Reasonable cost to replace a smashed-in window

Hey All,
Woke to rude awakening recently as I walked to my parked RSX recently. Passenger window completely smashed in overnight. Worthless property
on floor behind passeneger seat stolen. Since car's fairly new, still would rather have dealership fix it. Originally the estimate to replace window was (ball parked here) around $600 overall.
Then, I gotta call a day later saying that "rotors" or "rollers" were bent and needed replacement too. I don't remember which was uttered being that I was in kind of a shock over the additional cost. Now the price to fix is up to around (again ball parked), $850-$900.
Mechanic says fallen glass could have been the culprit that "bent" them, but he couldn't say for sure. I can say for sure that the glass was completely gone, and I didn't touch the motor to run window up or down. The vertical plastic strip above the door handle was pried up some, but didn't look all that violently compromised.
My question is this: is something "bent" within the door possible here? Or is the dealership just trying to jack up the cost here? I'm admittedly not super knowledgable on the subject, but from the evidence I could see, these losers grabbed the first thing they saw and dashed since likely the alarm went off. There was likely not much else likely touched.
I really like this dealership, and it would kill me to think they're being opportunistic here.
Anybody have a clue?

Excellent decision.

They shouldn't have given you ANY kind of ballpark. That was foolish and dangerous for them, and you can now see why.

You'd be amazed. It takes some force to break a window. How many times did the thief have to strike it before it broke?

Absolutely. Especially if the thief tried to pry the door/window before attempting a window smash. Most thieves aren't trained by the AAA on how to cleanly get into a locked car. Besides, if they were of normal intelligence, they wouldn't be breaking into cars in the first place.

Just the "getting in" part is what ran up that big bill here, not what they took afterwards.
Be thankful they were stupid amateurs. Smarter crooks would have gone for your ECM and airbags, which are worth a lot of dough to them. In that case the repair bill would have easily run to several thousand dollars.

Sorry for your loss. You didn't have fire and theft on your car?
The price is reasonable. When something like this happens, you'd be amazed at the collateral damage that can occur. Much of it you won't see until you have stuff apart, or try to fit new parts to old ones that appear undamaged at first glance.

Actually,if you use the tip of a spark plug or a spring-loaded center punch,the side windows shatter very easily.That's the latest technique on the street,BTW. what complicates things is if the window has plastic tinting applied to it;it acts like laminated safety glass,very tough.Then they have to pry out the broken window to get in. That happened to one of my neighbors,I found the side window lying on the ground,shattered but still all in "one piece".
The cost to replace the broken side window on my 94 Integra was $250,4 years ago,but Florida requires glass coverage I believe,and my auto insurance covered it completely.A mobile van came out and did the job in the parking lot.
Lesson is that you cannot keep ANY item of value in sight in your car,....without a guard dog to protect it.

$900 to replace a side window? Nah. Your car is fairly new...still have a loan? Contact your insurance company to see what they cover.
