Hey All,

I was just told that new these windows are $8-900. With a new windshield running me $165 that seems mighty high. I found one used for $200 I was hoping to pay in the $35-50 range.

Anybody else ever break one of these things? or better yet anybody got one lying around that they value less than an arm and a leg?

Or is this another case of me severely underestimating the cost of owning one of these things?

Now is the time to get an aftermarket window that can open and has a screen.

Everyone will list their favorite vendors shortly...

happy coaching!

Peninsula is $295 for the small door window and $280 for a big window. I was hoping to find a reasonable small OEM window for the door and order two more big sliders.

That price is not thermopaned and I really need that driving up here in Minnesnowta... Dont'cha know then

Dude, I think I still have mine. It was a double pane and the outside pane was broken, so now, it's a single pane.

You're welcome to it.

It would do till you can save up for a good one.

I think the 102s used a slightly different window.

This guy on Ebay is parting out 2 buses. You might ask him if he has one.

Thanks for the leads you guys,

Happycampersrus,

The door is missing in the picture but maybe he has the glass to the other side. I'm fairly sure they are swappable. I left him a message.

Tom Y ,

Any help would be appreciated.

Call Choo Choo Express Garage he has at least one "9" that has one on his lot being parted out! I know this because when my "96A3" was there having an engine swapped out (it was cheaper to have them swap it than the wreck bill and I supplied the engine!), the door window ended up getting cracked and they would have used the one off the "9" had it been the right one. But we ended up ordering one somewhere for around $300.

I had mine made for the door in my 8

I don't think it cost a hundred dollar and that was with smoke glass

I took the frame out and took it to a glass shop that makes IG units

They drew up a pattern and made it out of laminated glass on one side and I think if I remember correctly (sometimes that happens) the other side is tempered but maybe not

The window has been on the road for over 30 thousand miles and still has the seal
