SE6/GTC heated rear window fitting issues

Post by gtcse8 » Sun Sep 27, 2020 6:53 pm

Mod edit - split from discussion about front windows

I have had terrible results with the rear SE6 screens.
I have re fitted quite a few over years as I produce the Brass fish plates and use SS countersunk screws without ever breaking one.
but a New heated screen cracked just as we were looking at it :cloud:
I had a friend there to give me help if I needed it and he witnessed the cracking and we could not believe it.
