Hi Darren

I suggest you get the dimensions off Pilkingtons on the two screens as I suspect they are talking about bonded versus rubber seal versions. As far as I know there is only one bonded in version size. If you are in any doubt I can measure the trim measurement on mine and we can compare to yours as I know exactly what screen I ordered from them. I also have spare windscreens which you can offer up to your car if you wish.

Hi Darren

I can confirm the bonded windscreen is slightly larger (I bought one a while ago and compared to bonded version and there is approx 1-2 cm difference).

If you have the trim off then you should be able to measure what you have. Suggest you check it is a snug fit in the aperture just in case someone has tried to fit a seal one instead…….

hi peter , i have measured an old screen and i have nudged the chrome rim joint strips over on my spyder and both have a measurement of 685mm height x 1290mm on longest bottom point on curvature, does this size ring a bell to your one you ordered, thx

Hi Darren

Below is the label from the new screen I bought from them earlier this year. The dimensions are in line with what you have. It also gives you the 4716 part number. The letters after that are the tints. Hope that helps.

Peter

Thought it might be helpful to give an idea of lead times - my new screen for my coupe was delivered yesterday, ordered 2nd August.
