The OEM windshield glass was made by "Sikursiv, Dealer pn # 3523653. Does anyone know if these are still available and if so, at what cost? I got a quote for a new windshield for $265 installed...The place I got a price from had a hard time cross referencing the glass but they eventually found one. My vehicle will never be a collectors item so I don't care if replacement parts are a perfect match. I basiucally want a safe install and the ability to see when I take her for a ride...She has 124,000 miles under her bealt and is an 88. Any info is appreciated.
If you are not concerned about originality, go with the best price you can get. The original glass came from, I believe, a Swedish manufacturer. I suspect a used windshield may be had, but doubt there is a likelihood of finding any NORS.
Replacement windshields are certainly available as I recently had one installed on my '91.
FWIW, while the shop was replacing it, they worked with me and allowed me to glue down the top corner edges of the dash which have a tendency to curl if your car spends much time in the sunlight.
Try to take advantage of that opportunity while your windshield is out. Definitely worth it.
