hmmmm...

Lets leave it at this... i didnt like the rear window so i broke it... i have now learnt from my mistake and want to replace it!!!

Do they stock them in the uk??? Does anyone have any idea how much my wallet will hurt after??? Is there any other bits i need mouldings etc???

Cheers

The rear windscreen? You're joking aren't you?! You are going to so hope you are... There is no chance you'll get one in the UK, unless Euroautosalvage have one. They are too big for most usual Jap sources to sell them too.

Price is going to hurt. Big time. As in you really will have to go via insurance. S14 rears screens are around ?1500...

Might be worth checking with a few places just to get a price. Try Japanparts and Feast Japan. I know Perfectrun won't do a windscreen.

By lifting up the rear wiper??? Blimey, better be careful when I change my blade next...

But then a good excuse to get polycarbonate windows :D

It doesn't lift fully like the fronts. Force it too far and it will pull the glass mounting and cause the glass to crack...

Let this be a warning to people choosing insurance. Cheapest isn't always better. Always make sure you've got windscreen cover. Unless you've got a spare ?550 for a front screen, ?300 for a quarter glass or ?1350 for a rear screen... You'll also get chips and small cracks repaired for free.
