Cracked Windscreen + TPFT Insurance = £££!!

Am looking to gather some experiences of windscreen replacement after my 1990 9000T windscreen cracked on friday. Initially I thought I was covered under my insurance, but it appears that I was confused by some very crafty wording!

I have had numerous quotes now from various places, ranging from National Windscreens (£155+VAT), £235+VAT from RAC, and £423inc VAT from Autoglass. Most saab dealers now seem to refer me to windscreen centres, as they nolonger stock the parts.

I'm a touch confused about the issues of original spec glass and trim against generic items. Can anyone offer me advice about this or experiences of the above companies. I am especially intrigued by National Windscreens who seem to be by far the cheapest....has anyone ever had a screen from them??

Thanks in advance for your help and comments!!

Andy.

It is quite normal for a TPFT policy not to cover glass. Your policy is not unusual.

If I have selected the correct part then the windscreen itself from a Saab dealer will be £165.26 incl vat. That is for the part (the windscreen) itself.

My advice to you would be to contact a Saab dealer or a Saab specialist who will be able to help.

Quite a few dealers I have come across, not just Saab, use their own windscreens, but pay Autoglass or another specialist to put them in.
