The inner layer of the windshields are is usually made from a vinyl plastic component. In simple words, it is a very strong plastic. The laminate acts as a sticking board for the inner and outer layer of glass. This is the grounds of how safety glass is built.

Whenever feasible, it is always suggested to have a repair done on the existing windshield, getting rid of the need to change it.

My Car Power Window Won'T Roll Down!!! :(?
I Have An 2006 Mazda3 And I Was Pulling Up To Starbucks One Day And My Window Won'T Roll Down! It Won'T Even Budge Or Make Any Noise, Just The Driver Side Window Though. About How Much Does It Cost To Get This Fixed At Like A Local Car Mechanic Shop?

Sounds to me like the power window motor is dead. My advice, if you have little experience in automotive maintenance, would be to take it to a mechanic. If it is the motor, it's an easy fix; all the mechanic will need is a replacement motor, and then changing it out is pretty easy.

You can also try and source your own motor, just to save on costs with replacement. You should be able to find the parts at the wreckers fairly easily. =]

Window Motor, Regulator, And Auto Lock Mechanism Repair Quotes?
I Have A 2000 Cadillac Deville With A Faulty Window Motor And Lock Mechanism On The Drivers Front Door. The Motor Is Partially Apart Inside The Door With The Cables Just Hanging Out So I'M Pretty Sure Its Gonna Need Replaced. I Tried To Figure It Out Too Much Of A Pain What Kind Of Prices Cant I Expect From A Mechanic To Replace These Two Items And Get My Car Going Again Where I Need It? How Many Hours Of Labor Is This You Think?

It should cost about $350 to repair the door window and lock mechanisms. But I would first contact different local independent shops using the locator below to see which one would accept a repair that was "in progress" (partially dissassembled) The motor itself is $70 wholesale and labor is generally twice the cost of parts. But your paying for a shop that knows what they're doing and can Warranty the repairs.

How Much Would It Cost To Buy And Install A New Windshield?
I Have An 02 Dodge Neon. I Also Have A Small Hole On The Corner Of The Roof. How Much Would It Cost To Fix That As Well? I Dont Think It Needs A New Roof. Maybe Bondo?

It depends on what features your windshield has such as rain sensor etc and where you are located. You can do a search online to find a local glass shop to fix your windshield. Do a Google search for "windshield prices,"but as far as the roof I don't have a good answer for you. I just looked at Glass.net and they quote a neon windshield at around $230.
