take it to a real certified mechanic their is a special glue that they use so it doesn't leak

It already sounds like he's in over his head if he doesn't know the tools he needs, but they can be purchased at a local glass shop, special lube and sealer for the weatherstrip around the glass and framework, the install cord makes the job go a lot faster.Make sure he uses a new weatherstrip around the glass as the old one could be stretched or started to rot.
