Does anyone know if it's an easy DIY job to fit a rear offside window to a KA (2000 W) ? Some moron panned in the one in my late Granda's car (now used by my folks) the other night. It was one of a dozen cars hit in the same street. Cops were a complete waste of time - not even interested in a great footprint in the snow where the moron had come over the garden wall
Looks like we'd maybe be able to pick one up on ebay for £35-40? which I am guessing is a fraction of the cost of a new one - even via the insurance, what with excesses etc, but we'll only tackle it, if it's a case of a few bolts etc.
Would be grateful for any pointers.

look inside the ka you will see the screws that holds the glass inplace
use a phillips screw driver i recall m8
it's real easy
fit the 2 reont ones 1st then the rear most one with the opener on
contact fords before you buy from a scrap yard as sometimes there is not a lot of diffrence in price
i would also phone around diffrent scrap yards as the price does vary

is it one that pops out a little to open for ventilation??
if so, dead easy, if sealed in, little more tricky!!

as piggy says, if it opens then it should be easy. if its a sealed one it might be worth contacting the likes of autoglass?

Thanks for the reply folks - yes it's the opening one. My Dad managed to pick one up for £17 (+vat?) from a local scrappy. Most other quotes off the net/ebay - were around the £35 mark. We've just to fit it now ! Sounds like it should be ok tho'. Thanks again.
