Default Car Broken Into = Broken Window: How to Replace

Alright. I got in yesterday night at about 4:30 AM from studying and between that time and 6PM the next day, somebody had broken into my car.

The window that needs to be replaced is the rear, passenger side door, small triangular window. Its not the window that moves up and down, but the other one in the door.

Has anybody replaced one before and if so, is it possible to do it yourself. I cant imagine it being that difficult, but please let me know if if is or isn't!!! Thanks for your help!!

The interior panel is removed, then the main window must be removed. Yeah, complex but not impossible. The manual is quite helpful here.

Once the main window is pulled, the frame holding the quaterlight window comes out and the replacement window can be installed.
