Glass for my 2012 imiev?

Sun Jun 13, 2021 10:42 am

New to the forums. I bought a used 2012 imiev and it has a missing passenger side glass. I did find one from satellite but they want $609.99 plus tax. Does anyone know of any other place I can get one cheaper online? I'm located in Lafayette Louisiana. I was expecting to pay $200-300 for one. I'll try calling car junk yards but I'm sure the imiev will be a hard car to find parts for or even used parts.

I suspect a used one from a wrecking yard may be your best bet. You could probably buy a whole door for much less than the $600 price you mentioned

Sorry to hear you need passenger side glass- I have a spare set for the driver's.
The best junkyard resource these daze is www.car-part.com
THere's a car with both sides intact in Texas, asking $50 per window.
