Windscreen Xantia, source ?

Post by Stickyfinger » 06 Jul 2018, 14:08

Does anybody have a source for a new screen, I cannot seem to find anybody. (mine has lots of "little marks" making the low sun a bit of a pain)

I just tried Autoglass from the Reg in one of your pictures and I pretended there was a crack - which in non-repairable and after a few seconds of thinking, it confirmed a replacement was needed and identified as correct. So maybe worth contacting them:

Surprised if you can't get one via a standard windscreen repair place?

But if they really can't... Then this lot will make you one;

(but a one-off wouldn't be cheap)

Still none the wiser, I'm afraid.

Probably Ladaw.

That's the trade part of Autoglass (supplies Autoglass and others). They don't deal direct with retail customers.

Couple of weeks ago, struggled a little to find a new XM windscreen in Spain, on a supply-only (not fit) basis. Autoglass (=Carglass in Spain) had XM screens, but would only supply-and-fit.
Came across these folk:

who have partners all over the place.
The Spanish one (Relarsa) obtained the correctly tinted screen for the next day. Manufactured by NordGlass, in Poland.
