Graduated tint on T31 front windscreen


Hi forum peoples, we have a T31 Xtrail bought new in 2013. When we got it we had numerous extras added, one being maximum legal tint to all glass. It was delivered with a graduated tint across the top of the front windscreen. Graduated as it started solid along the edge of the roof and then faded out by the time it got down to the bottom of the rear view mirror, not a solid bar of tint (does that make sense?).
Then we got a cracked screen and I paid to have an OEM screen fitted which did not have this tint. Now we have another cracked screen and we want to get the tinted one back.
Does anyone know the story with these screens? ealer says there's only one version (no tint) but ours originally had it.Was it an add on? Or did the factory make it like that? The car is a black TL if that makes a difference... Cheers

Re: Graduated tint on T31 front windscreen


I bought an ST back in 2013 and like yours, it has the factory tint across the top of the screen.
However, when I had the other windows tinted I got the guys to add a strip across the top, over the factory tint. I checked with ACT rego first and they advised me that I was allowed to tint, as long as the tint material did not extend further than 10% of the depth of the windscreen.
Easy way out would be to check your States' rego laws and have one of the tint companies fit a band across the top.

Thanks for the reply, it's good to know that they did come out like that originally. I don't really want a heavy black line across the top though, hence why I'm trying to find an original graduated tint replacement.

This is not a "heavy black line across the top". It's the same tint as on your side windows.

Fair enough thanks mate. But you started off with the factory supplied glass that had the graduated tint across the top, yes? That's what my car originally came with and that's what I'm trying to source now, if possible. Cheers.

Re: Graduated tint on T31 front windscreen


2 years ago I had a cracked windscreen replaced by O'Brien Glass. They came to my house to do the replacement. Luckily my Car Insurance policy allowed 1 free replacement per year.
I enquired about what you call the "gradulated" tint but the installer said they don't provide OEM unless specifically requested but that would incur a cost to me. The replaced screen looks exactly like the damaged screen so all was good.
No further problems to date...cheers all

I recently had a windscreen replaced by O'Briens and it came with a tint across the top even though my T30 did not originally have a tint on it, so I think all windscreens they supply now must have the tint added. Just give them a call to ask.
