New Screen replacement

Post by BBZ149 » Mon 02 Jul, 2018 15:34

I have a cracked screen that Insurance will replace. As far as I know these are bonded screens? Also does anybody know if they will need to order new Gutter strips or any other parts? or are all the other parts reusable?

I was contacted buy National Windscreens to say the required Gutter strips were no longer available, but I can see they are still showing on REALOEM! They said that they might not be able to install the new screen if they are needed :head:

Hi Terry,
Paul purchased 2 a pillar trims the last year due to his going brittle
Part numbers 51312291179, 51312290749 /50 are the metal and rubber surround.
You will also need the plastic retaining brackets that are placed in the window mastic. Part no 51318177850


Items 5 and 6 are called gutter trims fit into the coloured aplillar trim that the door glass slides in.

I have a spare windscreen..


Best wishes

Ivor

How did it happen and anything we can do to prevent it?

Yeah, just don't drive the Z1 :lol: Partly my fault! I had a Stone chip really low down for Years, you cant really see it from inside the Car. I attached my Sat-Nav just above it :head: When I removed the Sat-Nav it was fine till the next day. The heat from driving back from Reading and the fact I unknowingly installed the Sat-Nav above it didn't help! Moral of the Story, repair any Stone chips straight away!! :oops:

New Screen was fitted on Tuesday along with complete set of new Trims. Just as well I got them to also order a complete new set of Trims as the old ones didn't survive being removed! Asked National Windscreens to also fit a genuine BMW Windscreen as thats what was currently on there! I had to send them a complete list of required parts, but they did a very good job in fitting it!! Total cost for parts without the fitting was nearly £1000 :shock:

Now I just need to find time and remove all Pannels for a nice complete re-repaint :D I also need to repair cracks on both front Wings and a small crack near the Drivers Door Lock before dropping parts off to the painters, should be fun!! :rtm:

What will be your process for the crack repairs on the panels ?

I’ll probably Plastic weld and reinforce by melting some wire Mesh into the Plastic then bond a Plastic patch over the top

Hi m8, looking round 2k! if I had somewhere to prep it myself I would have saved a few £! There's a local family run paint shop near me that’s been in business for yonks! Since I’ve not worked in a Body shop for 25+ Years so I’ve lost all my contacts so have to just have go on instinct :P Also, the fact they are local I can drop all the Panels of without having to drive miles! Hopefully we have a mild October then I’ll start pulling it apart :D
