Need Window for 99 Safari
 
2 Attachment(s)
We need to replace a broken window segment in our newly acquired '99 Safari. It broke after being cranked to close but stuck open. A few minutes later it closed itself but so hard that it shattered the glass. I'm sure we aren't the first to experience this so can anyone help with finding a replacement piece and how to install it? From what we have read this is a Creation window and they have been out of business for a while.
Thanks for your help.

Our side window did the same thing a few months back. We could not find a source for a replacement.

We took off one of the other windows to be used as a template and dropped both off at a glass shop. They managed to make a replacement to match fairly closely to the original. Color and fit look good but the glass is a little wavey. Most likely only noticeable by me and no one else. Was under $50.

timmaah, thanks for the info. You mention you took off one of the other windows so I have another question. See the attached pic and note. How did you get the other one out?

Gently but with some force.. with the window tilted up like in the picture.. pull straight down. There is a little C hook that is the hinge.

I am also looking for a replacement rear street side window. Any sources for salvage?
