    Leaking windscreen

    Hi, Has anyone had a leaking windscreen. When it rains the front windscreen leaks from the top like a tap. I have tried to seal it from the outside but it didn't work. Any input would be appreciated.

    When I had mine replaced on a D1 it was amazing how much rust there was under the windscreen. I was able to be treated, but if ignored I reckon the aperture would have crumbled

    Depending on how old the screen is, it probably wasn't sealed properly by the windscreen mob that fitted it. It is amazing how many bad fitters are out there, and they all aren't small fitters. O'O'O'O'BBBBB comes to mind.
    Only way out, get a pro to remove and refit or get a new one.

    Yep, had them re do mine they fitted as it started becoming opaque within a week, seems water got between the laminate of the glass.

    OB had mine 4 times, then when that screen broke I went somewhere else. They said the screen had been leaking. Nno wonder I could not find where the leak was, I was looking everywhere but the screen.
