Windscreen

Recommended Posts

Hello anyone, I'm prepping my car for IVA - an old S7

I'm trying to replace a windscreen - the old toughened one got broke. I want to put laminate in, and have found a supplier, but I want to know about stamps. The stamp that the IVA mentions is E43 (or is as I understand the manual. The stamp the supplier will put on is EN14449/3/SG. Does anyone know whether that is equivalent, and acceptable for IVA?

I know MK do a screen kit for about £500, but sourcing the laminate is about a 10th of the price.

MK Screen would be unlikely to fit an S7.

Cant comment on markings required, but I do have an S7 screen and frame should you need one.

Thanks for responding!

And thanks for the gen on the MK screen - that was a reservation I had as they seemed to be shaped to fit a curved scuttle.

Your screen sounds interesting. May I ask is it toughened or laminate?

Cheers

Good question, I assume toughened as BS mark is BS857/2 1967 and no mention of laminated, although I only peeked through the bubblewrap

Well our friend Wiki tells me that it could mean either - B83 1967 is safety glass in land vehicles. The /2 might signify which - I'll have to do some more digging. If its the original from the S7 it's probably toughened - not sure that they did laminate. That might get me through the IVA - I'll have to check. Can always put my own lam in later.

How much were you wanting, and are you able to post?

Will you include the postage in the £50?

I'm good for weather gear 😆 Sounds like you've some spring cleaning to do!

The BS number is current, I just need to confirm that the DVSA people will accept it and won't insist on ECE43.

Haha yeh, I've got a few bits I'll be needing to clear out, going to be making a list at the weekend.

Send me a PM once you have confirmed if it will be any good and we'll sort it out.

Great stuff, I'm just pinging an email toe the DVSA to get some advice - hopefully they'll be able to confirm. I'll give you a shout when I hear back from them.

Great speaking to you Duck

Cheers

You don't need a screen on for IVA, just leave it off. If you have a screen, you'll have to have working 2 speed wipers, demisting vents - the works. And they'll check all that for sharp edges.

I went through great lengths to go through IVA properly with a screen, and it's perfectly doable. Like you say, the important part is supposed to be the marking of the screen with an E marking, in particular the roman numerals to the edge of the circle denote whether the screen is toughened (I) or laminated (II or III).

Cost around £100 for the screen from a template I had to send to the chap (laminated).

I do wonder whether the IVA guy even checked it, to be honest, I *think* he did but I wonder whether it was close inspection or just a glance for an E mark and that was it :)

Thanks, that did occur to me. The manual says that if fixings are obvious it will be trated as if the screen is missing, although it didn't define fixings. I got the car as a part complete a while back, and the cuttle ha holes for the brackets, and for the demisters and wipers. apart from looking a mess, I was worried that the inspectors would simply say the screen is missing. HAve you heard of that happening?

LOL, yeah, I could just wing it, but my luck dictates that I'd get the thorough chap!😂 I see that you have the proper E mark, and not just a BS. Do you remember your supplier?

I agree with Nelmo don't fit windscreen for IVA.

Thanks, yes it's an option. I was just saying to Nelmo that I'm not sure that I could wing it with the current condition of the scuttle
