    Hi guys
    Basically we have pulled off three of the "suckers" on the front windscreen internal screen.
    Don't want to buy a new one, so any ingenious repairs that any of ye have done.

    Depending on what's left on the screens, you could either just by some replacement suckers or if you can't simply replace them get some new suckers and a 'hole' making kit and put some on in a slightly different place on the screens. Alternatively you could stick some Velcro onto the windscreen/cab windows and on the screens too - it wouldn't take much to make the stick so you could do this in the top/bottom corners out of the way/line of sight.

    thanks minxygirl.i never thought of the Velcro.
    the suckers would not go back on so the Velcro seems to be the way to go

    I know you say you don't want to buy a new one - but perhaps consider "upgrading" to an external screen.
    From all accounts they are so much better in lots of different ways.
    If patient, there are some 'used' bargains to be had.
    Just a thought

    We cut up our internal screens to clip onto the windows when open in Spain, to reflect the heat out. Duct tape around the edges and clothes pegs to secure to window; job done!

    We cut our internal screen up to fit onto the side window to reflect the heat away in Spain. Duct tape around the edges and held onto the windows with clothes pegs.
