    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 05

    Default Officially pi$$ed off!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just got back in from doing the "friday big shop" and on the way there i heard a "click" followed by a nice long Z shaped crack from the middle of the A pillar towards the middle of the drivers side on the windscreen

    There is no mark anywhere that i can see so i think it must be down to the fact it is bonded to the frame. As i went round the roundabout at the end of the by-pass the camber changes and then it went

    Mighty pi$$ed off as i've heard horror stories of windscreens being replaced badly and the auto wipers, lights etc not working correctly afterwards.

    Anybody had their's replaced without any problems

    Ouch.

    It happened to me I found a tiny tiny stone chip 2mm from the edge on the black strips...That was the cause.

    Autoglass in Saltney did mine but I have no auto lights etc so can't advise any more mate!

    It'll be fine mate.

    Had to have 4 new screens in mine now, only once did I have to rebuild the interior myself as the cover for the rain sensor fell off, but it all worked fine afterwards.

    Oh Bu99er! I had two on my last vec ... second one a month after the first ... both times was a stone on the motorway I had no problems with either other than a slight intermittent rattle on the second one ... I think it wasn't properly bonded perhaps. They were both replaced by Autoglass and both cost me £60 under my glass excess which BTW doesn't affect no claims.
