Then you will have to pay the likes of Autoglass to order one in for you which will be expensive! I would get one from a high spec Sierra which you could probably find in local breakers as exactly the same! If you get stuck let me know as sure I could help.

u will have to really know what u are doing to cut one out of an old car i worked for auto glass for 7 years back in the day lol i dont any more its not that hard if u know what u are doing and have the right tools but if u havent done it before u will crack it even more so if the screen u are cutting out has been done before and who ever did it used to much glue and pushed the screen down to far! even when i worked in the trade and that was about 6 years ago now a heated sierra screen was about 170 so not cheap!

If you did get stuck scrappy I know has a few Sierras, last time I went for myself there was a Ghia there but unfortunatly the windscreen was smashed on this one but sure there are others else where.

Very easy to get new, I don't know what people you know, but do know that some people will fit the screen and "accidentally" write the wrong details down from another insurance/car, they really should be more careful!!
When I enquired late last year it was £130 cash fitted, and the co I use can normally kill all the excess, though due to glass limit on my policy I did have to pay £10 towards a tinted with top tint heated.
Only advice I can give is shop around a lot, they only need the slightest little ding in them, when taking out s/h ones to crack, but your choice.

I would not remove it myself, but would try to get "off the shelf item" its a off the shelf business as well but you can remove parts yourself if wanted to as I always do.

Ideally as with anything you would brand new but I know for this it will be expensive and you still need to add the fitters bill as well.

If you can get one for £130 then that sounds very reasonable to me fitted as well!

go round the back of autoglass or any company wear u live and ask a fitter how much he will do it for off his own back or ask a local body shop who they use for glass but like i say the screen on its own was 170 about 6 years ago and id be very suprised if another company can get the glass cheaper than autoglass as they own most of laddaws which suppleys most of the glass other than rac auto windscreens as they make there own glass
