cost of replacement

I checked the cost today and the dealer said around 1500 installed, 680 parts and 700 labor plus tax. my deductible for the insurance is 1000 so i may not claim it bc i dont want the premium to go up.
any thoughts that the extended aftermarket warranty may cover it due to a bad piece of glass?

Thanks for your help.

It's possible that the aftermarket warrantee company may claim that if truly defective, the flaw should have manifested itself some time sooner than 7+ years later.

I'm not taking sides, just preparing you for what "may" occur.

Did you happen to be passing by a 'grassy knoll' in Dallas about that time?
