    Got a windshield broken trying to remove another from another 4Runner without breaking. Got any ideas?

    Totally not worth it. I recently had my w/s replaced at SafeLite for $258 & it took them about 2 hrs. About 3 weeks later it started leaking & they replaced the whole thing for nothing. Plus they do installs all day every day so they are far more experienced with removal & install w/o damaging the vehicle.

    How badly is it broken? Is it a DD? Is it still legal where you live? Is it still useable?

    Pics?

    I've got a small crack in mine that's been there several months. I've got coverage but, don't like the R&R process and I go thru some windshields. So, I hang out until it's either not legal or it bothers me.

    My last Taco had 3 installed in the 29 months I owned. Garage close to my house would swap it for cheap.

    Afraid my current DD with it's heated edges won't be...

    I tried checking YouTube for you, but there weren't any quality ones.

    After the insurance deductible, my cost for the windshield was a little over $58.

    I agree, have a pro do it. Some things are worth doing yourself, that's not one of them.
