1st off the screen is bonded in, thats your 1st problem as you need to cut it out, then it goes in from outside the car.. with screen bonder or tiger seal, not just sealant !!

Just pay the extra to get it fitted, then you have a guarantee if it leaks. Iirc they fit a new windscreen for 70 ish round here.

There a nightmare to fit, easy to crack & the tiger seal gets everywhere if your not carefull

The Old Screen Took 2Minits To Kick Out But The Cleanin Of The Surround Took The Longest Poped Straight In Seemed To Easy Really :lol:

Looks good.

Now for the leak test?  :lol:

Should be ok if you used plenty of sealant.

Ended Up With 2 or 3 Cuts Was a Prity Good Result :D
It Rained LastNight For a Bit And Its Raining a Bit Now But Nothink That Will Put The Sealing To The Test Yet
Might Have To Run The HosePipe Over It For a Bit tomorrow

If There Is Any Leaks ill Just Pull The Seal Back And Stick a Bit Of Sealent Round But Should Be Alrite The Fitting Was Prity Simple
