Hello and good day to you:

First may I say....that if you have never replaced a window in a vehicle, I would strongly advise you to leave it to the professionals.

To replace the back Lift Gate Glass with that shade of privacy class I would estimate that it would be any where from $100 to $200 Dollars. But shop around...and see if any one can give you a better price.

Do you have Insurance on the Vehicle?? Do you have a High Deductible?? If so I would have it done myself by having some one replace the glass. That way you don't have to file a Claim, and have your insurance rates go up.

Good luck, and Good Repairing.

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6

hey,
thanks for the reply. yea ive taken apart and removed and replaced the side windows on my audi to replace the guides, but never a back window. especially one like the windstar that i dont see how the glass is even on the door. so ill definitely leave it to the professionals. and i dont even have full cov. on the windstar, so either way im ok with the insurance.
