Fast asleep in bed this morning when my car alarm went off. Just been out earlier to check on it and some little scrote has kicked both mirrors in and smashed the side window :evil: :evil: :evil:

Question is can anyone tell me how bonded windows are fitted or even better give me instructions on how to fit one?

Ta very much
Si

if its bonded you need to a auto glass place to fit the new glass for you.
its glued into place with a special glue not something your likely to have kicking around in the shed.
that said if your competant and can lay your hands on the glue you will need to cut the old bonding off (carefully obviously)and clean the area down to remove all traces of oil/grease etc etc then you apply glue to new glass then fit into hole its that simple (dependant on car you may have a trim to replace around the glass)
