I need to replace the back window of a 1999 Nissan Altima how do I do this
To replace the car window on the driver side you will need to follow the following steps. 1. Disconnect the car battery if the window has automatic controls. 2. Remove the window trim and disconnect the window from manual or automatic controls. 3. Unbolt the regulator that holds the glass and remove the glass. 4. Replace the glass and reattach the regulator, controls and trim.
If you know who made it the factory should be able to supply. If it is stationary and double paned then most glass companies should be able to supply a new glass. Should be able to install new glass in old window even if the frame in solid around glass. There is always a way to replace any window glass.
Several years ago I broke one pane of our Anderson double pane window in the garage. I decided to replace it but found out that the two panes are actually one piece of glass- its moulded into one piece. The cost from Anderson was about the same as the complete window and a glass guy I talked to could make one (taking two panes and making the window) but since it was in the unheated garage I decided to remove the remaining glass and install a single pane of glass. If this were to happen with a window in the house I would just go ahead and replace the whole sash.
Window glass repairs costs less than a total window replacement. The technician will measure the damaged or foggy window. You can replace it with the same glass or upgrade to an energy efficient product. New window glass products can save homeowners money. It significantly reduces the summer heat entering your home and reduces heat loss that occurs during the winter. You can also select glass with tinting, decorative touches or privacy features. The window glass unit remains intact as the technician removes the old glass. They will install the new glass unit and caulk it to provide a moisture barrier.
