  • Windscreens for Maestros and Montegos

    With various members and forum users having difficulty in obtaining windscreens for their car I contacted Pilkington Glass
    Prices are as follows and do not include VAT. There is a 6-8 week wait for the company to make them.
    Although not cheap, if your insurance company can't find one you can point them here
    www.pilkington.com

    Eurocode
    7013ABZBZ1C Rover Montego 251.65
    7013ABZ Rover Montego 210.47
    7013ABZBL Rover Montego 251.65
    7013ABZBZ Rover Montego 251.65
    7013ABZGN Rover Montego 251.65

    7011ABZ1C Rover Maestro 301.87
    7011ABZBZ1C Rover Maestro 332.44
    7011ABZ Rover Maestro 278.05
    7011ABZBL Rover Maestro 332.45
    7011ABZBZ Rover Maestro 332.45

    Rimmer Brothers are charging 270.83 plus VAT for the Montego Windscreen and I can't see any Maestro options on the site

      Hi Jeff - its greatly appreciated you have done this - as it seems to be a indefinite supply now.

      Regarding the eurocodes - why so many variations? I thought they were all the same? I'm prepared to be enlightened though.

      What eurocode would a mg maestro turbo be?

      cheers

        Not sure, think clear Maestro windscreens but I may be wrong.

          I assume the codes are for
          Clear with top tint?
          Clear
          Bronze
          Bronze with bronze top tint
          Bronze with blue top tint

            I used this chap when I had a new windscreen fitted to my Maestro. He had the screen I needed (clear) in stock, came out to me, supplied and fitted for 130 cash. Think he covers the whole of Essex.

                    I had one made and fitted this year for 105 by National Mobile Windscreens. They made me a bronze one and the price included a new rubber seal.

                    The highest price from that list plus VAT is 398.94. Nearly four times the cost from National Mobile Windscreens.

                      That's a great price Matt.
                      Do you have any other details or is it just a national number
                      I only put these up as a club members insurance couldn't get one and some are struggling to get one. It's only for reference not recommendation.

                        I understand. I dealt with the depot closest to the car which was the Swindon branch. They organised the rest.

                        If it's through insurance the excess is usually about 70 so if the screen costs 400 that is no concern of the owner. However the rubber seal is about 30 and not covered by the insurance. So my recent screen which I paid for myself cost no more than going through insurance.

                          My new monty has a crack and a chip in the screen. It looks like a green tint. "7013ABZGN" would the "GN" stand for green?

                            Would have to assume so yes, go through your insurance company

                              Are you sure it is a green tinted screen? They do exist, but only original export Gulf States spec Montegos had green tinted glass. As yours is that nice green1.6LX model, then as standard it would have had a bronze tinted screen with the old fashioned bronze darker tinted shade band, but of course you could replace the screen with whatever you like
