rear window

busted one of my rear windows this past weekend delivering a ping pong table i only sold for 75 bucks. DO'H. toyota is charging almost 600 for a replacement one. i am curious if it is something i can change out myself. i had found a online manual saying it is farely easy. i am wondering if anyone out there has changed theirs out? Also i have read a few post about aftermarket power sliding rear windows. i have have done some googleing but have not found any. Any help would be much appreciated.

Replaced mine with lexan panels. Easy enough -- cut, apply tint, and insert into the frame.

right after i got my truck a lawn mower shot a rock through one of my windows. i called alot of shops and toyota and everyone said the same thing, that the back window was all one unit and the individual panes could not be replaced. my insurance covered it for free so i didnt really care, but all the quotes i got were for around $600, not for labor but for the actual window and frame. i guess it's possible to just replace an individual frame but i was told that it was not

My father was robbed when he got his 250 the very second night, and they broke the little window in the back they told him the same, a single unit worth around 500-700 dont remember.... insurance covered it as well, i guess all trucks are constructed that way....

If you do end up replacing the whole unit you should be able to save a few bucks by doing it yourself. Pulling the trim pieces and unscrewing the window assembly is pretty straight-forward.

Consider getting a power rear window. I think it's about the same price.

I always wanted to install the power rear slider out of a 4Runner.
Toyota has it for the Tundra, Sequoia, and 4Runner, but not the Tacoma - what gives!

I haven't had the shop do everything for me. Seriously, pull the trim around the rear window and you'll see the screws that hold the window assembly in place. It's one of the easiest installs I've seen for a rear slider.

When I replaced the one on my father's old Mazda B2000 years ago that was actually a press-fit gasket. A bit trickier but still easy. These things are not designed to be difficult.

Yep. The idea was the keep as many of the conveniences that came with the truck as possible, and the rear slider was high on the list.

Both of those power sliders are the CR Laurence POWR models. I had one installed on my '06 Colorado before I got my Tacoma. Installed was about $600. I really liked it, but something to keep in mind is where the motor is mounted. I didn't even think about it until it was in the truck. It has like an armored cable that runs from the rear floor up the rear passenger side to the bottom of the window - in like a big "C" shape. The motor was mounted inside the passenger side tool/accessory box under the jump seat. In the Colorado it meant that the box could no longer be flipped up to allow full access to the floor. The jump seat still worked fine, but the passenger side floor could never form a full width flat surface. I know its kind of difficult to describe, but I would recommend that anyone check with their glass shop/installer to see how they handle the installation. The dash switch is kind of cheap too. It would look nicer wired to an OEM dash switch. Just my 2˘.

That would really be nice to have. I've had my truck for almost two months now and have yet to open the sliding rear window.
