    Default Can the rear windscreen be replaced like any other glass?

    Just had my rear screen put through, think it was by accident by the next door neighbours kids and there trick scooters but there blaming someone else. Anyhow, can the glass just be replaced by a normal firm like auto windscreens or is there more to it with the rear demister and all that?

    Think its just a bonded screen mate. Rear demister will just be a spade connector mate.

    Will be just the same buddy. Just double check the panel gaps afterwards as no side trims to cover there poor jobs like on a front screen. I fit screens at work as loads of mercedes customers would rather pay 800 quid for us to do it than the normal suspects as they know it's done with care not speed. Average screen fitter will take 60-90 mins we will take upto 4 hours as we use a different teqnique to remove the screen that won't damage the paint like they could do. Also be sure they put a rust primer on any bare metal they create when scraping off the old glue. I'd stand and watch them if I was you.
