    Default 205 windscreen removal

    Is there a trick to doing this? How do you release the rubber from the inside (and then push out I suppose)?

    Lump hammer - one smart blow and then tidy up the edges..

    Sit on the seat and put your feet up against the screen, around the edges first. However, the 205 is hard to get the windscreen out without breaking, but give it a try.

    I did it many times on my 205 that had the roof replaced poorly. I used a large blade blunt screwdriver, and working from the centre at the top pushed the rubber under the metal edge 12mm at a time along the top and down the sides. It then pushes out easily without breakage. The panel beaters were surprised that even after 5 times I had not broken the windscreen. Just patient and steady, rather than getting two guys with their feet up against it pushing it out and running the high risk of breakage.

    Sign up with Shannons before you start. They give you one free windscreen per year.
