I changed passenger side door glass after someone broke into my T-top back in Nashville. It is a pain in the @$$!!! I don't know if new door glass is available or not. I found a good used glass in a junkyard for $50.

The glass is riveted to the works inside the door, and you have to remove the stop cushions as well to even get the glass in and out of the door... It took me and a friend of mine, who is used to this sort of thing, about an hour and a half. He said it was tougher than any car he had ever done...

Good luck.

Never had to put one in a fiero yet. Just a thought...but is seem to remember someone saying it was easier to replace by taking off outter door skin? Glass shop rule is if the scratch catches on your fingernail, its too deep to repair. Yes you can get new glass from shops like Safelite or Guardian. They usuall charge me $25 labor on a hardtop door glass...sounds like thats a bargain to me.

I found that no glass "repair" people will touch a side glass to remove those ugly scratches we allow to happen. I had to have the glass replaced. $125.00 turn key job. It is back to factory original, though.
