Rear window replacement


Recommended Posts

Window claims often don't compromise no claims discount as it isn't going to cause them to consider you as a bad risk.

I'd say going with the window company your insurance has an arrangement with would be cheaper - unless you are capable of DIY fitting one from a breaker vehicle.

I've had a few windows done over the years by different company's through my excess on my insurance policies, although It technically hasn't affected my no claims, it is on my record as a claim. Not sure if the price rose as I usually don't hang onto cars very long.

Exactly what happened to me, was put down as a claim. They advertise it as not affecting no claims discount but always leave out that wee chestnut in the small print about it still affecting your premium.

Hi all, my rear window just smashed, is it an Autoglass job to get it replaced or is there a cheaper solution? Would prefer not to use insurance co? Cheers lads

what motor       if bonded   you could buy a screen off auction site  or local breakers yard  £ ?  some will fit for you       a tube of bonding agent + primer for about £15.00 or less    mastic gun from the shed  and about an hour of your time cleaning off adhesives on both surfaces with a blade  and a mate on the other side  when fitting     its not hard to do  plenty you tube videos  if not sure   

done many times   inc vintage vehicles with rubber seals  a piece of rope/wire in the groove and pull  its not difficult
