Auto Glass/glass replacement
QUESTION: 1980 chevy malibu window replacement drivers side manual window 4 door wagon
ANSWER: Hi Art,
I would find a used one or have it installed professionally!!!!!!!!!
I have sent along a picture of the Malibu 2 door glass with parts and Belief Me!, you Do Not want to try this one! I do not remember if the 4 door has the exact same setup but because the Stops are installed with 1/4 inch rivets it would cost you more to buy the tools to do do this job than to have it done by a shop professionally. If you have the glass already then you know what I am talking about, if not a Junk yard one costs 25 - 50.00 New 75.00 - 100.00 The cost of having it installed by a glass shop is about 50-100 The cost of not spending a whole day pulling your hair out, Priceless! If you still want to do it yourself, you will have to find a Haynes or Chilton manual for this job it is just way to long of a process to install to write here.
Hope This Helps! Derek = D

QUESTION: This was simple and took more time taking the door panel off then to do the window.
If we are talking about the same door glass , It comes New out of the Box with 7 holes! , 5 Spanners and 2 1/4 Rivets for the Glass Stop.
I was only trying to steer you away from going with a New door glass
and having to put all these parts back on to that door glass.
Going Used or having it done Professionally would solve that problem. Unless someone tells me in their question , I have no idea how capable they are.
I am only here to help people if I can. I am not a Computer or a Database and I can make mistakes but I volunteer my time and I am not paid to answer any questions. I have answered almost 300 Questions on here and I have never made a Dime but I think helping people is worth it. OR IS IT?
If people can leave such Negative ratings after you spend an hour researching and downloading pictures and writing down interchange parts lists you wonder why you even bother?
I think your Rating of my answer was undeserved and am asking you to withdraw it or change the Rating with this reply. Thank You!
