Hi,

Has anyone out there ever removed the windscreen from an X1/9? What's the best way to do it (apart from just using a hammer...) - any suggestions?

Thanks

hi, you need to remove the outer trim which is stuck to like the screen,then a sharp knife to cut the screen out from inside the car.it can be done but will take some time,if not a mobile windscreen fitter can do the job

OK, sounds like fun - I'll give it a go. Wish me luck!

Thanks,

Success! Used a disposable yellow plastic Stanley knife for some of it, but the best thing was a pizza cutting wheel (the sort that you find in the packet when you buy a pizza from the supermarket). It was history by the time I'd finished but it did the job a treat!

Thanks for the advice Shaun (y)

Cheers,
J.
