    Default New Windscreen needed

    Windscreen got hit last night and I've now got a spreading crack in it. Car is insured with MoreThan and I'm not sure who they use for replacement windscreens (will no doubt be RAC or Autoglass)

    For anybody who's had a replacement screen fitted, is there anything I need to watch out for when getting a new screen (genuine OE glass, shade, wiper sensor etc)?

    Car is a 53 plate SRi Edition 100

    Thanks

    They do it off your VIN number so you should get the right one, I'd insist one an OE one, and get them to check the autolight/wiper functions before they remove it and also after they've fitted the new one.

    Hi Marc.

    I've had mine replaced twice by Autoglass. First time was when a
    pheasant tried to climb into the passenger seat. My only frustration was the time I had to wait, three days. The car could not be driven as the cracks went from oneside to the other.

    The second time was when some kids landed a brick on it.

    In both cases Autoglass replaced it with what I could tell was one made to the original specification, graduated tint at the top and provision for the rain sensor.

    Regards

    Nidge.

    Complete a vehicle damage check sheet before they start work and get a signed copy. Cbee on here had a little run in with Autoglass the other week although I think its all being sorted now.
