Wanted: Driver's Window, Bronze tint

Post by JimW » Sat Jul 20, 2019 1:59 pm

If no-one on this forum has one for sale, does anyone have any suggestions on where I might try?

MPN is 95560675. Year is 1988 (early), although I doubt that matters much.

Thanks,
Jim.

Hi Jim

The earlier cars were bronze and after 1989 they all went to a green tint.

The place to try is chevronics and if he doesn't there is Alan Goodyear's BX graveyard in Whitlesey

Thanks Tim,
As it happens I've already tried Chevronics, who have a clear one - which I'll probably go for, as I can then at least get the car back on the road.

Will give Alan Goodyear a call in the morning - appreciate the pointer, I don't think I knew about them.

I had a later (K reg - early '93 if I remember correctly) 19GTi as a company car. I do, however, clearly remember it having green tinted glass - but I assumed that this was because the body was white.

Do you think all the later GTis - even the Red ones - had green tinted glass?

Jim.

The window tints was the same on all colours but changed on trim level and year, most early cars were clear with a bronze tint available as an option, then from 89/90 they went to green until end of production I think. By the end of production most cars has tinted windows asides the E/TE models.

I might have one on the DTR breaker, but I'd need to double check.

Update:

Not long after my last reply, I got a clear window - from Chevronics - and fitted that. Took ages to clean up all the broken glass!

So at least it's back on the road and my need for a bronze window is no longer quite as urgent.

Kitch & rutter123 - thanks for replying, would you mind checking whether yours are bronze? Tint code (at least on my 2 original windows) is 43R 000929.

However these tint codes are a bit of a nightmare. On the remaining 5 pieces of door glass - all of which seem to be bronze - there are 4 different codes!

So does anyone have a definitive list of tint codes that they could share with me?

Thanks again,
Jim.
