    Help! Here in France (abbeville) roof light blown off in strong gusts of wind. Where can we get it replaced near here?

    If you cannot get replacement buy a large plastic storage box and fasten it down with cable ties. It will get you home

    Out of interest (apologies for nosiness) was it open while travelling when it came off? I see quite a few driving with them up and often think it risky

    Glad you are sorted, enjoy the trip now :)(y)

    Don't know if this is true or an urban myth, a salesman told us that it could end up with the windows blowing out, or even the side panels if high pressure eg on motorways. :Eeek:

    No, I was particularly surprised as it was fully closed! Mind you the gusts were VERY strong.
