A quick intro before the info on the window.
October 12, Friday I loaded up my trailer and headed to the panhandle to provide hurricane relief in Panama Florida with a group out of Tampa called Compassion Kind who needed a trailer to haul all of their goods to the panama. While in Panama City Beach my vehicle locked itself with the keys inside and the vehicle running. After realizing it was not feasible to get a police officer to lend a Slim Jim or have him open the vehicle since they were doing search and rescue for survivors and also no pop a lock people were available I decided to break what I thought was the cheapest window on the vehicle the rear right quarter window (last window on the right side of the vehicle). After 10 smacks of a hammer in the middle of the window someone suggested hitting it in the lower corner, after doing so it finally shattered. We were able to unlock the vehicle by opening a back door at that point. So I taped it up with a piece of cardboard and duck tape and drove home.
October 16, The following Tuesday I contacted my local Porsche dealer only to find out that the part was $650 and would have to be shipped from Germany since they did not have it locally. I think called a few junk yards and found one here in Tampa (Partsmart) that had the part second hand and would sell it for $75. I bought it and proceeded to remove and replace the old window. At first I thought it was just going to be the glass but as it turns out the c pillar accent is part of it and it is also connected to the trim that goes around the top of all the windows. In order to remove the glass you have to loosen the inside panels all the way around. You have to completely remove the panels that are above the lower portion of the window. When removing these panels you have to be careful because some of them use clips and others use screws (a combination of torx and metric bolts).
