Question Replacing Car Window

We have a 94 Dodge Sundance. The small, left/rear, trianglar door window is broken out completely. It was broken into last year, and we haven't gotten around to fixing it. I don't know much about cars, so my question is this: how difficult would it be for an amateur like myself to replace a broken window? I have cut glass a couple times before, and I know basics about tools. Where would I find the glass to replace it? How much would it cost, approximately, to do it myself rather than having it done for me? Thanks!

That piece of glass will be tempered safety glass. You can't cut it.
The cheapest place to find it would be at a wrecker yard. The gasket will have to come out of the door to be clean throughly. Then you will have a good rubber gasket to glass seal so you won't get wind noise.
At a salvage yard you should pay no more than $10.
New - $60-80.

Good Luck.

Go to a U-Pull-It junkyard and practive on some cars. It should be real easy to do it yourself.
