rear window replacement

Asked by Feb 26, 2011 at 10:05 PM about the 1997 BMW Z3 2.8 Roadster RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 97 bmw z3 .Twenty one thousand miles ,always garaged.Unfortunately,one cold day in Penn.,I took the roof down and the window cracked.Does anyone have experience in changing this window?It looks like a special tool may be required? I was told by my dealer,the roof must be removed,and the cost is out the window,no pun intended?
