My 1995 4 door Civic was broken into and the thief busted my front passenger side window. I've been looking up repair quotes and they run between $250-150. Is it easy enough to replace the window myself if I can get one from a junk yard? We've changed the radiator, speedometer, and dash ourselves so we are not total novices. If so how do I go about doing this and is there a web site with instructions, perferably with photos, that will help?
