Focus mk2 windscreen removal

Recommended Posts

Hi

I had a look at removing a focus mk2 windscreen today. Could do with a little advise before I continue though. I have got the wire to cut through the adhesive. Do you need to take the trim on the edge of the screen out first.i tried to do this, but it kept breaking off. Not sure if it should come out with the screen, or to take it out first. I' assuming a new screen doesn' come with the trim on it. Just wondered if anyone had any experience in this area. I would be great full of anyone' input.

‘Trim on the edge of the screen’?

A window fitter (autoglass) will cut around the sides and top of the screen to remove the excess rubber, remove the scuttle at the bottom of the windscreen, then feed the wire through from the inside to the outside, then using his ‘machine’ proceed to cut through the adhesive to remove the screen. The new screen basically comes complete, they just add adhesive and stick it into the ‘frame’, reconnect the connectors for the heated elements then refit the scuttle panel. (I’ve had two new screens in my Focus in the last 2 years!)
