Windscreen corrosion

Post by Hurricane » Wed Nov 14, 2018 7:34 pm

Just a quick question, have noticed some corrosion under the front windscreen on both sides all the way down under the seals and it doesn't look very nice, can this sort of thing be fixed easily enough? Anyone have any advice thanks

Yes, once you take the windscreen out (probably breaking it), repair it and put a new one in. Very doable though

It's not too bad to do (when compared with under the washer bottles or something), but get on it sooner rather than later, as it can escalate quickly.
