Hi new to the forum. Just got approved. My glass in my 88 was busted out n i dont know the details to replace or get the cflass out the bottom. I also need to replace the the tumblers in both doors as they are siezed. Got everything including my new dew wipes from a member on here who makes them bette rthan a vendor. Got everything through a member here but no longer dables in fieros. Sorry for asking for help and not searching. Not lazy just ive in NY and the snows hitting and would like a quick but proper resolution to fix. I dont even know the deal with the white doughnuts that hold the glass and what next after the rivets hold them together. TY GUYS

PS let me know if this is in the right area of the forum in case moderators move it and i have to find it in its correct location

Can I do that. Its nogo cause i had a shop work on the car said the oil pressure would fluctuate and they said bad sensor. Paid to replace n 2 days later my motor popped. Want to save this formula gem so an engine is needed. Still runs just knocks. Only drove it about 500 miles n 3 years. Typically do my own work have a lot invested already. New mounts top/bottom, new clutch/bearing, springs, struts, distributor, polution lines, calipers, rotors, brakes, side select cable, short throw, all e-brake cables, rebuilt headlights AND A TON MORE. REALLY its a new car outside of the motor.

You might be able to buy replacement door glass from Prosource Glass, but I don't know if they have any in stock still from the previous batch. Contact them and see. The owner of it, Richard, is also on the forum here, but I don't recall his username. He's posted threads before when new batches were being ordered.

Start simple. See if Safelite has glass. If not see if any local yards have a Fiero. All the windows are the same for all years.

The poster in this thread replaced the window from the bottom of a stripped door frame that was removed from the car. I believe that the same technique can be used without door removal if you have the ability to raise the car about 3 feet about the ground. I have a door glass to replace and am dreading the job. Both the door skin and the inner door panel need to be removed to get a replacement window in that has the rollers attached. The only thing that I would add is to mark the position of every component so that alignment becomes easier to do.

Just went through the window-sourcing thing a few weeks ago. I think your primary options are:

1-Prosource (the green OEM are $160 + $15 box fee + UPS which ranges from $40-60 within the continental USA.)

Contact Richard at ProSource Glass international

Toll Free 877-345-2800 US & Canada
978-975-5400
978-790-4657 Cell

www.prosourceglassintl.com

2-Local boneyards (call them first)

3-Safelight (good luck, they would never call me back.)

4-Make a 'WTB Passenger Door Glass' posting in the Mall (and hope that someone nearby has a spare)

You should be able to check on their web site, but I'm pretty sure the only glass they list for Fieros, is the windshield.
