The RSSOC keep a stock of heated screens that are apparently often cheaper than new unheated.

I have an unwanted unheated laminated screen but it has begun to turn a milky white along the lower edge, the reason I removed it.

Never thought about it before.......was there a mix of laminated & toughened - or were all the screens laminated? I think I have a spare, untinted windscreen in my lock-up......but, no idea what type it is.... :oops:

Yes, I think you could specify either (and they have different seals IIRC).

I have about 5 Triplex screens and they are the same size and thickness as a laminated screen as best I can tell.

I suspect the traders now only supply one type of seal but I recall looking in the parts manual and there were different part numbers for each type of glass?

May have been the Infil that was different Jim, you could get it in black rubber or chrome type composite :?:

Edit, the screens I have are NOT Immaculate, after years of storage and movement they all have slight imperfections.
But they would get someone out of a fix if they broke theirs or MOT fail. 8)

Just checked QRG online parts manual and it only has one seal - I’ll check my books this weekend.
