Hi all,

I have recently had my windscreen crack quite badly and I am looking to get a heated front screen to replace it. My car currently does not have a heated front screen and I had it crack 2 years ago, went through the insurance and they replaced it with another non-heated screen. The excess to have it replaced again is £75 so figured if I can get a heated screen at a pretty reasonable price that it would be better value.

The plug behind the switch for the heated front screen is there, we are looking to see if the relays are there and other wiring. Has anyone on here ever put a heated front screen on to a car wihtout before and can give me any tips?

And could I ask if anyone has any recommendations on places to get hold of a heated front screen. My cheapest quote so far has been £120 and my neighbour, who works for a windscreen company, can fit it for me.

If anyone can help please let me know on here or email: itz_me_rachel_101@yahoo.co.uk

Thanks,

Rachel

This is now sorted. My dad spent nearly 3 hours at the scrap yard getting the windscreen out of an escort ghia. My neighbour then fitted it and my dad spent another few hours working out where all the wires went and what they were for. Once he had figured them all out, he chopped up the wiring loom we got and made it fit in to my car. I now have a heated front screen and heated washer jets that all work perfectly :-)
