My daughter has just been bought a C3 by her Grand-dad, and whilst reversing on to our drive has knocked off the drivers side wing mirror, which also shattered the drivers side quarter window. We've got a replacement window from the salvagers.

How hard is it to fit?

Any tips on how to do it?

Thanks

You have the whole assembly, not just a bit of glass?

The quarter light assembly is riveted in place, the rivets are hidden behind the door rubbers. You have to remove the door glass to get the quarter light out. Its a bit of a work up for such a small bit of glass :(

The C3 Haynes Manual has detailed sections on replacing the glass, along with many other DIY type jobs, a worthy addition to the toolbox :)

Just have the glass, as the rest of it looks fine.

Looks like it will be going to the garage for someone with more skill than I have, to replace.
