Hmmm. I'm not sure about how anything model specific, but here's some pointers I've learned from installng/removing glass from my truck with my dad.

1) Do it with two people, it's infinitely easier.

2) get a pair of large suction cups with the little lever for the release. Mosten the contact surface and press onto the windshield.

3) you'll probably need a windshield removal tool. It's basically a razor knife that has a blade bent at a 90* angle to get behind the windshield. Alternatively, there's this thin metal cable that you pull back and forth to remove the glass.

4) after you get the glass out, make sure you get all the old glue off. This is key to not having the new windshield leak. Leaving the old glue on will cause the glass to not sit right in the hole. It's also the most difficult part of the job, because that stuff is HARD.

5) Use only windshield sealant. It comes in a caulking tube. Don't be cheap with it either.

6) Don't use the car for a couple of hours after you put the glass in, and don't wash it until the next day.
