Hatchback Glass

Few weekends back I met a guy local to my area who's got a 3rd gen in his garage that he's thinking about selling. Only issue so far is it's got a busted out rear hatchback glass. I'd like to know how hard is it to find the hatchback glass for one of these and any idea how much that would cost just to purchase the glass? I've been looking around a bit on line and only one's I've found are used through ebay and not in my area (no shipping allowed).

Is this glass something next to impossible to find?

Over the years, I''ve seen prices like this

and this

https://www.thirdgen.org/forums/exte...bird-rear.html

Its just a mater of how far you want to drive or how long you want to wait for one to show up near you.
Price is not usually bad at Junk yard or individuals parting out. Transportation is the killer.

Wow, that's really cheap. Only issue I have is I'd have to get one relatively close so I could pick it up. Funny how something like a set of rear view mirror glass or that third brake light costs so much more.

Try checking out this site. I've used it before to find parts and you should be able to find someone close with what you need.

Hey Bill, I just fooled around by looking up a few items for the 3rd gen on that site and it actually brought up some great stuff, and some not so far from where I am. Very good resource. Thanks. I'm definitely going to add that to my favorites for future usage.

Your welcome. It's been a very useful site for me. When my wife accidently backed into my daughter's car, we were able to pick up a new door for a great price and save the hassle of dealing with insurance.

Re: Hatchback Glass

That FREE hatch in Indiana keeps calling to me. I love having spare parts! Actually, I'd like to have an extra handy to start working on before I get paint work done (that's years off).

What year do you need?

I can check my 'stash' and see what I got. I'm almost positive I have one.
