Year and Trim: 2000 Bonneville SSEi
Hey all, well as the title says, the glass on my rear window randomly shattered several weeks back. It was sitting in my driveway and i have a camera on it or id never belive that story. So began my calls to get new glass installed. Initially I was going to go with a used one but couldnt find one close to me. All the salvage yards I called had crushed their pontiacs basically. Andrew with Bonnevilles Unlimited has some but thats several states away so shipping would be costly. I then decided Id suck it up and pay my insurance deductible of 250 amd get new glass. Called Safelite and they scheduled me only to call a week later and tell me they are having trouble locating new glass and it would be another 2 to 4 weeks before they would be able to locat3 one. I guess I never thought parts for a fairly common 2000 american car would be that hard to come by. The waiting game continues..

Unfortunately, rear glass probably isn't a common replacement item and stock will probably reflect this.

My 2008 STS windshield (with my options) was discontinued from GM long ago. There is no OE or aftermarket stock in Canada (through Vanfax) or the US (Safelite) - at least when I checked a few months ago.

I just can't wrap my head around why some of this stuff is so hard to get. I feel your pain!
