Looks like having to get autoglass to do it on my insurance later today but have spoken to Renault UK who are "looking into it"!

Has anyone else had experience of this happening? The window was undamaged! Last time I shut the lift up window was 4 days ago!

I am DISGUSTED by Renault - or rather at this time the dealer! NO OTHER car i've owned has done this!

like my inspiron sport you may find the socket on the piston rod came off the lower ball window fixing allowing the rod to punch through the screen. these rods would take 'arnie' to press them in. mine blew out while the car was fast asleep on the drive. had it fixed by autoglass but it has come off three times since. once today!! no glass broke though. make sure the ball fixing is positioned right and the screw isnt threaded. i'm going to find out if there is a torque setting for the screw before i put mine back.....know what u mean about dealers. found myself a proffesional garage thats nothing to do with renault..
