Can’t you drive slower so the wind isn’t too strong and you won’t feel like you need a screen

Possibly but it's got my phone holder attached to it.

Will a new windscreen have a replacement attached?

If not, you’ll have to cut a hole with a glass cutter and stick it to the new one.

Bad luck... You should have covered the screen in phone protectors, I've never chipped a phone screen with one of those on.

Then noticed low down on the drivers side a bloody great stone chip about the size of a 50p  >:(


Can’t you just glue a 50p to it?

Thanks.

I thought I'd chip in with something different.

Was in the car today as weather crap and being a pussy, but on the way heard that loud 'gunshot' sound that usually means windscreen damage but thought I'd got away with it.

Then noticed low down on the drivers side a bloody great stone chip about the size of a 50p  >:(

Looked on the Autoglass website and it reckons anything over 1.5cm in the drivers wiper blade range is a replacement screen.

Bugger!
