Thread: Replacing Alpine Window on Discovery 2

    Default Replacing Alpine Window on Discovery 2

    Had an argument with a tree last night and the drivers side alpine window got smashed. Looks like it's bonded?? Has anyone any experience of replacing one of these and apart from the glass obviously what else do I need and is it a DIY job or (aghhhhhhh) am I going to have to pay a garage to do it? Many thanks

    I'd have thought that a windscreen shop would have been able to do it, they have the gear for bonding new glass, and you can buy the glass yourself.
