Replacing rear screen

Did ask this a good few years ago but things may have changed since then. My current B is now beyond economical repair. It will be going up for sale for parts shortly. Have seen a possible replacement but it needs a replacement rear windscreen. Looks lie I can get one from Germany for about £115 inc the tools to do the job. Anyone tried it, if so, how easy was it?

Re: Replacing rear screen

I seem to recall there was a thread on that a few years ago, and that it was a very fiddly job. It certainly put me off doing mine, but as I never use my B with the hood up, I can like with a cloudy screen!

Re: Replacing rear screen

How much would you want for the windshield wiper assy, I don't need the motor? Mine works but is rusted badly. The only place on the entire car where I found rust.

Re: Replacing rear screen

Update: I have been able to persuade a friend to do the welding for me that needs to be done to get it through it's MOT. If I can do that for a few hundred quid then I will keep hold of it for a few more years. The one I went to look at was a real mess bodywise although mechanically sound. Dealer seemed keen to get rid of it. Was on for £2500, but am sure he would take £1K less. Sorry for getting hopes up about possible spare parts. If things chance, I will be back in touch.

Re: Replacing rear screen

Great to hear that you won't be breaking it. They are getting rarer by the week, and too many have been written off for the sake of just a few ££.
