Windshield Replacement

Glass runs about $200 and the gasket will be somewhere north of $100. Volvo dealers usually have pretty competitive prices on the glass.  I was only able to source the gasket at the Volvo dealer in my local area.  I changed the gasket for my well being  and I probably had some more life left in the old one.  Cali sun loves to eat up rubber pieces!

The gasket is a Volvo only item.  They will set the price for it. 

$200-250 installed is a reasonable range to install a new windshield in your truck.  Installing a new gasket in a Volvo is no more labor than reusin the original gasket. 

 

In in most places the dealer does not install glass.  They contract with a local glass shop to do this specialized labor.  Going direct to the glass shop will save you some money.  Buying glass from the dealer versus the same glass from an independent shop is throwing away your money.

1998 VNL610 - What's the cost?  Has anyone had one replaced lately?  Chances are this will be done at Volvo in Bismarck.  

Does the gasket need to be replaced?  I figure at 19 years old it might be worthwhile.  Thoughts?

Hi Jim,

On my first truck (Gen 1) I had the windshield replaced and also the windshield gasket replaced with a Gen 2 gasket. I don't remember the cost. The glass shop had to get the gasket from the dealer. The glass shop that I went to also does the work at the local Volvo dealer in my area. The reason for going with a Gen 2 gasket over the Gen 1 was to get away from the extra plastic pieces that go on the sides of the windshield. Hopefully the glass shop will clean-up all of the old gasket. It would be nice to see painted steel where the gasket goes to make the best seal as possible.

Good luck,
Al

Well I hope you guys are happy, you cost me $185 dollars today! And what do I have to show for it? No chips, scratches, or any other blemishes. I was going to have four chips repaired this week then I read this post. They weren't here 45 minutes and I called them yesterday to get the cost. Thank you

It took Jakes Auto Glass about that long.  They just push it out, clean the seal, wrap the rope around it and push it in.....
