As Alot of you have probably seen from Facebook. I need a new windscreen. I have a chip the size of a 50p right in the eye level bit!

What do I do. How do I go about fixing it? Preferably before Saturday :/ x

Most insurances cover you for chip repairs. Call AUTO GLASS they will check and come out to you and repair it. 99% of the chip will disappear . Good luck.

If they can't repair it maybe because it classed as what they call in the A zone (this can fail an MOT) , and surgest you need a new screen then insist on a a real MINI screen with the MINI badge ingraving. This sometimes come with a cost depending on your insurance.

Li if it's more than the size of a 5p (9mm) in your eye view then it's a MOT fail as said.

Are you insured fully comp? if so then your screen should be insured although you will have an excess to pay (typically between £50 - £75) if you only have Third party F & T then you may not be insured for screen damage where you will need to pay yourself Neutral

Your insurer will have an arrangement with a screen company and will point you in there direction, if you go elsewhere then as Chris said you will need to pay a higher excess Exclamation

Li I've had a stone chip the size of a 50p since 2 weeks after I had Oscar and i wont change it due to worries about leaks and not getting a proper Mini screen as a replacement. However, mine is not in eye level and has not failed the MOT.

Li, I think it best you just go with your insurers repairer. Yes there are some horror stories but on the other hand there are a lot of great repairs out there. Same in any trade I'm affraid. Plus you will have the backup of your insurer if things don't go quite to plan Smile
