    Default Front windscreen Citroen DS?

    I'm wanting to replace the front windscreen in my DS. A while back I heard a rumour that one of the national suppliers was carrying stock of good quality ( correct dimension ) front screens for the Citroen DS. Can anyone confirm who this is please.

    Kind regards

    I thought it was European Auto Care.

    By correct dimension do you mean glass thickness ? I recall a story about some thinner glass being available locally that while "aperture dimension" was correct, the thickness wasn't.
    No doubt others will add more, but research well as the thinner glass doesn't fill the grey "rubber".

    The screens that Denton gets are made in Japan I think and have the correct thickness, whereas others are too thin and do not fit the seal properly.

    Hi Michael,

    Give PGI a call - they make a screen for the D which is 5.2mm thick, can be ordered tinted green with or without the band.

    I bought two some time ago and one is fitted to the 69 with a NOS windscreen rubber - it looks perfect to me.

    The great thing was the cost - $178 each and made in Australia. There seems to be a branch down your way.

    Cheers,

    Mark...

    Windscreen was delivered today, brilliant, it is actually 6.07mm thick. For anyone that is interested I have included a pic of the markings. Subtle tint without the band across the top.

    I purchased through Auto Glass Solutions 1300 887 510 in Victoria.

    OK, tongue in cheek here. Front windscreen. Is there any other type. Heard of side and rear windows but never a Back windscreen.

    You've probably never seen front brake lights, either.

    Bill Schenk will attest that a rear windscreen is useful in a Traction when a hill is so steep that you have to reverse the vehicle up the hill.

    Hell knows what he does re front brakelights and rear headlights....

    Still 'tongue in cheek' perhaps it should be call a Rear Portal, so that you can see the way back to where you came from simply by hitting the reverse mode button.

    I was curious of people have had a windscreen for a ds recently fitted by obrien.

    Interested in the supplier glass quality more than fitting as I will probably have a go at fitting myself.

    Reason being I have a neighbour who works for them and once I "board the bus" it may not be easy to get off.

    Thanks
    Alex

    Further to replacing the front windscreen I have been looking at options for the mastic material to deal the bottom.

    One option seems to be a caulking gun of butyl mastic something similar to - Bostik Mastic Sealer 490g Cartridge Flex Sealant 5614 Non-Drying Butyl Black x 3

    The more traditional option seems to be a roll of mastic something like - https://www.franzose.de/en/Citroen-D...ngen/ANR35032/

    One final option for me is composite vacuum forming mastic which i have already something like - 50ft Vaccum Bagging Tacky Tape High - Tack High - Temp Vacuum Bag Seal black | eBay

    Looking for what people have used and had sucess with.

    Thanks
    Alex

    Hello, I used the Franzose plasticine stuff. I made sure I didn't stretch it. I doubled it back on itself for the main run and quadrupled it in the lower corners. It never looks pretty.

    Round butyl tape is the traditional method. It works although the butyl gets hard after 20-30 years...
