Plastic Rear Window

I have a 2001 s2000...Was just wondering if there is a way to change out the plastic rear window to a glass rear window. Cause my plastic window is getting very "foggy" and sometime is is very hard to see out my rear view mirror. And if possible how do you guys think is a worthy price to pay someone to do it....

Hi guys. There's a very similar thread down the main page a bit that I already chimed in on. 'Hope nobody minds a copy n' paste.
Be well.

Gratefully, I haven't had to do anything with the top on my Stewie (mine's an '04 with the glass) but on my daughter's Miata, a local top shop installed a new plastic window with some gizmo that double-row stitched the window in place while the top was still on the car.
Now, while I realize that the Miata ain't Stewie, there shouldn't be alodda difference in the attachment of the plastic window to the top.
One thing though: if the window's bein' replaced because of agin' (read: yellow/browning/opaqueness) the time for the top's replacement probably ain't long off. Do 'em both. Don't waste money on a new window if you're soon gonna be replacin' the whole kit-n'-caboodle anyway.
Be well.

I was just answering this on S2Ki:

"There are two TSBs. 00-037 is for proper window care. 00-048 is for rear window replacement. "
From the TSB section of this site:

A write up on how to replace the top is here:
