Hi all,
can the rear perspex bit of window at the back be replaced (scratched) or does the whole rear window need doing?

cheers

methinks it is seperate and bonded.. the window is glass and the bottom is plastic..... see if the stealer can give you a price for it then you will know... think OWLS is doing tint for this rowbo and fairly well priced......

The perspex window "is" bonded in,the outer plastic trim under the glass also need`s to come off.
Was talking to a window fitter yesterday about the same thing, he said it can be a bit tricky.

I've seen the perspex window being sold on eBay so it must be able to be seperated from the rear windscreen.

Im going to sort rowbo out ;), ive tinted my lower rear window 3-4 weeks ago and notone sign of it bubleing etc, unless it depends on the quality of the tint ;), but at £20 its worth a shot

I would leave it unless it`s really bugging you.
The full tailgate need`s to be stripped to fit the perspex window, light`s removed, the outer plastic trim (the bit with the badges and number plate on) then you would have to order new clip`s that hold the outer plastic trim on as these break when removing.These clip`s have rubber washer`s and small pieces of sponge around to stop water leak`s.
Going by the price of it from ling`s then add on clip`s and then some one to remove the old one and refit the new one, it would be a bit pricey.
