Just got in my car and noticed that as I closed the door the windscreen moved. I pressed the inside of it and discovered that the entire drivers side of the screen could be pushed away from the car.
Theres no damage to the screen, is it possible to get it rebonded or will it crack when they try and remove it?
I don't have glass cover so can't call the insurance co.
First post - so hi to all.
For whatever the reason, the bond has failed; this could be due to poor installation (if it has been replaced) bad preparation or a combination of the two. OEM-installed screens have been known to come loose - Alfas are not as notorious as many Ford models have been in the past, but they have
cropped up from time to time IME.
I would strongly advise that you have a professional have a look at this for you. One very strong possibility for the failure could be the presence of a surface contaminant (silicon) which will be around the perimeter of the screen (comes from part of the glass manufacturing process). This is not always removed and in any case, a proper bonding system should be used (correct cleaning and priming materials).
Laminated screens can
crack very easily in the wrong hands. Given some (if not all) the screen has come unstuck, removing it should be easy but for the sake of what it costs, why not pay for some peace of mind (and a guarantee) that comes from using an experienced professional who will have the right tools and materials.
Good luck in getting it sorted.
