I needed to vent. Someone broke into my Vanagon last night. They broke the passenger vent window and rolled down the window.. Nothing got stolen though. But now I found out my insurance doesn't cover it. Ugh. I'll have to order the window and check if I can reuse the same parts and do it myself to save some money.Anyone have a guide to replacing these and/or tips?

If it's just the glass it is relatively easy to replace it. The frame shouldn't be damaged, but if it is then it a bit more then an easy replacement.
All is fixable!

I recently installed the Van Tracker.

While it won't prevent the broken window, it will notify you that someone just entered your Van giving you a chance to do something about it.
