Yea, you can fit a second hand one as long it is in good nick. Best to fit a new rubber though & when you are putting screen in, drop top of screen in first.

Not sure whos doin the glass but my mate martin at nidor bodyworks dawkins rd hamworthy is sortin it for me,doubt its a genuine vw jobbie but who cares its brand new without chips thats all that matters.

Yeah cost 130 with a brand new rubber and tip. Plus it finally fixed the leak I have had for the last year and hadn't been able to trace. Would recommend these guysT:

Whenever I buy a new vehicle the first thing I do is replace the windscreen on the insurance...paying the 75 excess..it used to be 50...I just tell them it's chipped and scratched and in my opinion its dangerous at night....they never quibble, just tell me to get it fixed at one of their approved dealers...it's so nice having a new screen...LOL:
