It's easy enough to do, take off the door inner panel, then the rubber strip at the bottom of the glass, wind the window down a bit to line up the bolts with the holes in the door inner...undo them, lift the glass out...replace :)

If you need one, I have a good window :)

quite common scratched glass :( think its grit in the rubber/felt strips along the length of the window.

I heard that Japanese glass has a high content of lead which leads to the ease of scratching :( but i dont know how true this is :?

:D
