Has anyone here done DIY windshield removal on an X150? Just gauging the level of difficulty for my leather dash shrinking fix. Thanks.
You probably need this;
Getting it back in is probably a bit more than a DIY job as they now supply structural support and are bonded in.
I will have a go at most jobs , but I wouldn’t do that . I watched the pros fit a new screen to my old X Type . I would guess 1 hour to take out and clean up and half an hour to refit .
I had a fitter help me fit my XK140 screen as I broke the first at my attempt . It took us 2 hours in the evening and he only wanted a tip, I gave him £20 , what a bargain .
That would be about right, its the laying of the bead of sealant thats the important piece, and the prep before laying it down. That’s where I feel it becomes a more intensive job and falls out of the realms of DIY.
There could be insurance implications for diy-ing a modern bonded screen because they are a structural part of the vehicle. Like Jim, I’m up for most things, but would draw the line at that.
I had the windshield installed in my 150 Roadster by a professional. Cost was $100.00 US and he also installed the chrome. Would not try myself. I would probably break the glass, screw up the mounting rubber, bend the chrome.
