Any suggestions?

Perhaps auto glass for front cab windows but residential glass for side room window. Challenge will be to match the special window tint/reflective covering that WRV used over the years. Yup--whole frame will have to be removed......

Rv Dealers know but they mark it up. I don't know what part of the country your in but there's a great place in Florida just north of Clearwater. The name starts off Sunshine and I'm not sure if it's Rv window repair. They have other locations but they bring you into the campground and fix it right there. Cheapest I have found. Its 250 a window and they match the tint and camp for free. If you can't find it I'll hunt for you. Up here they wanted 350 plus then the dealer marked it up 150.

Hi Gene,

Take a look at motionwindows.com. They are up in Vancouver, WA. I recently bought a window from them which I ordered thru their website. The website gives you enough instructions to figure out how to specify a window, then you submit that and get a quote. There's a place on the order form to designate that you want the Solar Cool Bronze tint that Alpines have. And, when you talk to them on the phone, you should confirm that that is the right tint for an Alpine.

I had a window from them shipped to me and then took it to a glass shop for the install. You could probably do it yourself but I was more comfortable with someone else doing it.

Hope insurance will cover the damage. Removing the entire window will be necessary. Not difficult, but watch-out, those big windows on the 98s and 99s are heavy!
