    I broke a habitation window this weekend! Can anyone suggest where we can get a new one that won't cost an arm as well as a leg?:cry:

    Hello, fellow Salopian!

    I think you'll need to give more info to get a sensible reply!

    Replacement window

    Hi Salopian,

    I have now received some advice on measuring said window so here is the information that suppliers apparently require:

    Across the hinge bar: 60"
    From the bottom of the hinge bar to the bottom of the window measured on the inside: 24"
    Colour as coded on window: Roxite/94/D399/Polyplastic Rotterdam

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. Jenny

    probably the excess combined with the increase in premium at renewal will be far more than buying a window direct. :Eeek:

    Hi BMB1UK

    We have a broken habitation window - do you think that would be covered by windscreen insurance?

    Try Caraparts - you will find a shop on fleabay, just tap caraparts into your search engine and they will pop up.

    CALL THEM - as they have warehouses full of stuff, and only a small selection is online. They buy 'old stock/bankruptcy stock' and break vehicles. Very cheap, a £1200 seitz window was delivered brand new, 8am the following day for £400 - Quite a difference!

    Broke my kitchen window last year and insurance said only glass windows are covered by Autoglass etc ie: windscreen and door windows not the plastic habitation windows. New window quoted at £267, second hand found for about £50.

    Hi Ninjayorkies

    Where did you get your second-hand window from?

    I'll have to look for the email as all I can remember is that the place is in Essex. I haven't got it yet as I want to see before I buy so I'm still driving around with a plastic sheet taped over the window and lowering the tone :ROFLMAO:

    Hi Rainbow Chaser

    Have heard back from Caraparts who say they have never supplied Roxite windows, which is the type we need. They only do Seitz windows. Thanks for your suggestion anyway. Jenny
