Default Front windshield replacement cost? 1997 Bonneville SSE

The car was parked in the yard, 1997 Bonneville SSE. It was fine. I go out this morning and the front windshield is cracked across the drivers side just above the heads up display!!! Crap! What is a good price to expect to pay for a new windshield?

Thanks!

where are you located? There might be yards around that can get you one fairly cheap off car. Otherwise they can be $600-1200 I think is what I have heard.

About 240 at Safelite.com thats without the HUD. Make sure the get that seal in correctly. You may have to call them back a few times to correct leaks.

If you get a non-HUD windshield there wil be a double image from the HUD.

Do you have glass coverage?? If so,it should cover the new windshield probably with no deductable

Well I like driving this car, but it is almost 10 years old. I carry collision insurance on the car, but I do not have comprehensive. A tree limb must have fallen on the front windshield, that is all I can figure. Then again one of my neighbors could have been mowing their yard and thrown a rock with their lawn mower. This is one of those mysteries. I don't think anyone is going to fess up.

I am going to have to find someone local who can replace this windshield if there is a problem with leaks with the internet folks. That should be no problem though.

Thanks for the pricing. At least now I won't be totally shocked. I like the hud in this car, but I did not get it on my C5 Corvette, because I tend to ignore it on the road especially on the freeway.

I am getting mine installed on a 1997 SE for $250 CANADIAN on Thursday next week. Now, I know the guy so I'm getting a little better price on labor, but I also don't have heads up display. I think you will be looking around the $600 mark.

Hey guys. I got a new windshield today for $275.00 installed with the heads up display. I have been checking on a high speed skip in my engine. I pulled the coils off today and they seem to be alright. Could they have just corroded on the contacts and pulling them off cleaned them a little? I swear the car seems to run better now.

The window they installed was broken imagine that. They get to replace it tomorrow. People suck!

wow, not a bad deal if the HUD is good. you'll have to let us know if it workes out alright. i've been told that some of the cheaper HUD windshields still give out that double immage... Mine was about $600, but insurance covered alsmot all of it. but it you got a good one for $275 you did great!
