    The bigger issue will be whether or not they have glass to replace it yet

    Windows will likely not be replaced by the dealer anyway, they will almost certainly contract with a local glass installer.

    I'm no expert, but that looks like a classic install mistake. If the glass is torqued while it's "setting" it puts a low level but constant stress on the whole piece. Heating and cooling will quickly cause a stress fracture.

    It's a warranty issue for sure.
