Windscreen glass removal?

SLR No.77

Has anybody removed and refitted the windscreen glass? What's involved?


I am planning on having my polished surround powder coated black, but would prefer not to suffer the cost of a new unit.

Fairly straight forward.

One screw each side holds the bottom piece of the surround to the top/side. It then needs a good pull to 'break' the rubber seal holding the bottom onto the glass.

Having done this recently I can offer you a top tip - try and avoid placing the old screen on the floor and then stepping on it.

Holy thread resurrection Batman, etc etc. Given I've just cracked my screen trying to get the glass out... anyone any idea how I can remove the screws that hold the glass in place? I've just tried brute force with WD40 and that's what cracked it :D


How much is a new screenglass too.. or do NIG/MSM do screen replacement, the crack did start from a chip in it!
