I'm no help, I can only say that I got a full windshield replacement from SafeLight for my 99 Lexus back in late 200x and the damn thing had a low spot in it. I cursed that thing every time it rained.......

The Windshield should be available from any of the vendors. The Back Glass may not be re-produced. Ask when calling about the Windshield. Also check your local Auto Glass Shop. The expense with Windshields many times is the shipping cost. A local shop may not charge one.

Wasn't it guaranteed?

I don't remember a guarantee but maybe there was one?
I do remember that we didn't have a drop of rain for over 30 days after that replacement so I did assume the worst.
I have a history of bad luck in that regard.

The Windshield I had installed in my truck was guaranteed for life.

But they are not in business anymore !!

If your 60 is a long roof, I have a rear window for it up here in Michigan.

If you need one for your Sedan, I may be able to produce one. You would have to pick it up here in SW Virginia though.

I have discovered after breaking a few that it is much cheaper and a whole lot easier calling your local glass company and having them remove and replace the glass. They can also take it away to polish it up like new, to remove the micro scratches that leaves a haze in the glass. This way you retain the date codes in the glass if that is important to you, and you won't be responsible if it breaks.
