Hi Dandy,

you may have seen from other posts that I am trying to track down a replacement windscreen for my 1995 SC. The screen that is currently fitted has a 50mm black border around the edge which supposedly hides the glue that is used to bond the screen in place. However I am sure that have noticed on other vans similar to yours with the raised roof that they do not have this black border???

Am I right or just dreaming?? and if there is no border on yours how is it held in, bonded??? or like the U.K Hiace "Compact" which is held in place with a rubber gasket and does not require the black border as it is not bonded in??

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave - the screen in mine isn't bonded - the rubber keeps it in place. I haven't removed the front screen but I've removed the rear one to tint it (unsuccessfully) The rubber is double lipped and keeps the glass in place

Hi Alan,

thanks for your response, the thing I can't figure out is that some of the SC's have the rubber seal and others like mine are boned and mine and yours are from the same year of manufacture.

The good news for you is that if you ever need to replace yours a U.K Hiace "Compact" screen will fit at 100.00 fitted Very Happy where as mine will be 450.00 No

Oh well thems the breaks!!

Ps, really like the plumbing on your van, someone has made a great job of bolting on that turbo!!


Regards,

Dave

Yep, its a neat job - I had it overhauled because some idiot plumbed the engine breather the wrong way forgetting the intake was now blown and dirty oil was getting to the turbo bearinigs from the oil drain tube!
All sorted now though - happy chappy, makes a huge improvement over stock.
It's a basic non coolant cooled turbo, so I fitted a turbo timer to it to keep the engine running for up to a minute after shutdown to give the turbine an easier time Very Happy
