Default Replacing Quarter Glass

I have a 2017 Nissan Sentra and it got broken into last night in Oakland. They broke the RH passenger quarter glass.

I found a replacement piece on Ebay for $85 but the cheapest quote I have from low priced auto glass companies that use used glass is 199 plus tax and another for 220 out the door if I pay cash.

How difficult is it to actually do this swap myself?

Taking the trim off will be the hard part. Get a good clip remover and a few new clips in case some break.

Any recommendations for clip removers?

You mean just for basic interior plastics and the like? I have had this kit for awhile now. Nothing special or exceptional about it but it's cheap and it gets the job done. It also comes with a couple of cat claws for getting under christmas tree fasteners and what not.

Similar if not identical ones are sold under a variety of different brands, honestly I'd go by what's cheapest or best suited for what you're doing with it.

The glue is PITA to remove, and if it is a used glass, there is a couple of plastic guide pins that will be cut off when removed, so it will be trickier to install, but no biggie. FWIW, I would gladly pay the quoted installed price to keep from futzing with it...

Yeah, I'm definitely leaning towards paying for the used glass installation quote and hoping the trim isn't too scratched up. Was mostly curious on how hard of a job this would be but I need my window back sooner than later.

FYI, this is the replacement I found. It appears to have the guide clips.
