The tool you need to replace windshields

I have a windshield seal cutter and trim tools but for $175 installed -YG China tinted top, WTH

Installer took off trim first, then took out the coolest tool I seen in a loooong time.

Maybe 1 minute to remove the windshield.

It's basically a "sawzall" with a spatula with a slight bent 10/15 degrees where the wide part starts

Use soapy spray bottle for lube and keep sealant from sticking back together.

I do have a Firestorm 24v "sawzall" that will work for junkyards.

Buy a 110v "sawzall type" at Harbor freight on sale $19.95 2 thriftstore spatulas $2.

He said they go for $450 and worth every penny.

I am die-hard DIY, but I put a limit on windshield replacement.
For my Ford $120 bought me new windshield installed on my driveway. Got a quote for MB with rain sensor about $260, again installed on my driveway.
End of the story.
