Default Replace V70 Hatch glass DIY-able?

Had a big hail storm tonight and the rear glass got shattered on the V70 my daughter drives.

How hard is it to replace that glass? The car is probably not worth much more than paying someone to do it for me. Hate to put that much money into a car that might not live another year.....

Might be easier just to swap the whole hatch.

It's a royal pain, and supremely messy working to remove the butyl/bond residue from the old glass. I'd personally rather sit through a root canal than do that job.

You could look on the various Volvo FB Marketplaces for a t/gate, definitely easier to swap the whole thing

That's what I'm thinking. I just came back from the junkyard and they had an XC70 with a good hatch/glass. I guess I'm going to have a silver V70 with a blue hatch and Cross Country written across the back. lol

Could always scuff, mask and rattle can it while it's off the car. Will be a bit less obvious.

Silver & blue isn't a bad combo.. Get the hood as well & it will look deliberate
