Hi I've tried to access the link and I'm afraid I can't open it,,,,,I have the same problem with my newly acquired C5 estate and believe it to be a fault in the rear screen.
Do you know of any repair that can be done to the rear screen element?

Many thanks
Bud

The link does work for me.

The repair is a wire which runs around the the glass to replace the broken element in the rear screen. I dont think there is an effective repair for the screen itself, its a new window if you want a proper job.

The repair does work well though and you can't notice if its done well unless your lookinf for it.

Just tried that again and while it doesn't work in Firefox (on Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn) it does work with Chromium.
