My Rear window smashed and robbed! :(

Yesterday morning, i went to the park early around 9:30am. Parked my car up to come back to a smashed window and stuff taken from the boot.

(see attached photo)

the same day i had the rear window replaced through my insurance and paid a 65 excess.

I have noticed its not as level as it was before, the bottom left of the window is more raised then the bottom right side of the window, not much but i can notice it.

Theres a few scratches under the window in the gap between the glass and body.

Can the rear window be popped out? i can then get the scratches touched up and then get the same rear window put back on? can this be done with it being tinted? as i want to get it re tinted tomorrow.

sucks balls.

i would take it back to the installer and show them the problem. It's between them and your insurance i think. Not sure how insurance is situated in the UK.

i would take it to them before i tinted it lest they say it was that process that caused the window to slip or something.
by the time you've read this, I'd have already done.....this > Mostly stock, APR stage 1 2.4 file, Stoptech rotors, GFB DV

Get the company that done the Windscreen to come out and re-do it if it's not sitting properly.
