So I was out to dinner tonight and when I came back to my car someone had broken the rear quarter window.
Insurance will cover but what is the best way to get the window replaced? I have a local body shop that is great but would it be better to have the dealer replace the window? I’m pretty sure they don’t have their own body shop.
It’s a 2017 EX-L.

Dealers don’t usually do windows or body work. They focus on mechanical work. They usually bring in outside vendors for window replacement or send it to a body shop.

If it's just the glass that is damaged, then any glass shop is the best.

If there's damage to the frame / body, then a collision repair shop (they will have the glass shop repair the glass)

Dealers will usually out-source body / glass work.

Get in touch with a mobile glass company. Body shops normally sublet urethane installed glass panels to glass vendors since they can be a hassle.

Also...if it's a glass only claim most insurers will get you through to whichever vendor they use to get it done for you. Safelight is one of the more heavily used ones.
