I'm a certified automotive glass technician for SafeLite, and I can answer this question for you. We do not replace the sliding insert of an electric slider, whether the mechanical linkage has failed or if the glass shatters. The entire rear glass would have to be replaced. This is due to how the framing of the window is built rendering a sectional replacement useless. I can tell you from experience, that the removal process for this window is not fun, and for as far as safety measures go, this isn't something you should tackle yourself. And no, I'm not here trying to make business for the corporation, but make sure you take it to someone reputable. And if I were you, I'd spend the extra money on an OEM Carlite glass product. They always fit right the first time. I've seen way too many aftermarket rear sliders that fit like crap and end up being warranty issues for us. I hope this helps.
