Camry vent glass

Okay, so while this isn't directly rover related, indirectly it affects my rover because the camry gets the rover's place in the garage until the camry is fixed...

Does anyone have any experience replacing a vent window (the fixed, triangle shaped window behind the passenger window) in a car? Some d-bag broke into my camry last night by busting my window. I found an ebay window for cheap and was thinking of doing the job myself. Any advice? Think I can do this job on my own without any specialized tools or glass repair know-how?

I was really thinking/hoping i could do this myself. I have called a couple places now and would prefer not to shell out for the job. This is what I found on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1992-...Q5fAccessories

Looks like it comes with the gasket and everything... so how hard could it be???

I've done it before, it's not hard, just incredibly tedious, especially getting everything re-aligned so you don't have an obnoxious window that's slower than the others. My guess though is, if Japaneese engineering is at all reflected in the steering rack I just did in an Infiniti, the Japanese don't have serviceability in mind when they design these things. Expect a lot of hard to reach fasteners, and things that are next to impossible to access.

Just as a data point if anyone ever has a similar problem: the vent window in this vehicle was incredibly easy to fix. I'm very happy I didn't pay anyone $200 to fix it for me.

It only took one beer..er...about 20 minutes. This particular window didn't even require removing any door panels or anything.
