Windscreen Replacement Mk 2


Recommended Posts

Anyone like to give me some advice on the good the bad and the ugly in the world of windscreen replacement. I've never had a bonded screen replaced and it looks to be a non-trivial task on a GS mk 2.

Cheers.

if it's not done right it can leak or produce wind noise. The car shouldn't be driven until the screen has fully bonded. I believe there are also a few little clips etc. that are replaced along with the screen. Most places should be able to do it though.

My local Lexus dealer don't fit them themselves, they take the vehicles to a specialist down the road.

Make sure the paint doesn't get chipped or you'll get rust bubbles working their way under (was the case on my Mk.1)

Bonded windscreens contribute to the structural integrity and stiffness of the car. You may not believe it, but if the windscreen is not fitted correctly it will effect road handling and crash safety.

:driving: I had mine replaced about 4 weeks ago,by autowindscreen,they came to my place of work on the friday about 11.00 drove home at about 4 ish,noticed on the following day that the windscreen had sunk on the passinger side,so rang them ,arranged for the following friday,the problem in the first place was that there was supposed to be a thin rubber type strip around the inside of glass,that the glass rests on,but on the first screen it was missing, so the second one fitted purfect with no problem,all it cost me was the 60 excess.for two screens,lol
