Replacement rear door glass

So it was a crappy day. Trying to take apart my rear door off of a 1997 SW and I shattered the rear glass.

It was 3/4 of the way out and then bam. Gone. But to be honest I see no way I would have gotten it out with the type of adhesive that was used on the bottom of the glass to hold it in. Once broken I could hardly get the remaining pieces of glass out! It was surely replaced at one point and set in for life. Sucks big time.

So I will start my process in the morning of finding another one but thought I would start here and see if anyone has found the best place price wise to buy a replacement window with heater and how much am I looking at?

use a product called anti-bond. Comes in small pump bottles and breaks the bond of even the nastiest adhesives like 3M5200.
Available @ hardware stores and West Marine.
