im not too sure, but my dad was takin out the window on an explorer at his shop and in that door there was a spring action metal bar for somthin or other and he cut his finger off when it snapped. Im not sure if hondas have that or not but just watch out. I dont think power tools will be needed.

i have one of those things that uses a portable air supply

with out tools though i would prolly pry it out but i dont know if i would pry around glass

just get one of those little air tanks and use the tool
they dont use much air

I'll try to help...

Here are some exploded views of these windshields:
front

another front

rear

The front has glue and plastic clips on the glue. You have to use something (screwdriver?) to pry off the clips and then take out the glass carefully. As far for the rear I don't know , maybe the pics will help.

im an autobody tech..... you won't get them out at the junkyard. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. Also even if you had a huge compressor and the right tools... (which yes they do use a lot of air to make them work correctly) I still wouldn't recommend ever getting a windshield from a junkyard cause you can't get all the urethane off the glass and will never get it to seal up correctly when re installing it. Which then leads to water damage and wind noise.

There are some tools you could use to cut out the windshield that are non powered . One is a tool called a long knife . It is used for cutting out the urethane along the bottom of the windshield from the interior of the vehicle . It looks like a long metal pipe with a blade at the end . You will also need some cut out wire . It is a triple strand wire that is used with a set of tight wire grips . The grips attatch to the wire at each end and this is used to cut through the urethane . This is what you would use to salvage a windshield that is not broken. Now if you were able to use a pneumatic or an electric cut out knife your mission would be a whole lot easier. But basically you can do it with non powered tools . The hardest part is cutting through the urethane , especialy if the car is old.I know alittle about this topic , i work for a company that makes and distributes automobile glass ,and we also sell the tools used for installation and extracting any auto mobile glass.
