I need a replacement windshield so I'm checking out installers and getting quotes.
2018 Subaru Outback, green tint / blue shade band, heated wiper park, NO Eyesight.
I want to make sure I get the right thing, so I'm checking the part numbers (SKUs). I've pretty-much decided to go with Pilkington. I believe the SKU for the Pilkington windshield is:
FW03919 GBY PLK
Safelite quoted me on the FW03919 GBY XYG which I believe is from XinYi Glass. I think the PGW code is FW03919 GBY PGW (rumor is that PGW is sourcing from XYG, so if this is true then the PGW and XYG would be the same anyway).
One place quoted me for the FW03919 GTY which I believe is the green tint only (no shade band), even though I told them I wanted the shade band (like the OE).
Can anyone confirm FW03919 GBY PLK is the right SKU? I want to confirm this with the installers to make sure I get the right one.
If you have to worry about them putting in the right part then you’re going to the wrong place. Just saying. But if you’re looking for the lowest price good on you. You’ll get what you deserve. Or pay for.
