Re: Windscreen Replacement



Well my windscreen got done today, but not without some concerns. The PGI screen looks great, and has an integral sun strip. The fitter seemed to prefer the real rubber seals, for the flexibility, as opposed to the plastic genuine part ones. I received some instruction for the first 24 hours as its a wet sealing process, and needs to cure. Protector at lonsdale dont have card facilities, so it was cash ( with receipt). They claim to do account work for most of the main dealers in the area, so they must be fairly reputable. The job looks good, and there were no signs of mess.

My only concerns were the lack of card facilities and the small premises they operate from. The service however was good, so I left pretty confident I had a quality screen and installation. If you need a quality screen for an xtrail in the adelaide souther area, I would recommend them.

Re:


15km from home and the rear window in the tailgate shattered, and fell in. Still 8km of dirt to go, so of course everything got dusty, and I even got a couple tiny pebbles thru into the front!

Covered by insurance but waiting til Monday to see whether I have to go to Cairns, or only the Tableland, or whether their tech gets to do an excursion into the Outback.... emoticon

Not good Julie, I think its worse smashing the back screen as not only the dust, but all the emissions from the exhaust come into the cabin as well.

Re:


Taped up the remaining glass, closed the tailgate over an old sheet (tucked in everywhere) to stop glass blowing thru the interior, then taped some strong builders plastic over the back window (with 100 mile an hour tape). Set off back to Cairns yesterday morning for an 11am appointment at O'Briens. East side of Almaden sadly a kangaroo decided to jump my way - straight into the drivers rear view mirror, which promptly folded inwards.

Poor old kanga didn't make it. Amazingly not a dent or a scratch in the exy. The mirror glass fell out but didn't fall. I tried to click it in but couldn't. Called in at the Ford Dealer in Mareeba, and a guy from their service division kindly put it back for me. Got down to Cairns just before it rained.

Since I'd gotten so much dust in getting home when it was broken, and because I wanted to make sure all the glass had gone, I thought it time to treat the exy to a professional detailing. The only time the car's been empty enough to do it. Detailer Darren at the Cairns Carwash at Manunda did an excellent job for a very reasonable price.

Too late to drive home and stayed the night in Cairns. This morning driving around realised that the tailgate kept opening itself. Rang NRMA Insurance again, and they sent me to GF Busa Smash Repairs who fitted me in immediately (Wednesday 2 days before easter break) so I could drive home tonight.

The insurance assessor said he'd seen several exies where glass had become lodged in the locking mechanism of the tailgate, and needed to be removed manually.

Finally got myself back to Chillagoe with no further adventures, aside from rain, mud, 2 wild pigs, a dingo, horses, lots cows all over the road (live ones), and a very muddy pushbike removed from the rack when I got home....

Yeah right Julie emoticon I reckon I'd either be shopping for an army tank or a chopper to do my shopping because it's becoming an expensive exercise with horses chewing off bits of my car and wild life popping in to admire the rest emoticon

Glad you got the problem sorted and no further damage was caused by the kangaroo.

Re:


I had the strangest thing happen this afternoon...jumped in my Exy for the drive home from work. The outside temp was about 9 degrees. I used the windscreen washers to give the windsceen a bit of a clean, and about 10 seconds later...strange crackling noise!
Looked up to notice a long crask emanating from the very top centre of the windscreen, heading down through the wiper rain detector and further down from there.
There were no rocks, no traffic, no bumps, no nothing. Strangest thing I've ever seen.
Car happens to be going in for its 60000km service tomorrow but after reading what Nissan charges for windscreens I don't think I'll be getting it done there!
Thankfully I have a free windscreen in my car insurance policy so I guess it's off to O'Briens or similar.
I've never seen a windscreen crack like this. Really weird...but I suspect it was something to do with the temperature of the washer water on the cool glass.

Re:


I'd suggest that there was a small crack at the top already from a previous stone chip and the temperature change from putting water on it caused the crack to spread.
