Hello fellow members,

I hope you all are well and keeping safe.
So since lock down I haven’t really been using the 182 and I went out the other day and went for a drive. Right behind my rear view mirror I noticed a crack in my windscreen.
So I pulled over to asses the situation only to find out I have a crack approx 15 cm from the top of the screen down.
Only noticed it Because it started to show under the rear view mirror.

so either a hater cracked it but (highly unlikely) or due to the heat wave maybe that caused it.
Or maybe a stone chip that I never noticed has turned into a full on crack.

just wanted to know who to go to for a replacement.
I have Hastings direct ( windscreen cover included on my policy)

I want a original blue tinted replacement done with new seals.
Any idea who I should use lads ???
To mention I want my wiper and headlight sensor to work and not damaged in the process.

Any of the big guys can supply what you want. You’ll have to pay extra for an OEM screen though.

Thanks for the response , when you say I have to pay extra why is that ?? Should I tell my insurance ??

Because the likes of autoglass don’t supply OEM glass if it’s a £75 (Or whatever your insurance excess is) windscreen Replacement. If you want genuine glass you’ll have to pay the difference in cost.

I've had the proper UV resistant tinted glass under my windscreen cover, it wasn't a Renault windscreen but it was still like for like and I was asked on the phone if it was.

I bought a new seal kit from Renault and just gave it to the guy fitting

I see, after doing some research some people have said that they have supplied the correct windscreen. I will call my insurance company and see what they say.

Hmmm, so they won’t replace the seal ??? And the screen isn’t from Renault??? Does anyone know how much a Renault screen is ???

Possibly they would if required but my deal was in poor condition and I wanted a nice one that fitted perfect so went for a genuine one.

No, all windscreen companies just fit their own screens but they generally are identical except instead of Renault it says autoglass etc.

If the screens are still available from Renault I would assume hundred or pounds
