I have a 2000 Camry Solar convetible, with a broken rear window.
No money right now to pay someone to replace the window, soI'm hoping I
can do a decent job myself, leaving the curtain in place and
pop-riviting a piece of Lexan where the glass used to be.
But becaue the window is a little curved, bent, when it's in place, it's
hard to draw a pattern from a friend's 2001 car (which looks the same as
Do you know anywhere I could get a pattern for the rear window?
Is the bottom edge of the glass a straight line? or does it bow? If
it bows, how much below the corners of the window would you say the
middle of the bow is?
On the 2000 and 2001, the window looks rectangular, unlike later years
when it's oval, with clearly rounded corners, not just the last inch,
like in 2000 and 2001, but so rounded that the top curve on one side
merges straight into the bottom curve on that side. And those windows
are bent too, because of the way they are held in place by the rear
window curtain. But even though it's less in 2000, I think it still has
an effect on the pattern, the shape of the window.
