I have no idea, I think it may even cost more than getting a new one as the entire window would have to be removed and then pryed apart and rebuilt.

Has anyone checked the dealer to see if there is a service notice in reference to the problem? Also, before spending wads of money, go to a salvage yard [like PGAUTOS.COM in Frederick MD and get a spare window. LIGHTLY seal it with silicone and replace the original. That would be the overall cheapest option and should work well. Place glass to be sealed in tight room with dehumidifier for a day first to insure no moisture.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Hehe, you could throw a stone at it and get insurance to pay. J/K

I do know that double-pane house windows develop a mold inside once the window is compromised; the mold can actually etch the inside surfaces of the glass, making "cleaning" pointless. I'm sorry in advance to bring this up, because I don't want to think about what replacement costs.

Just like a house window it is sealed and filled with argon gas.
The seal has been broken and you now have "Air" with moisture
in it, inside the two panes. A window shop may be able to fix it
but I don't think so as they don't fix house windows as a rule.

Haha! Well you know if you want to strech it out over 6 months or so I bet your car could get broken into or vandelised by some scumbag, yea I saw him running that way. He looked (insert racial stereotype) depending on area, time of day etc.
