Cracked windshield

Hey. I have a 2002 WRV and love it. Got a cracked windshield on drivers side...bouncing road debris got me today. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Coach Glass is a good. There are several threads on this forum regarding windshield replacement and Coach Glass IIRC was where WRV got their windshields.

The installation of the Apline wind shield is challenging for the average installer. Because the window is free-floating and doesnt use a gasket, many installers can get the new window secured but struggle to get a good clean job on smoothing/trimming the outside sealant before it sets up....Most glass repair places can get the new glass...try to get an installer who claims experience with "floating" windshields.....

I've replaced three. I just call up the insurance to get approval to use a local installer with experience with RV windshields. Call the installer and give them the numbers on the lower edge of the windshield and they call me when the windshield arrives to make an appointment to install it.

So just call around for an installer in your local area if your insurance allows you to choose...if they don't allow you to choose, the onus is totally on them.

If you don't have insurance coverage, stand by for sticker shock.

If on the west coast, take it to A-1 Auto Glass (Formerly Coach Glass) in Coburg, OR. Take I-5 North or South to exit 199, Go to the west, turn right at 1st traffic light. Go down and you will see them on the left in part of the old Monaco Plant Building. The Phone Number is 800-944-3230, explain you have an RV and it's an Alpine. I have had them do 2 of mine, they are the best. A normal glass shop cannot do the window correctly, and it will leak every time. These folks are the best, plus the sister company manufacturers the glass for about 80% of the bus and RV market, so they work with the manufacturers to get it right.

Coach Glass in Coburg, OR has a subsidy called RV Glass Solutions. They are co-located in the same building. They know Alpine and will treat you very well.
