Passenger Window Replacement

HELP! A friend of mine chipped passenger front window with the seatbelt clip on my '19 Outback Limited 3.6R- don't ask how but the window is chipped and I want to replace the entire window with of course Subaru part. I just got the car 2 weeks ago and my dealer said that service on it has to be 100% perfect due to sound barrier and that he will look into if the service dept. there is 100%. In the meantime can anyone suggest places between Ventura, CA to San Fernando Valley, CA that does 110% (Subaru dealer preferred) and any other experiences / thoughts on this?
Signed- a very sad 1st. time Subie Owner.

Check “all-valley auto glass”.. Ray installs glass for me at the Mercedes dealer I work at and multiple dealers in the valley... really nice guy, honest, and good prices..

Google the first step, and what is the dealer talking about due to sound barrier window, glass is just pinch in by window channel and push up and down with window regulator. The dealer just want to make business on labor. It so easy to replace. If you are not a DYI guy call any moblle auto glass repair in your area. Sorry to hear to your brand new car it hurts I know because two days after I got mine some stupid driver put a ding on my passenger door. Thanks too dent puller from harbor freight I manage to pulled it out.

DIY Girl I'm def. not!!! So is it OK to have an auto glass place like Safelite or what the previous Subie person suggested (as long as it's an original part). So if it is an original part then of course it's built the same way how the car came??? And sorry to hear about your ding! And as mentioned previously, this is my very first Subaru of any kind and I want it perfect as possible for as long as possible and not from idiotic move from a friend throwing a hail marry with the seat belt!!!

Exactly, try to stay away from aftermarket glass.. there is sometimes noticeable difference between factory and aftermarket glass (distortion, waviness, color)... it will probably be unnoticeable at first, but in the right light you notice things like that..

She is 100% She is a true real friend- she claimed 110% responsibility and is not even arguing about it- in fact she just called me to ask me if I'm taking my car today and wanted to give money up front- I'm lucky to have a friend like her!!!

The 18-19 Outbacks have revised sound deadening which, I think, includes marginally thicker front side windows. Consistent with that, I see on parts.subaru.com that the front window part number is different for 15-17 vs 18-19. Just something to keep in mind if you're shopping for replacement glass, as either part probably fits your 19, but you'll want the one that's correct. Unsure if the windows channels might be wider, so the 15-17 glass might even be a loose fit in an 18-19 car.

That is correct. MY 2018-2019 front door windows are also laminated (for sound damping), and they are not interchangeable with their MY 2015-2017 counterparts.
