Hello Carl,

So did you follow earlier advice and get the rear screen heating element tested for continuity of the element, and it was found to be at fault? 

If so, whoever has diagnosed this problem, should be able to give you a fair idea of where the break is. Certainly with the older types, the element was inside-surface mounted, and was susceptible to damage if say something was loaded into the car and the hatch closed against it. Current technology with these things ?? - but may still be the same. If so, you used to be able to paint on repair solution to bridge the break. 

Could you come back to us once you’ve got some more information? 

Kind regards, 

Gareth.

Hi yes there is to much damage so having window replaced as more practical option.would have needed 3/4 kits auto windscreen have done it for £244 inc vat for the rear window thats tinted.

Sorry Carl, it’s probably me, but I’m not at all sure what you are saying/meaning about ‘having widow replaced .......can’t supply window as it’s damaged...but can pay an additional cost....’

Hi they gave me a price but then txt to say the initial supplier had the window but was damaged and didnt know when they would have any more. The new supplier had one but at the additional cost
