'08 STS-V Sedan Black Formerly three CTS-V's, XLR and STS4N*
My new to me '08 STS-V has some broken elements in the defroster grid and unfortunately, has tint film on the glass. Both a tint shop and a glass shop told me that it is nearly impossible to remove the baked on tint without causing major damage to the remaining grid and that grid repair won't last. Both shops are suggesting replacing the rear window. Problem is that the rear window is a dealer only part (according to the glass shop) and I expect it to be very expensive so I'd like to find scrap yard glass. So is the rear window a different part in the V from the standard STS? What is the correct part number and does anyone know if the same part number was used for all years?
