My 93 TXD's screen has just cracked, but I'm going to get a new screen fitted, as it's up for sale.

The problem with second hand is, if the black parts have started to go white it means the glass is starting to de laminate, then it;s only a matter of time before it cracks :(

They're $628AUD from one of the major glass retailers down here, so I successfully salvaged one from our wreck for the 16Valve's roadworthy certificate.

Unfortunately it wasn't an original St Gobain glass like the broken one in the Valver.

i would like an OE screen, but i aint/cant pay the £100 quid the guy on here is asking from that pile of OE spares he is trying to sell,

Andy they use a heavy duty cheese wire to cut out bonded screens, but its hit and miss getting one out in one piece,

also i think it is a green tint in myTZD which i would like to keep the same (dont want much do he :roll: :lol: :wink:

Who's selling the screen for £100? Mine could do with replacement - it's a bit chipped (although legal) and there's a spot of rust under the seam in one corner. Unfortunately I don't have windscreen cover on the insurance, and I assume even if I did it wouldn't cover me whilst the screen still passes MOTs.

So buying one for £100 and getting it fitted may well work out cheaper than a supply and fit job.

Mat
it was NTShawofLouth offering the screen part No. 95653182 so i pm'ed him to ask for a price, which in fact he told me £90 and it is a vert (green tint ) going by the No. on service citroen,

after you saying you might buy it i rang a local to me indipendant windscreen company for a quote, which is £90 including fitting,

i also asked how much he would charge if i supplied a new the screen, which he said would be £40 quid,


he also says his supliers normaly only supplys Sekurit or Pilckington screens,

I had a new one fitted to the valver a few years ago, it was old stock sitting around AutoWindscreens warehouse, cost £70 fitted. Just ring around and be sure to tell them it's not an insurance job otherwise it'll be £400+
I have zero patience for your tedium.

That's interesting - whenever I've had a windscreen fitted I haven't said anything about insurance and been charged £2-300. I just assumed the BX would be no different but perhaps I've been ripped off by not telling them it was coming out of my own pocket!

This is why UK insurance prices are so expensive. Companies bump up the price 100% when they know an insurance company is picking up the tab. Ggrrrr :x

Hi Malcolm, I STILL have one available but the glass is just the clear type :(

Please send me a PM for more details, I don't think its wise to send this by Courier though for obvious reasons :lol:

At that price, I'm very tempted to get mine done - it's well worn and chipped at 170k miles. Got contact details for that company? I'll be down that way in the next couple of weeks anyway.
