Default Rear windshield removel on 05 Chevy Aveo LS (Sedan Model)

I'm needing to know some info on how to remove the rear glass in an Aveo without breaking it. A lady I work with asked me to track down a rear windshield for her Aveo do to she couldn't afford to have it replaced by a glass shop, so after a few weeks of doing some calling around to my local junk yards I was able to find a 04 Chevy Aveo like hers. So know the hard part come into play and that is removing the rear glass on that 04 so it can be put in her car. I found a removal kit threw my local auto parts store but not really for sure if that is what I am gonna need to remove the rear glass. I used this same kit to remove the rear glass om my 88 model Oldsmobile but there is a big age difference so I really don't know it it would be along the same lines to remove the glass. Is this what I am needing to get and if so how hard would it be to use to cut threw the adhesive on the rear glass. Any and all advice will be very helpful in this matter. Thanks.

1 Slide the tip of the window trim removal tool underneath the plastic molding on the rear window.

2 Pry up on the tool and work it around the outer edge of the glass carefully pulling up the molding until the entire molding has been removed.

3 Cut the underlying urethane molding with the blade of the automotive cutting knife. Since the urethane molding is going to be quite tough, it may take you anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to cut through it.

4 Pull the windshield off the frame of the Aveo.

Make sure you use safety glasses and gloves in case the glass shatters.

I can't afford it to shatter because that is the only Aveo I have been able to find at a junkyard.

I meant in case you shatter the one you are pulling out. Breaking the glass free from the urethan adhesive creates a lot of stress.

When you intall the new one, make sure the edge of the replacement glass is absolutely clear of any old adhesive or any other contamination. Same for the weld flange on the vehicle where the glass interfaces. If there is any disruption to a smooth surface between the two you run the risk of leaks, and possibly cracking the glass. If there is a high point between the glass and the sheet metal all the stress of pushing the glass into place will be focused on that one point, and the glass could crack.

The tempered glass is usually pretty tough. As long as you take your time to cut the urethane you should be fine. Trying to save a windshield from a wrecking yard is way harder, they crack super easy.

Also can you remove the plastic molding from the car without using a trim removal tool, maybe use a flat head or something? Also the kit I was talking about it actually a few thing and one of them is steel looking string that you attach two handles to to use a two person saw I would be guessing.

Once you get the wire fed through the urethane yes you for sure want to use the two Handel thing to cut the glue. Just be careful not to saw into the glass always pull the tool towards the body and not the glass.

What about the plastic molding can I use a flat head to remove it or not?
