The windscreen on my 93 CSE has what look like metallic bars on the top 2 or 3 ins, thin strips.
Anybody any idea what these are, I cannot see any electrical connections to them.

I believe these attach to the screen frame and are there as a safety feature to hold the screen in place in the event of a crash. New screens no longer have these...well the genuine Saab screen I fitted in 2003 didn't have any.

I'm not sure, but I have heard it said that Ford has the patent on this. If that is the case, then I am sure Ford would sue other manufacturers unless they were to grant licences for their use on other marques.
