    Sounds likely, if there was a tiny chip/crack and the rested against it to reach across the window for cleaning then yup, could have happened.

    What a p!sser, they wont have public liability insurance or anything like that I doubt. Will be about £75 excess for a new one through your insurance company.

    Sorry to hear about it.

    Having mine done as we speak (so to speak).. Got an upgrade out of it, which makes paying the excess worth while.

    I retro fitted the auto dimming mirror, so told them I had rain sensing wipers..

    When the guy turned up it also had the sun visor..

    Will probably have a go at retro fitting the rain sensors at some point now.

    My original screen cracked right below the tax disc, and it was probably the guys cleaning it at fault. if you lift the wiper on that side and fold it back you'll see the end points right to the tax disc. have a close look and you'll probably see a tiny chip.
